Student Story: Forest

Photo Large ForestForest Lee is just 18 years old and he’s about one semester away from getting an associate degree in general science.

He started taking dual credit classes at NVC while attending Vanguard High School in Boerne. After being home schooled for a year, he then came to Northwest Vista College. Forest hopes to pursue a career as an engineer in aerospace physics. After NVC, he’s thinking of transferring to either Texas Tech University or the University of Texas possibly in San Antonio or Austin.

“This is my third year here and I love NVC. It’s just a good school. The environment is very accepting. It’s growing quickly but it’s still capable of providing many activities for students.”

Forest is also president of the NVC Gamers Anonymous Club and takes on the duties of finding games for students to play and making sure students get to class. He said while his members love playing games, it’s also important they make good grades.

Forest is not alone in attending NVC. His twin brother, Hunter, also is pursuing the same career track and is also a part of the Gamers' club. He said one of the benefits of having a twin is that they both sign up for the same courses and that means they only have to buy one set of books.

But even with a twin brother, Forest is easy to spot because he’s typically zipping around campus on a Razor scooter.
