Allison Langley knows the importance of making every day count. When she graduated from the Gaston Early College High School on May 17, she was recognized for 13 years of perfect attendance.
In addition to perfect attendance, Allison graduated with a high school degree and an associate degree from Gaston College. Despite a strenuous workload and family obligations, Allison never thought about giving up. Her determination was a source of inspiration for her fellow students, who also were working on completing high school and college coursework.
Heading to Central Piedmont Community College, Allison plans to study cardiovascular technology. She is accustomed to giving 100 percent in school -- her perfect attendance record proves that. Now, she is ready to give it her all in college.
