On Their Way

This comes to us from Ron Giddings, who is a School Counselor at Forsyth Middle College:

JUNE 1, 2021 – Two Forsyth Middle College graduates are on their way:

Day 67Dayshawn Omar Burford

Two years ago, Dayshawn Burford was ready to give up. As former Top 50 athlete and potential Division 1 basketball player, his career in the sport was curtailed by injury. His first semester at the Middle College looked like an extension of previous disappointments.

However, he rediscovered his voice and strength, started to excel in the classroom and as a result received offers to attend several college and universities. In the fall, Dayshawn will attend Fayetteville State University. He plans to major in Business Administration.  






Cindy 6Cindy Figueroa-Martinez

Although she is a native North Carolinian, Cindy Figueroa-Martinez’ parents were born in South America. While she has encountered several challenges, Cindy has thrived at the Middle College despite the odds.

Her academic record and leadership skills have been stellar.

In the fall, Cindy will attend Meredith College. Her career goal is to become a Clinical Psychologist.
