Student of the Semester: Addison Peters

By Rachel Callahan and Ashlynn Peters

Every semester, junior high and high school teachers collectively decide on students who have embodied the Wildcat spirit, ones who are hard-working, passionate, and driven to succeed in their academics. Eighth-grader Addison Peters has exhibited these traits and has earned the accolade of “Student of the Semester” for the latter half of the year. 

Addison credits her sisters as her biggest role models. “I have grown up and learned from them. They have always done their best, and this motivates and pushes me to do my best just like them.” Addison’s three older sisters are nothing short of academic excellence, and there is no doubt she has taken after them. “I have always wanted to achieve good grades throughout every subject, and I always strive myself to the best of my abilities.”

Addison believes that her “strongest trait as a student is being responsible because this allows me to exceed in and complete all of my work to the best of my ability. Also, I take pride in the fact that if someone asks me to do something, I always follow through with my word. I have worked to build this trait by always doing what needs to get done even with a busy schedule.” Affirming Addison, Mr. Dro noted “her wheelhouse is lots of hard work.” Mrs. Leali describes Addison as “talented, kind, and a positive energy to all around her.”

As for her favorite class, Addison nominates Honors Algebra 1 and Mrs. Crawford. “I have always enjoyed this subject each year. I also think the math teacher, Mrs. Crawford has been an amazing teacher.” Addison believes a “good teacher breaks down and teaches a lesson very thoroughly to the entire class. I think a good teacher also listens to students’ needs, and if kids need extra help with a lesson, the teacher will make sure everyone understands before moving on.” Addison sets the standards high, yet Mrs. Crawford goes above and beyond.

Apart from her stellar academics, Addison manages to excel in danceline and volleyball. Being able to juggle both school and academics is no easy feat, yet Addison does it with precision and grace!
