Wa-Hi’s Go BLUE Students of the Month are nominated and selected based on their hard work and motivation in and out of the classroom.
September’s students were Sydney Harris, Matthew Delarosa, Regan Braman, Iris Hernandez, Michael Whitney, Brandon Snider, Anthony Huerta, Kyra Hartley and Adan Martinez.
Freshman Sydney Harris was nominated by Mrs. Curtice. We asked her what her favorite thing about Wa-Hi is: “I like that it’s so friendly, it is such a great environment,” Harris said.
Senior Matthew Delarosa was nominated by both Mr. Larson and Ms. Buttenhoff. Delarosa is involved in both FFA and JROTC.
Junior Regan Braman was nominated by Mrs. Glaesar. We asked her what advice she would have for students who are struggling in classes: “They should not be afraid to ask for help, because there are many other students in the same boat,” Braman said.
Sophomore Iris Hernandez was also nominated by Mrs. Glaesar. We asked her what teacher she would choose to have for the rest of her high school education: “Mrs. Payne, for sure. She's super nice, and I learned a lot from her,” Hernandez said.
Junior Kyra Hartley was nominated by Ms. Meliah. We asked her what advice she has for students who are struggling to make friends: “Go to all Wa-Hi events. Trust me, it works,” Hartley said.
Sophomore Michael Whitney was nominated by Mr. Larson. We asked him what he’d say to someone having a hard time keeping up in school: “You’re not the only one. If you find someone who’s struggling, make sure to give them your advice, and they can give you advice, too. Two minds are better than one,” Whitney said.
Freshman Brandon Snider was nominated by Miss Moreno. We asked him what his favorite part of Wa-Hi is: “All of the amazing activities and opportunities that Wa-Hi offers to every student,” Snider said.
Junior Adan Martinez was nominated by Ms. Bertinelli and Ms. Butenhoff. We asked him what advice he’d give to someone who’s new to Wa-Hi: ”If you are struggling, don't be afraid to go to a teacher or counselor for help getting back on track,” Martinez said.
Senior Anthony Huerta was nominated by Mrs. Pritcher. We asked him what his favorite part about Wa-Hi is: “Everyone is super nice and friendly, including the staff,” Huerta said.
Congratulations to everyone nominated for Student of the Month this September. Keep up the good work, Wa-Hi.
