I am Franck Simo, proud recipient of the Barbara Aaron Triangle Award in 2011. I am from the 2012 Senior Class of South Lakes High School and currently studying at Wheeling Jesuit University, located in Wheeling, WV.
I moved to the US in 2008 from Cameroon (West Africa) to live with my mother and to most of all, cease the opportunity that this country has offered throughout its history to immigrants that want to better their lives. That opportunity for me has been to obtain a good education and to freely enjoy the fruit of my labor and as of today, I am still working towards that goal.
