As part of my series interviewing the influential student leaders of the Texas Leadership Forum, I sat down with Claire Fagin from W.T. White High School here in Dallas, Texas. Claire is a member of the National Honor Society, a STARS Just Say YES mentor, a competitive all-district pole vaulter, and more. She is attending Pepperdine University and hopes to teach in Argentina when she graduates. We discussed how inspired she was by her coaches and how making connections and reaching out is important for both friends and business relationships.
