My name is Lawrence Ganzy, Jr. and I am serving Halifax County as a College Adviser at Roanoke Valley Early College and Weldon STEM High School for the 2016-2017 Academic Year. I recently graduated from UNC-Chapel Hill with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Political Science. For my high school tenure, I attended Scotland Early College High School in Laurinburg, North Carolina.
I became a College Adviser to help students from a similar background of my own obtain college access. As a result of their background, some students believe they are not able to have a college experience. My goal is to alter this perspective and extend encouragement, a helping hand, and the propel needed, to enable students’ full potential to be reached. Throughout the advising journey, I am most looking forward to empowering my students, making a long lasting impact on their lives, and making a difference in the community at large.
