That’s the sound of the all-star student golfer, Charles Nelson, striking a ball with his club. Charles, or Charlie, is a senior and a veteran on both the academic and golf teams.

Charlie’s sport repertoire includes golf and tennis, both of which he excels in. He is a veteran of both teams. “They’re really fun,” said Nelson. “Connecting with the team has had a great impact on my life, and my outlook in general.”

In addition, Charlie is also an academic all-star. He has taken multiple AP classes, including AP Calculus BC.  Even with juggling sports, academics, and the wackiness of senior year, he still manages to retain a calm and cool attitude. “It isn’t easy, but I find a way,” said Nelson. “I still have to deal with tons of issues, but it’s not too hard for me to overcome them.”

Charlie shared some advice for underclassmen going into their junior and senior years. “It’s not too hard to keep your GPA up during your early years. Those classes are a breeze,” said Nelson. “Get your extracurriculars in as well. They’ll help you in the long run. Don’t let anything slow you down, either. You’ve got a long journey ahead of you.”
