All-American teen has eyes set on her future

MURRELLS INLET, SC (WMBF) - Aimee Poulin, 17, is a spirited young lady wrapping up her final year in high school doing what she loves most: cheerleading.

She's the captain of the varsity squad at St. James High School and boasts a long list of accomplishments over the past four years. She landed on the National Honor Society and volunteers every summer with Salkahatchie Summer Service to make community members' homes safer.

The senior is also involved in Fellowship of Christian Athletes, and her desire to follow in her mother's footsteps and become a nurse is why she takes the health science internship class.

"That's with Mr. Krause and I go after school, I don't have a fourth block, I go to three different facilities and I go to one that's a physical therapy facility and so it's really helped me a lot realize what I want to do," said Poulin, who recently applied to USC and Charleston Southern.

Where is she really hoping the acceptance letter comes from? "I'm just hoping the letter has the big yes with the Gamecock on the front," she said.

Until college begins, she'll continue to make good grades and cheer the Sharks on to victory.
