“I love the tradition and campus, and I love how the blend of style and interests of students at the College is welcomed,” says Natalie Simmons ’15 when asked what she thinks makes the College so unique. Natalie, a native of Goose Creek, SC, has embraced all her interests over the past four years at the College. Natalie is a member of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, SC Teaching Fellows, and the National Society of Collegiate Scholars. In addition, Natalie always wanted to get involved with Big Brothers Big Sisters of America and was finally given the opportunity to be a big Sister through CofC. She cherishes the time she has spent with her “little sister” in the program at Memminger Elementary.
Natalie is also the recipient of the Jeremy Warren Vann Memorial scholarship, that she received for the 2014-2015 academic year. The scholarship is given to a small number of college seniors who are education majors, with a purpose of covering the cost of tuition for those beginning their clinical internship.
After studying early childhood education, with a minor in studio art, she was recently hired to be a first grade teacher at Newington Elementary School in Summerville, SC after she graduates in May.
