CLASS OF 2022

    Welcome, Falcons! My name is Allie Riegel and I am a rising junior at Briar Woods. I am honored to be the 2019-2020 President of the Briar Woods Freshman Transition Committee (FTC). In addition to being a part of FTC, I’m a member of the Briar Woods Varsity Swim Team and Spanish Club, and in past years, I’ve been a part of Color Guard and DECA.

    The FTC has such a special spot in my heart and I’m really looking forward to working with the Class of 2023 next year! This committee has given me so much, such as amazing friendships, a boost in confidence, as well as leadership skills. Throughout the year, I enjoy getting to know the new freshmen and watching everyone grow into another amazing class here at Briar Woods!

    CLASS OF 2022

    Hi; my name is Maya! I am a rising junior at Briar Woods High School, and I the secretary officer for the Freshman Transition Committee (FTC) this upcoming year. I enrolled at Briar Woods as a freshman and prior to before that I lived in 7 countries throughout Europe and Asia.

    The reason I joined FTC was because I understand it can be difficult to acclimate in a new environment and I wanted to help make it an easier transition for freshmen going into high school. That is why I am also a part of the Falcon Connect Leaders. I help show new students around Briar Woods and meet with them to eat lunch if they want to. FTC has been working very hard trying to make the transition to Briar Woods easy for the freshmen. I can’t wait to get to know the new freshman class and work with my group of mentees and all of you!
