Macy Moore decided in eighth grade to be valedictorian.
She stayed the course for five years and now is the 2018 Corinth High School valedictorian.
A quote from Abraham Lincoln stuck with Moore: “The best way to predict your future is to create it.”
Moore never doubted herself and knew God would carry her through. It is “humbling” to know that her hard work paid off, she noted.
Moore’s parents, Mikki and Andy Moore, set a great example that inspired her to follow in their footsteps.
She has attended Corinth Schools since first grade and had many wonderful teachers and friends.
Moore will major in biomedical engineering at Mississippi State University with plans to attend medical school. She is interested in oncology and emergency room medicine.
Numerous members of Moore’s family have been affected by cancer, and she would like to help people struggling with the disease.
Moore has inherent ambition, drive and confidence. She has always wanted to be the best she can be, whether it is in academics, sports or as a person.
She was a five-year member of the soccer team, six-year member of the cross country team and a cheerleader her senior year. She was a member of many clubs and the Corinth Mayor’s Youth Council.
Moore made many great memories over 12 years and will miss the people. She hopes the next step is just as great.
