One of our former Raiders, 21-year-old Nancy Perez, ‘14, is in pursuit of the goals she set for herself during her time in high school.

Perez attended Greenville Technical College for two years to become a dental hygienist. However, she decided to change her career path due to the fact that “it got boring.” Perez wanted to continue to help people, so she decided to stay in the medical field. 

Under the influence of the TV show Grey’s Anatomy, She decided to change her path and become a Surgical Technologist. “I loved watching all the surgeries, even though it was just tv,” she said. Perez found it more exciting because of the way they get to see the body up close and possibly hold the organs in their own hands.

Perez graduated with a degree in surgical technology earlier this year and one day hopes to be able to own her own business, like her father and follow in his footsteps.

She encourages current LDHS students to get involved, enjoy the sports, meet new people and to stay focused in school because “high school goes by faster than you know.”
