Virginia Wooten
Position: My position is Treasurer! I am in charge of collecting and counting all of the money that is involved in Media Office. Yay counting! And money!


What are you most looking forward to this year? This year I am most looking forward to all the Senior Festivities! I've been waiting all of high school for them, so what is not to be excited about? I'm excited for everything from Senior Pictures, finally turning in my applications to schools, the NYC trip, to graduation at the end of May!


What is your favorite part about Media Office? My favorite part about Media Office has to be how we get to connect with people, whether it is my classmates in Media Office, Pre-K students, new teachers, to my favorite faculty members. I love how I get the opportunity to write for my school about the variety of people I love!


How many years have you been at RMA? This is going to be my thirteenth year at RMA! I wouldn't want to have spent my life at any other school. :)


Find out more about Virginia below: 

  1. Who is your role model?

Probably my Grandma. She has the biggest heart out of anyone I know! My Mom and Dad too, they each have the best qualities of people. On a less serious note, Queen Elizabeth II. She is the ultimate goal.


  1. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live and why? 

Well I think I would have 7 rental houses and rotate every few weeks to the different locations. I would have one in Tarboro (God’s country), Charleston, New York City, Jackson Hole, London, Paris, and some remote town in Bali. I have to get the most out of the world while I’m still alive, right?


  1. If you had to watch one movie for the rest of your life, what would it be? 

I ADORE Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.


  1. Where do you see yourself in 10 years? 

Hopefully really happy.


  1. Favorite class at RMA? 

I’ll always have a special place in my heart for Dr. K’s 6th Grade Science Class. We learned everything from how the Earth formed, to how a throw a javelin like a caveman. So basically all the life skills you need!


  1. What is your favorite quote? 

"Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever." -- Mahatma Gandhi


  1. What is something most people don't know about you? 

I used to own a pet peacock named Raj!


  1. If you could grow up in any decade, what would it be? 

Definitely the 80’s, and that would probably be due to Mr. Bueller and his friends. And Stranger Things. I swear some of the best movies and shows are 80’s based!


  1. If you could have any job in the world, what would it be? 

Probably some kind of marketing position for National Geographic. I could be creative, interact with people, and explore the planet! That is everything I’m passionate about in one career. :)


  1. If you were stranded on an island, what three things would you bring?

A router, an iPhone with a lot of storage, and some kind of power unit with a charging station for an iPhone X. I could call people to bring me food, pick me up, or bring friends over! Plus I could listen to music 24/7.


In Addition: 

I am President/Founder of the Photography Club and Publicity Chair/Founder of Spanish Honors Society. I've played soccer for all of high school. Some of my hobbies are reading, cooking, fitness, photography, and travel. I've grown up on a small farm in Tarboro and I've spent most of my childhood outside! I love my small town more than anything because of the history, people, and the sense of community I have there.
