Senior Spotlight: Claire Brittle

Mary-Edith Cox, Social Media Chair

Although she has only graced the halls of Rocky Mount Academy for a year now after transferring from Greenfield School in Wilson, Claire Brittle has definitely become a key part of the class of 2020. Claire’s sarcasm, independence, and expressive attitude make her stand out from the rest of us! She is not afraid to tell the truth and stand up for what she believes in, which shows how prepared she is for college!

Claire is going into her second and final year at RMA, and she has definitely made the most of her time here from academics to athletics. Regarding Claire’s stellar time in the classroom, she challenges herself with her class load, as well as taking classes in the arts department. This year she is taking Ecology, Yearbook, English, AFM, Ceramics, and American Culture. Not only does she thrive in the classroom, however: in the spring, you can find Claire on the soccer field with the rest of the varsity team!


With her determination for great success after high school and college, Claire is going to leave RMA and go do amazing things with her life! Rocky Mount Academy will most definitely not be the same without the unbelievable Claire Brittle!
