Student of the Week
October 18, 2017
Paiton Wood is a sophomore at Woodstock North High School. Paiton is the daughter of Michael and Jennifer Wood, Wonder Lake.
“Paiton exhibits the Thunder Way by having PRIDE in all that she does in the classroom with academics, in cheerleading and in the community. Paiton was instrumental in decorating our stands with students’ cancer ribbons during our Sept. 22 pink out game for breast cancer awareness,” said one of her teachers.
In school, Paiton is on the honor roll and a member of the varsity cheer team, and participates in track and field. She also plans on being a Best Buddy and volunteering for Woodstock Christmas Clearing House.
When asked who inspires her, Paiton replied, “The person who inspires me is my cousin Sophie. She always works hard to achieve her goals and never gives up even when she is faced with difficulties.”
When asked why she feels successful, Paiton replied, “I feel successful because I work hard at everything I do. I take pride in my work and always strive to accomplish my goals.”
