Etanne M. Uruguay"I live in Uruguay with my mom. There is a terrible problem with stray dogs in this country. My mom and I run a pet shelter, Responsible Rescue of Uruguay, where we find homes for the puppies. When I am not cleaning pens or playing with the puppies, I am doing my school work. Whitmore is great because I can do school anytime of day."
Lara B. Fort Mill, SC"I live in South Carolina and commute to Charlotte NC every morning where I spend all day in ballet warm-ups, technique classes, and rehearsals. After a long day, I still manage to find time in the evening to work on school work.
Shyanne W. Fairview, TN"When I was 13, I was asked to star in a docu-reality series called ‘Road to Nashville’ which follows five musicians as we follow our dreams of becoming professional musicians. In 2016, I decided to enroll in Whitmore School so that I could focus on writing and recording in Nashville and Los Angeles. I have been able to keep my grades up and I will even graduate early."
