He loves sharing his Averett experience with families and helping them make the decision to join our wonderful family.
What’s your favorite place in Danville?
My favorite place in Danville is Cotton Tail. It’s a small, wonderful event venue in downtown. Its rustic appearance and history made it the perfect place for my wife and me to get married.
What advice do you have for a student choosing Averett?
My advice to any student joining our family is, life is what you make it and no one else can be responsible for your happiness except for you so make the best of every situation.
What is one interesting fact about you that people don’t know?
An interesting fact that people don’t know about me is that for a few years as a kid I wanted to be and trained to be a ventriloquist. It went terribly and that’s why I am here to help with the admissions journey!
