WC Spotlight - Grace Hough

Grace HoughName:  Grace Hough

Course of study:  Dual Credit/Undeclared

Hometown:  Weatherford

Side notes:  Grace is a 15-year-old homeschooled sophomore who is also a dual credit student at WC and is active in Scouting.

How long have you been a Scout?  I was a member of the faith-based American Heritage Girls for three years before I joined Venturing in August 2013.

What are some of the best skills and traits you have picked up as a Scout?  Confidence, bravery and the concept of servant leadership.

Are you a scholarship recipient?  No. Not unless you count the “My Parents are Paying my Tuition” Memorial College Fund.

What is the best part of attending WC?  The responsibility I get from supporting myself for the future. The more college classes and equivalent credits I receive, the farther along I will be in my future studies. I like having an early start.

What are your post-WC plans?  I plan to achieve a Master of Science degree in Visualization (technology focused art) at Texas A&M University before continuing on to pursue a Ph.D. in the same study.

What are your favorite things to do when you are not at school or studying?  I enjoy playing piano, drawing, and writing fictional stories which I later read to my younger siblings.

What is your dream job?  I want to be either an animator or storyboard artist at Pixar.

How would you describe the individual attention you have received at WC?  My teachers care. I feel that they want to help their students achieve the best possible education while still leaving it up to the student to decide whether or not they make a good grade. If I have a question, I feel comfortable walking up to Dr. Vails or Prof. Cranz after class and asking them about what I need to know. I’m not saying the work is easy, but I feel enabled to do my best.
