Noted Unitarian theologian, William Ellery Channing, is credited with saying, "The more a person analyzes his inner self, the more insignificant he seems to himself. This is the first lesson of wisdom. Let us be humble, and we will become wise. Let us know our weakness, and it will give us power." Our honoree this month has been characterized by students as helpful, smart, genuine, organized, funny, devoted and humble. Mrs. Murphy has found this individual to, "always be in a happy state of mind, inquisitive, and helpful to other students. Her steady work ethic brings her success and will continue to do so in her future." Ms. Stoll was happy to experience working with this student recently preparing for homecoming describing her as, "a force in our hallway, organized with a witty sense of humor that I appreciate." Mrs. Filios describes this student as, "extremely bright, yet does not put on any airs about it. Going to great lengths to cultivate her interests, she has taken online courses to master subjects she finds fascinating and spends countless hours after school pursing her passion for dance." This student thrives in the performing arts and who better to shine the light on her talents than Ms. Carroll who said, "She is highly motivated and driven to excel in both academics and in co-curricular activities. She is a talented dancer, actress, and singer who enhances her natural abilities by working hard. She does not take her talents for granted – she aims to improve in any and every way she can. She is mature and sensible, responsible and enthusiastic." A member of National Honor Society, California Scholarship Federation, and spring musical, congratulations to junior, Jaclyn Ayala.
