Local graduate has big plans for future

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - 2 years ago, the bright future of Garinger High School's Elexus White seemed in jeopardy. She had fallen in with the wrong crowd and wasn't very respectful to anyone, especially herself.

"I never would have been at this point with the road that I was going on," Elexus said last Friday, on her last day as a Senior at Garinger.

But Elexus found a school counselor who helped put her on the right path. Now she's preparing to pack her bags and head off to Ohio State University in the fall.

Elexus is described by her teachers as a bright and very outgoing young woman. 

"Elexus has a trait as far as relations with people, she can talk to anybody about anything. She can do just about anything she puts her mind to."

Monday morning, Elexus walked across the stage and got her diploma. She says she's proud of herself for getting to this point. As far as the future, she plans on being: A teacher, model, TV journalist, fashion designer, car designer, and possibly, if she has time, a meteorologist.
