Tony Lieu is a 17 year old student who has attended Garinger High School for four years.

Throughout that time at Garinger he has accomplished and overcome a lot. The result of all his success and accomplishments is shown in his college acceptance letters to two North Carolina colleges: North Carolina State and University of North Carolina.

Tony says he expects to receive more in due time. I sat down with tony in an interview to talk about his plans after high school. Tony told me that he is excited about college and ready to go on to be successful in life. I asked him about certain schools, scholarships, and even his FAFSA.

Tony said he’s excited about getting into UNC  Chapel Hill. He also said that he’s applying for a scholarship known to many Tarheels as the Carolina Covenant, which entitles recipients to a full ride.

Qualifications for the scholarship include being from a low income family but having a amazing academic profile, in which Tony says he’s “good so far.”

Tony has a 4.5 G.P.A and says he’s worked very hard to accomplish everything. He doesn’t plan on stopping. When asked if he has applied to any other schools he said he’s waiting on Duke but won’t be “too disappointed “if he does not get in.

Tony summarized his years at Garinger in this way:

“It’s been very challenging, fun, and a thing to remember,” adding that he hopes that his class has helped to “change the face of Garingerand how people view it. ”
