Dunwoody High senior Ariel Lawrence commits to college

College is always a daunting subject but for Ariel Lawrence, she knows where she’s headed for the next four years of her life.

The 2020 Dunwoody High senior announced her collegiate intentions Sunday evening on Twitter.

“The day everyone has been waiting for has come,” Lawrence wrote on Twitter. “I want to thank God for blessing me with my athletic abilities and for the opportunity to compete at the next level. I want to thank my mom and dad, Leon, for molding me into the young lady that I’ve become and for pushing me everyday to become a better athlete and person. They helped me find the lightness in the dark. They’re my biggest inspiration and motivation. I want to thank all coaches for helping me perfect my craft and become better and better at what I do.

“I want to thank my friends and family for all the love and support and for helping me keep going,” she continued. “I especially want to thank Coach Pete and Coach Cowper for blessing me with the opportunity to compete for their program. They chose me and I chose them. I’m definitely going to make you guys proud, the team proud, the school proud and my whole city proud. With that being said, I’m going to spend my next four years furthering my academic and athletic career at the University of Louisville.”

Congratulations to Lawrence for taking her next step in her career.
