Krista Jasso- Weddington High School, El Paso, TX
I am originally from El Paso, Texas but I moved to Charlotte, North Carolina about 9 years ago. In June I graduated from Weddington High School and it is about the size of the Abbey (student wise). I have been dancing since I could walk and I have been a dance teacher at a local studio for the past 4 years. I come from a Mexican-American family so growing up as devout Catholics it was really interesting to learn about traditions of my Mexican heritage.
John Wilson – Homeschooled, Hartland, ME
I was homeschooled growing up. I participated in sports through the local public schools. I graduated in Maine in 2013, and was accepted to Belmont Abbey and the Hintemeyer program but delayed entry by a year so I could enlist in the Marine Corps reserve. I went to Boot Camp in June 2013. I’m coming in this year as a wrestler and Hintemeyer.
Elizabeth Brandolini – Homeschooled, Albany, NY
I’m originally from Albany, New York. My family and I moved to North Carolina in 2008. I’ve been home-schooled through all my years of schooling.
Joshua Brand – Homeschooled, Marietta, GA
I’m from Marietta, Georgia, and I was happily homeschooled through my high school years! I’m the middle child of three, and my older sister is currently enrolled at Belmont with me. I’m also an Eagle Scout of Troop 75 and was Peer Ministry Chair at Transfiguration Catholic Church, just to name two things I’m really proud of.
