The WHS Art, Music, Spanish, and Physical Education Departments would like to nominate Mallorie Vissers for student of the month. Mallorie has been a member of the band all throughout high school. In addition to all the hard work and dedication she shows as an instrumentalist Mallorie has taken a leadership position in choreographing and instructing the colorguard routines since the spring of her Freshman year. She has been extremely organized and responsible with this task. This year while everything is very different in the instrumental music department Mallorie has been an exemplary student encouraging all of those around her with her genuinely positive outlook. It brought a ton of spirit to the band room when Mallorie suggested the idea for having a bucket decorating contest during homecoming week. She also contributes enthusiastically to our composition unit. While Mallorie has always been a conscientious student who gives her very best effort, this year has shown that even in changing and sometimes challenging circumstances Mallorie continues to bring her best every day. In Physical Education, Mallorie has demonstrated phenomenal leadership skills. From the minute she arrives to class she begins to take on responsibilities of helping with set up, preparing herself for the lesson, kindly and cheerfully speaking to all of her classmates. She displays an energy that is positive and contagious. Mallorie enjoys being challenged and is determined to face and overcome each one of them. She has a healthy competitive spirit balanced by joy when successful, yet humble, sincerely congratulatory and great at praising the accomplishments of others. It has been such a pleasure and blessing to watch this young lady light up the world the way that she does. Mallorie comes to AP Spanish class ready to learn. She is very positive and challenges herself daily in class. When given an assignment or project she goes above and beyond the requirements. When she doesn’t understand a concept without hesitation seeks extra help for a further explanation. She has grown so much during her years of taking spanish. The class taught Spanish I lessons and her game and lesson were thoroughly planned out, and the students enjoyed learning through the creative lesson. Mallorie would like to become a teacher. Her compassion, caring demeanor and willingness to help others will make her an excellent teacher. Mallorie works as a Student Assistant in the Special Education classroom. She assists the students with their classwork, reads to them, and spends time with them. Mallorie is a very positive person who enjoys spending her time with the students and they very much enjoy their time with her. Her friendly and calm demeanor is also very appreciated by the staff in the Special Education classroom. We look forward to watching Mallorie continue to grow. She strives for excellence. Mallorie, keep up the good work!
