I am Matt Poirier from Chesapeake, VA.  I graduated with honors from the International Baccalaureate Program at Oscar Smith High School.  While a student there, I played varsity boys’ volleyball and swam for the varsity swim team.  I also was a member of the varsity boys soccer team and earned 1st team All-Conference honors my senior season.  I enjoyed my memberships in the National Honor Society and the Math National Honor Society.  At Ferrum, I am majoring in history and have been a four-year member of the Men’s Soccer Team.
