Nixon offered some advice for students who want to follow in her footsteps.

"It starts on the first day of high school. Focus on your classwork, your tests, your homework, your essays, your grades, and it can happen that way," Nixon told WSB.

Nixon's principal described her as both humble and a hard worker.

She has until May 1 to decide which college or university she's going to attend.
