STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT

Students of the Week

STUDENT: Terron Oglesby

NOMINATED BY: Ms. Musacchio

Terron Oglesby is a thoughtful and helpful student willing to volunteer his study hall time to help me in Guidance especially during busy PSAT prep. His assistance is always greatly appreciated! Thank you Terron!


STUDENT: Dorathy Nelson

NOMINATED BY: Mr. Pecchia

​Dorathy “Dora” Nelson is a cheerful, compassionate,considerate, empathetic,kind, and polite young woman who is a new member of EHTHS’s student body. She is an inspiration to me, as well as to her peers, for her hard work and insightfulness in the classroom. Although this alone is enough to merit her selection as SOTW, Dora did not hesitate this week when she saw two of her peers in need and helped them navigate the multiple challenges of being new to the school and the country. The characteristics that Dora exhibits through her words and actions is why this leader should be selected as Student of the Week.

Mr. Dannenhauer's Students Learn About Muscle Fatigue
