Ashley Lambert, Senior:

Clemson fan her entire life, Lambert finally decided she would be attending Clemson University in the fall.

Lambert says, “I guess it was meant to be. In my freshman letter to myself, I gave a little update on my life and it said ‘you have straight A’s and you want to go to Clemson. If the last one is true then you must be a fortune teller.’ Long story short I guess I’m a fortune teller!”Credit: Ashley Lambert(used with permission)

Though only 28 days, Academy girls made sure to make the most out of February and are continuing to make the most out of those precious “teenage years”.
