Zantia Friday, a recent graduate of Dallas County High School, has been awarded a $500 Reach Your Potential Scholarship from Potential Magazine. In every issue, Potential features outstanding teens in the “Spotlight” section. Each year, a committee selects one of those spotlights to receive the scholarship. Friday was profiled in the Fall 2018 issue, and stood out amongst all the other students, according to a release.

At Dallas County High School, Friday was a member of the volleyball team and band, as well as Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA) and Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA). When asked to share what makes her unique, Zantia answered, “I think what makes me different is my personality. I am always the same, no matter what. I’m a peace-keeper and a smile-maker.”

Potential Magazine is a multimedia resource for parents of college-bound teenagers. In each issue, high achieving River Region students in the seventh-twelfth-grade are featured and entered to win the $500 Reach Your Potential Scholarship and $250 Reader’s Choice Scholarship.
