Lindan with her parents Staci and Tim

Oliver featured in Potential Magazine


Lindan Oliver, a student at Tallassee High School, is honored as a Teen Spotlight in Potential Magazine for excelling in her academics and leadership.

Lindan is a member of the National Honor Society, Mu Alpha Theta, the varsity basketball team, and the Pride of Tallassee Marching Band at Tallassee High School. She shared, “My favorite part about attending THS is playing basketball and being in the marching band.” In ninth grade, she received the Joe Sewell Memorial Award, an award established to recognize outstanding high school athletes in Elmore County who represent the ideals of Christian leadership. When asked to share her best advice for an entering high school freshman, Lindan answered, “I would advise them to work hard in whatever they are doing and enjoy the short time they are in high school.”

Potential Magazine is a multimedia resource for parents of college-bound teenagers. In each issue, high achieving students in the 7th-12th grade are featured and entered to win the $500 "Reach Your Potential" scholarship awarded in January and May.

Teens are recommended by their school or community leaders for excelling in one or more of the following areas: academics, business, leadership, philanthropy, overcoming adversity, citizenship and community service, athletics, and the arts. Potential Magazine's advisory board chooses teens to feature in each issue and select the scholarship winner in May from each of the finalists.
