WHS September Students of the Month

September Students of the Month 
2014 – 2015

JULIA POST – Julia, a senior, has been a student in our Spanish Program since freshmen year.  Julia is currently taking AP Spanish Language and Culture and is doing an excellent job in this course.  What separates Julia from the rest is her genuine interest and desire to learn not only the mechanics of the language, but also the cultural intricacies of it.  Julia also makes a difference because she looks for opportunities to learn more and to put into practice her language skills outside of school.  She plans to continue on to college to study International Business, a career that will allow Julia to apply her experiences in the four years she was exposed to the best the World Language Spanish Program has to offer.

BERNARD FREDERIC – Bernard, a senior, is currently enrolled in Design and Engineering Seminar.  He chose to take the course twice because he has an interest in robotics.  Last year, Bernard entered the robotics VEX competition with a team and plans on entering the competition again this year.  Bernard’s dedication towards design and engineering needs to be recognized because it takes a lot of time and preparation to be competitive.  Among other strengths, Bernard has excellent communication skills.

LINDA BUFFINGTON – Linda, a senior, has been a Captain of the Tennis Team for three years.  She is a very devoted student not only to tennis but to her academics as well.   Linda has been playing some very challenging matches this year at second singles and has shown determination to do her best each match.  She played in the county tournament this past weekend beating her first opponent, and played an excellent match in the second to lose to one of the top 2nd singles players in the county.  Linda is an excellent role model and leader for all of her peers.

RYAN SEMUS – Ryan, a senior, is the Captain of the Cross Country Team and has shown an unbelievable level of leadership.  His commitment to the sport, as well as his school work, is extremely obvious to all of his team mates.  Ryan's ability to always give his teammates advice in a very constructive way also sets him apart.
