Student has heart for animals

Alexandra McMillan already has an idea about what she would like to do with her life, and now she is about to embark on a right of passage that will allow her to achieve a goal she has had since she was a young girl.

McMillan, a senior at Liberty Christian School, has been accepted to the Texas A&M Biomedical program and said, at this point, her objective is pretty clear.

“Right now, I plan on going to the college of Veterinary Medicine,” McMillan said. “That’s what I intend to do right now is to become a veterinarian…I’ve wanted to be a veterinarian since I was in the third grade.”

McMillan said she believes that Liberty Christian has done a good job of preparing her for college.

“I think it has been very good for me because they have a great science program and great courses in all areas, really,” McMillan said.

McMillan is a National Merit Commended student and is ranked sixth in her graduating class with a 4.33 grade point average.

While McMillan is a member of the National Honor Society, Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD) and involved with the science bowl, the Liberty senior is also a member of the Warriors cross country team, which she finds gives her a good balance in life.

“I think it is important to do things other than just school stuff,” McMillan said. “Cross country is kind of a way for me to use up some extra energy, and I also found that doing cross country before I went home to do my homework helped me to focus, because it was a great way to get rid of stress.”

McMillan also has a creative side, stating she really enjoys reading and drawing, and said she will remember a couple of things about her time at Liberty Christian School once she has moved on.

“I will always remember the people that I’ve met,” McMillan said. “I’ve made some great friends and met some very nice and special people there, especially, the teachers. They’ve been really helpful to me and taught me a lot.”
