April Senior Spotlight

senior spotlight april 2017

The Senior Spotlight winner for the month of April is Jessica Wenberg. Jessica is the daughter of Scott and Karen Wenberg. During her high school career, Jessica was involved in Speech, Scholastic Bowl, Band, Jazz Band, Marching Band, Pit, Musicals, Choir, Madrigals, Thespians, SSA, FCCLA, NHS, Volleyball, and Softball. She was also a drum major in the band.

Her future plans are to attend Illinois State University, study nursing, and become a nurse anesthetist.

Here are a few thoughts from Jessica’s teachers. Mrs. Dennis says that Jessica is “a strong leader in the classroom. She mentors the younger students, always has a positive attitude, and is ready to work daily. She is talented, kind, and has a great sense of humor.” Mrs. Valiente agrees that Jessica “can always be counted on to smile and say hello when she sees you. When I had her in class, she was a hard worker and went above and beyond to help her peers. She also has a fantastic voice and wowed me at the Spring Musical!” Mrs. Leveille says that Jessica is “super nice and has an awesome singing voice!” Mr. Brand appreciates that Jessica “always takes the initiative to step up where others may hesitate. She exceeds expectations before expectations have been established.” Ms. Faletti says that Jessica “is a leader. She sets a great example for all students as she is someone who is not only involved in many extracurricular activities but also is a top performer in her class academically.” Mr. Horton is impressed by Jessica’s “self-motivated approach to learning. She is inquisitive in her approach to wisdom and she approaches academic problems by drawing from her extensive understanding of multiple disciplines. She has an ever-growing appreciation for and understanding of multiple cultures and is in the process of becoming multi-lingual in Spanish as well as German. Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, she abstains from wearing Crocs, which I think speaks well to her character (an inside joke!).” Mr. Wolf agrees that Jessica is “an old soul who isn’t afraid of being herself. She is a very humble and caring person who is always willing to lend a helping hand to a fellow classmate in need.” Mrs. Bugg believes that Jessica is “responsible, mature, trustworthy, talented, and kind. But most of all, I appreciate her initiative to find solutions to problems without being asked. She took it upon herself to repair a CPR manikin that had been broken for three years that I never thought could be fixed.” Mrs. Benoit believes that Jessica is “a kind, dedicated student striving to do her best. One of her biggest strengths is to think critically. She pays attention with great focus and goes the extra mile to study the details of the concepts that need more time.”

As a final thought, Jessica’s advice to younger students is, “Always be confident in everything you do.” In addition, she says that “life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.”

On behalf of the teachers and staff at RCHS, we would like to congratulate Jessica Wenberg as our April winner of the “Senior Spotlight”.
