This week’s Student Spotlight is senior Donovan Cartwright. Donovan has been recognized by Coach Clack.
Here is what Coach had to say regarding Donovan, "Donovan Cartwright is a true quiet storm. Not a very vocal person but he’s a hurricane in regards to leadership. He's the quarterback of our back to back State Championship football team, and being a part of the National Honor Society and maintaining a GPA of 3.4 during his 4 years at Howard, yeah that’s what you call a Howard Hurricane! Showering down his student-athlete success on the underclassman, now they have a great role model to look up to. It has been a true pleasure to be a part of his development and I expect his STORM to continue at the next level."
Way to go, Donovan! We are proud of you!
