    East Gaston - Bryson Boone Bryson Boone has known exactly what he wanted to do ever since he was a freshman at East Gaston High School.
    For the last four years, he has focused on his goal of a career in architectural engineering, taking every course that would help him on his way whether it’s physics, AP Calculus or AP Chemistry.

    “You won’t meet a more dedicated and hard-working student,” said school counselor Jordan Turnipseed, who has watched him pursue his goals for the last four years.

    “He’s taken basically everything he could possibly take dealing with architecture or engineering,” Turnipseed said, noting that he is one of a few students who has made it to the Drafting III class. “He knows so well what he wants to do. You don’t see that very often.”

    Along with his challenging classwork, Boone has also participated as a member of the school yearbook staff, a responsibility given to select students. You can find him taking pictures at ball games and other school events. He also shows up at sporting events as a dedicated member of the student cheering section that supports all of the school teams.

    Boone’s four years of focused classwork have paid off. In the fall, he’s headed to North Carolina A&T University where he received the prestigious $10,000 N.C. Merit Scholarship.
    Congratulations, Bryson Boone -- an outstanding senior in the Gaston County Schools Class of 2016!
