Tiffani Pittman: Joining Her Father in the Lion Legacy

 Pittman is a cohort in Carroll's Augustine Scholars Program, meaning upon application, she demonstrated an exceptional academic promise, qualifying for honors-level courses in all disciplines, and indicated a willingness to grow in fellowship with other exceptional students. As a member of this program, she attended Auggie Week, "I was allowed to warm up to my new school environment." Her choice to attend Carroll was solidified because she believed in its rigorous academic course load. "I knew Carroll would be able to challenge myself and my academic abilities," she explained. The Augustine Scholar program "would be able to push me and uphold my high academic standards." This summer, Pittman also was a member of a summer track team. This exceptional athlete concluded her summer track season at the Junior Olympics regional track meet in Greensboro, North Carolina. She hopes to pursue the sport at Carroll and continue into college, hopefully becoming a professional athlete.

The apple didn't fall far from the tree, Eric Pittman was the team captain of his basketball team at Carroll. He remembers his first pep rally, "as we came down the stairs from the second floor, we could hear a rumble come from behind the doors in the school lobby..there was a group of students with microphones in their hand leading chants that got the roo into an unbelievable frenzy. That day all the freshmen learned a little something about CARROLL PRIDE!" Pittman looks forward to sharing that same pride with his daughter. "As her time grows," he explained, "I am sure we will have a wonderful time sharing stories about life on Harewood Road." He recalled an important social justice lesson he received from the late Dick Gregory, "Over the years, I have learned how different and powerful that day was for a high school student." Many memorable moments made it impossible for Pittman to stay away, he regularly attends homecomings, football games, basketball games, and participates in the United Way Program.

His advice to his daughter: Enjoy every moment of your time at Carroll, because it goes so fast.
