My pick for Student of the Week is Maureen Meyer.
Maureen is a student in my English 10 class and she is also the business manager for the yearbook staff. Maureen impressed me when she was an eighth-grader on the yearbook staff two years ago. Now she has returned to take on one of the most difficult and important tasks — keeping track of ad revenue and laying out the ad pages. Maureen took on this duty with a partner at the start of the school year; when her partner moved to a new school, Maureen quietly assumed the whole job without complaint. She helps her distracted advisor keep track of who has sold which ads and how much money we have raised.
In English class, Maureen is a thorough reader and a graceful, thoughtful writer. She is often one of the last students to turn in a test, not because she is unfamiliar with the material, but because she just can’t stop writing! She’s also a talented actress, as all who saw her as the conniving Cassie in “The Tragicomedy of Julia Caesar” last spring may attest.
Beyond her scholastic and theatrical accomplishments, Maureen is a kind-hearted person and a good friend to others. She is an asset to Monroe.
