Dear Brookland Union Family,
I, Nyah Orelia Harrison, am proud to announce that I am a graduate of Woodrow Wilson High School Class of 2011. At Wilson High School, I was an active member of the Academy of Finance and Wilson’s Concert Choir. I have been a member in the concert choir for the past two years, and it was a fabulous experience. Being a member of the concert choir allowed me the opportunity to sing at many different venues around the DC area - the National Cathedral, the Washington Post, Temple Shalom, Wilson’s National Honors Society, the Annual Heritage Festival, Wilson’s Black History Month Program, Wilson’s Winter Concert and many more.

Through theses courses, I gained knowledge on what it takes to become an entrepreneur, tax preparation, how to manage money and the importance of spending money wisely. This year I received an award from the Academy of Finance.

Making the honor roll and achieving a GPA above a 3.4 were goals that I strived to maintain during my twelfth grade year; I achieved those goals. During the past three years, I have taken many AP courses, in preparation for future college courses. The AP courses that I took were AP Computer Science, AP Calculus AB, AP English Language & Composition, AP English Literature & Composition,...
