Derek has made a decision and has given his "Verbal Commitment" to accept a track scholarship and attend UNC-Asheville in the fall of 2009.
We all feel this will be a great fit for Derek, both academically and to further him on the track as well.
Derek is very excited, as we are as well.
UNC-Asheville's mascot is the Bulldog....which is great for our family...since we all love bulldogs and I even have a bulldog tattoo for those who didn't know that.
Dawn and I are VERY proud of Derek and all of his accomplishments.
