Our Student of the Week, Abigail Emricson is a senior at Woodstock High School. She is the daughter of Valerie Emricson, Woodstock. “Abigail’s focus on self-improvement and dedication to helping her peers makes her an important part of my career writing class. I have appreciated the effort she puts into revision of her essays and how, by example, she raises the standards in the course, both for herself and for her peers,” said one of her teachers, Mrs. Shaffer.
In school, Abigail plays varsity basketball. She also played volleyball freshman though junior years. Abigail has been on the high honor roll her entire high school career and has been a member of the National Honor Society the past two years.
When asked who inspires her, Abigail replied, “My coach, Jen Nichols, motivates me to always try my best and to always stay positive, not only in basketball, but in the real world.”
When asked why she feels successful, Abigail replied, “I feel that I am successful because I have so many people around me who help me stay determined and motivated to work hard and to always do my best.”
