Our Outstanding Senior from Gaston Early College
is Makazia Wooten.
Makazia Wooten is a first-generation college student, and she’s made her years in high school count. Despite some challenges in life during her time at the Gaston Early College High School, she was able to stay focused on her goal of graduating from high school and also earning an associate of arts degree from Gaston College. In addition to balancing school, working, participating in the Trivia and Disney Club (which does volunteer work in the community), and being a Beta Club member, Makazia was selected to join the Gamma Beta Phi honors society at Gaston College. One of her best attributes is her ability to make good choices and decide what is best for her life. After graduation, Makazia plans to attend UNC-Charlotte, where she will study nursing.
