The Senior Spotlight winner for the month of November is Carson Anderson. Carson is the son of Chuck and Sara Anderson. During his high school career, Carson has been involved in Band, Chorus, Madrigals, Fall Play, Spring Musical, NHS, Student Council, Math Team, Baseball, Speech, SSA, RC Chatter, Thespians, and he was a class officer.
His future plans are to study middle level education at Illinois State University.
Here are a few thoughts from Carson’s teachers. Mrs. Valiente says that she can “always count on Carson to smile and give a chipper hello in the hallway. He makes my day!” Mrs. Bugg says that Carson is, “thoughtful, funny, smart, talented, and kind. I knew from his freshman year that he was going to be something special…and he is! I want to get an autographed picture of him before he graduates so I can say I knew him before he was famous!!” Mr. Brand adds that Carson “has a big heart and a humble demeanor. He always seems to find the good in any given situation.” Mr. Roth enjoys Carson’s “interesting sense of humor. He is able to take a joke as well as tell one, so he gets along well with most other students. However, he also knows when to be serious, which is important. He makes class fun.” Mrs. Dennis believes that Carson is, “a strong leader. He is compassionate and mature beyond his years.” Ms. Brittingham says that Carson is, “a skilled and entertaining individual and actor. He is also an incredible leader and shows immense dedication to Reed-Custer.” Mrs. Johnston adds that, “Carson is one of the nicest most responsible teens that I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. Carson is not afraid of hard work and when he says that something will get done, I know that it will get done. He is also a very positive person, and he genuinely cares about those around him.” Mr. Newsom adds, “Carson is one of those students who exemplifies what it means to be a “leader” in school. He is involved in numerous groups, organizations, and activities. He is always willing to volunteer whatever is asked of him. And in the classroom, he is respectful, responsible, and dependable.”
As a final thought, Carson’s advice to younger students is, “Don’t be afraid to try.”
On behalf of the teachers and staff at RCHS, we would like to congratulate Carson Anderson as our November winner of the “Senior Spotlight”.
