Wilson High School student with many interests is an oncologist in the making

FLORENCE, SC (WMBF) - "I'm VP of the Science National Honor Society, and I started a Science Olympiad team this year," said 17-year-old Blythe King, a junior at Wilson High School in Florence. It's safe to say she keeps her plate full of after-school activities and volunteer work.

"I play violin and have been since 7th grade," she says. "I'm also working on the 'Play Me, I'm Yours' project here in Florence."

"I want to major in biology and also I might want to learn Chinese and German on the side," she continues.

In fact , King has so many interests, when asked to choose one favorite, she chose three: "I would say either Science National Honor Society, Science Olympiad or Mock Trial, because for Science National Honor Society and Science Olympiad I get to organize and plan events and lead a group of people, and in Mock Trial, which is really fun, I get up there with people and argue," she said.

Blythe may have multiple interests, but her career and college plans are specific.

"I want to be an onocologist and go to medical school," she said.

She's a doctor-in-the-making, and hoping to one day make a difference with her skills and education, but for now she'll continue to study to make good grades and enjoy her teenage years while they last.

"I'm actually going to prom with a group of friends and we are all going in a limo," she said.
