Catching up on Rebecca Combs


I featured Rebecca Combs, a senior at Providence, this March for the Young Achievers page. Rebecca has cerebral palsy but doesn't let that stop her from excelling in school and leading a full, active teenage life.

I recently heard from her as she's wrapping up her senior year. 

Rebecca decided she'll be attending the University of Alabama in the fall. She got straight As for the third quarter and is now prepping for AP exams next week. 

This weekend, she got her prom dress. "It's so exciting!" she wrote in an email.

Rebecca was nominated for the Presidential Scholars Award, but did not receive it. "I'm just proud to have been nominated," she said.  "All in all, things are going wonderfully for me."
