The student of the year is selected based on academic achievement, leadership skills, character, and service to the school and community. This year’s student of the year is an eighth grader who strives for academic excellence. In addition to taking a regular middle school course load, she is taking two high school credit classes, Algebra I and Spanish I, has a straight “A” average, participates in school sports basketball and tennis, is a member of the Student Council, and takes dance classes and recently tried out for the Wando Dance Team! She is a model student and role model for her fellow schoolmates. We are really going to miss her next year. Congratulations Katie!
