Elizabeth Williams signing to McPherson

Elizabeth Williams, senior volleyball player, will attend McPhearson College in Kansas in the fall. The moment Williams stepped on campus she knew it was the right school forĀ her. McPhearson provided her with cooler weather which she was looking for and was really attracted to the academic success rate. Williams plans on majoring marketing and business.

“I chose McPhearson because, the environment was perfect from meeting the volleyball team to touring the campus, I just loved it. I wanted to go out of state and somewhere cold. The success rate is high and there are a lot of opportunities to explore your interests to see if you like it. I plan on majoring in marketing and business because, I’ve always wanted to run my own business,” Williams said.

Nathan Segler, senior golfer, signed to go to Central Christian College of Kansas, and is undecided on his major. Segler looks forward to the next step in life and is ready for the responsibilities awaiting him.

“It’s a growing process and it’ll definitely be different, but I’m ready for the upcoming challenges, and I’ll be narrowing down my possible majors soon,” Segler said.

These Eagles have represented Lake Ridge valiantly and plan on doing the same all over the country next fall.
