Hi! I am Matthew, and I am a Senior here at Central. I am a member of the Central Sound marching, concert and jazz bands (award winning bands, btw!). I am also a member of the Chattanooga Mayor's Youth Council, National Honors Society, and Beta Club. After high school, I hope to attend Emory University and eventually become a physical therapist. I am the type of person who strives to do the best in everything I do, so hopefully you will see that in my writing!
