Jackie Chang Putting the Ball

Jackie Chang, Class of ‘10

Upon graduating from NDP in 2010, Jackie was recruited as a varsity athlete to the University of North Carolina, where she played on the women’s golf team all four years. After graduating from UNC with degrees in Anthropology and Global Studies, She joined the AmeriCorps VISTA program, working in the education sector for a year. She is a 2019 graduate of the University of North Carolina School of Law, and will begin practicing as an attorney in Atlanta, GA this coming fall! 

"Notre Dame Preparatory definitely played a significant role in my post-high school success! Not only did NDP prepare me to take on college-level courses, but it also gave me the platform to develop my skills in athletics as well. As a student-athlete, it was very important that I had access to good coaches, facilities, and competition - but it was also important to me that I prepare myself academically for the future. NDP gave me the solid foundation that I needed to excel both on the course and in the classroom."
