Weber High School
“Kaizen” is a Japanese word for “constant and never-ending improvements.” This is Kyler Whitehead. He is self-motivated and is committed to continually look for new ways to improve his performance in school and deepen his understanding of sports medicine. He has the attitude of learning because he wants to, not because he has to in order to get an excellent grade. He has an understanding of his strengths and weaknesses and is not afraid to leave his comfort zone and take risks to challenge his academics. Kyler has plans to become a physician (uncertain of specific field), and I can see him as Dr. Whitehead!!! ~Jamie James
Maria Montessori Academy
Owen exceeds academically and is willing to help others who struggle without being asked by a teacher. Owen is a good role model and leader. He consistently has one of the top scores on math tests. He shows respect to peers and staff. He participates regularly in class and asks questions when he doesn’t understand and others are afraid to ask. Owen worked really hard and was accepted into the Ritchey Science Fair. Owen is a bright student and is always willing to help fellow classmates. He is great at time management and always checks to make sure there isn’t missing work; he even turns in extra work. He is a model student and classmate to his peers. Beyond that, he is kind to others and shows empathy. He is a good person, and we are proud to have him represent our school and community.

Livee, while having the pleasure of working with you for just a quarter in 2D art, you set a positive tone by participating well and continuously setting a high standard for yourself in all that you do. You ask questions, are receptive to feedback, always stretch yourself, and try to further develop your skills and creativity while producing high quality work. I thoroughly enjoy seeing you grow as an artist by exploring and further developing your own style through stretching your skills. You envision, take risks, persist, solve problems, and communicate in your own authentic way. You are a joy to have in class! I know great things will come as you share your creative talent!

She has had a display of her artwork in Orion’s Student Arts & Humanities Cultural Center this year and has taken art class every year. Imani has had several teachers and staff members request one of her art pieces. Imani is also an excellent student. She is currently taking several courses at Weber Innovations and Orion, and she has had a high GPA all through her junior high years. Imani is sensitive, thoughtful, caring, creative, a great friend, and has a beautiful, contagious smile. She has a bright future ahead of her and she is amazing. Congratulations, Imani!
