Kristina Graves is a 2008 graduate of Wardlaw Academy. After graduating from Wardlaw, she went on to receive her Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education from the University of South Carolina. Kristina said, Leaving Wardlaw and attending USCA was a very smooth transition for me. I knew that my teachers at Wardlaw truly cared about me. The small class setting promoted the development of good relationships with teachers, which in turn gave me the confidence to build good relationship with my college professors. Kristina is grateful for the many activities she was able to be a part of during her time at Wardlaw. Kristina stated, While at Wardlaw I played several sports, volunteered to be an FCA leader, and served as the President of the Student Body. I made it a point to do all these things while maintaining high academic standards. These things helped me develop time management and organizational skills that helped me succeed in college. I recommend students develop these habits while in high school and to get involved in every activity available. Colleges are looking for leaders! Kristina believes she learned many life lessons while being a part of the Wardlaw family and made friendships that will last her a lifetime. Wardlaw was blessed to have Ms. Graves come back to the Wardlaw family 5 years ago to teach the second grade, coach basketball, and lead the FCA. #whywardlaw
