Vinson Orthodontics Awards Scholarship to Clayton High School Senior

Clayton and Wake Forest Orthodontist Dr. Britt Vinson awards $500 college scholarship to area student Cassie Knittel.

Retaining relationships with peers and staying connected is extremely important to me as a recent high school graduate. Social media has improved the connection between peers.

    CLAYTON, NC, August 29, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Orthodontist Dr. Britt Vinson is proud to support his local community in Clayton and Wake Forest, NC. One way that Dr. Vinson gives back to his patients is through the Vinson Orthodontics Scholarship Program.

Every year, Dr. Vinson awards a $500 scholarship to one current or former patient of Vinson Orthodontics. This year's winner was Cassie Knittel, a graduating senior who will attend East Carolina University in the fall. Cassie was selected as the winner based on the merits of her essay titled, "What is the Impact of Social Media in Your Life?"

Here is a brief excerpt from Cassie's essay: "Retaining relationships with peers and staying connected is extremely important to me as a recent high school graduate. Social media has improved the connection between peers compared to generations in the past. One hindrance I believe previous generations have had was the inability to retain relationships made throughout their lives due to distance, inability to communicate over miles easily, and simply forgetting different peers. Social media has remedied this limitation."

To read the entire essay, head over to the Vinson Orthodontics website and visit the Vinson Orthodontics Scholarship Program page.

Cassie graduated from Clayton High School in 2017. During her time at Clayton High, she remained active in her school and community. Cassie served as secretary of HOSA and as a Key Club member. She received numerous awards and honors such as Outstanding Senior, NC Scholar, National Honor Society and National Technical Honor Society.

Cassie also volunteered at the Brian Center, Food Aid International, Red Barn Rescue and Hurricane Matthew Relief. In 2016, Cassie seized an opportunity to intern for the Pat McCrory Campaign Committee, gaining valuable experience in the political arena. She has also enjoyed participating in local mission trips organized by her church group. Cassie has also received scholarships from Johnston Health and the Four Oaks Bank Rotary Club.
