ATLANTA — Drew Charter School senior Jordan McCray has made a lot of people proud after being accepted to more than 75 colleges, and offered more than $1.7 million in scholarship money!
McCray went into the pandemic school year determined to still "get after it" despite all the challenges – and it paid off.
Out of the 75 schools, she has decided to attend Florida A&M University in the fall and plans to study psychology and political science.
She told 11Alive when it comes to applying for schools, students should remember to have a goal.
"You have a goal, you have to think to yourself, 'if I don't do this now will I be able to reach my goal,'" she said.
And for McCray, she said her goal is to get into the healthcare field, focusing on mental health and advocacy.
