“When I was matched with Ann in fourth grade, I had grown up with some difficulties in my life,” said Megan Galloway. “It was my thing that I went to every week, where I was like, ‘Oh, I get to see Ann!’”
That was seven years ago last February. Galloway, now 17, is a student at Haywood Early College and will likely graduate from the program a year early before going on to study marine biology at UNC Wilmington.
“She was always like, the beacon of light that helped me get through sometimes. She’s just really kind, and she’s changed my life in so many ways,” said Galloway. “I don’t think I would’ve made it without her.”
