Bounce Scholar of the Week: Twan Flip

Bounce Scholar of the Week: Twan Flip

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - Each week during the school year, Project L.I.F.T. selects a student who is excelling not only inside the classroom, but outside as well.

The student - along with their favorite teacher - is featured every Wednesday on WBTV News on Bounce at 8 p.m. The program operates within the Charlotte-Mecklenburg School System.

This week's scholar is Twan Flip, an 8th grader at Ashley Park PreK-8 School.

Bio: Twan Flip is a natural leader both inside and outside the classroom. He has been at Ashley Park since Kindergarten, and has been working with the same mentor (in his picture) since 3rd grade.

He is a standout athlete on the Sedgefield football team and has help lead them to an undefeated record all while maintaining his academics.

Twan often uses his leadership skills by volunteering and co-teaching Health and Physical Education classes when his teacher was out for three days. Twan Flip is more than deserving to be the Bounce Scholar of the Week!
