The first semester has ended, and I’m sure the students and teachers are grateful that the week of finals is over. I know I am!
Now the students can begin their new schedules and start afresh.
For us seniors, it is the last semester to walk the hallowed halls of Glenwood Springs High School as students. It is a sad thought that we will be leaving, but graduation is also one of the most exciting and anticipated events in our near future.
I’m sure the time will pass much too quickly, and agonizingly slowly.
Our two celebrated Students of the Week are Rick LeFavor and Abby Willman. Congratulations to these outstanding students of GSHS!
Rick LeFavor, a senior at GSHS, was nominated by our librarian Mrs. Crisp. Rick completed several woodwork projects for the library, including the installation of a beautiful hand-made book drop. All of his work was much appreciated and adds to both the functionality and aesthetics of the library.
Rick moved here from Denver four years ago. He enjoys watching movies with his parents and his sister, a freshman at GSHS.
Rick likes working on his computer, hanging out with his friends, and taking advantage of the winter snow. Rick also keeps busy with his after school job, and plans on a degree in management. His favorite quote is, “It does not matter what you do in life as long as you’re in good health and happy.”
Abby Willman, also a senior at Glenwood, was nominated by Mrs. Whiting for all of her hard work and commitment to the Future Business Leaders of America.
Abby is the western Colorado FBLA District Vice President. She is in charge of organizing and setting up all events for the Regional Competition on Feb. 9. It will be held in Grand Junction at the Two Rivers Convention Center, where 600 students from western Colorado are expected to attend to compete.
She and the other state leaders are planning the FBLA statewide competition in which 2,500 students will attend. Mrs. Whiting is very proud of Abby and is sure the competition will run smoothly with all of her careful planning.
Abby has lived her entire life in Glenwood with her parents, sister Caroline, and brother Zac. Her older brother, Justin, also lives in Glenwood.
Abby is also involved in mock trial, soccer, Climate Committee, and the Governance Council. Abby was a part of last year’s state winning mock trial team. One of her favorite experiences in high school has been the National Mock Trial Competition in New Orleans. There, the team proved their talent and skill to the nation by placing second overall.
Abby knows from experience that it is important to begin forming lifelong habits early in life. Many seniors would agree.
