* Who is your personal hero and why?
"My personal hero is my mother, Lori Shultz. She is a single mom that has sacrificed so much to give me the best life possible. She has always encouraged me to chase my dreams and never give up on anything, and even though I might not be the richest, smartest, or most beautiful, that with hard work and determination, I can achieve anything. My mom has always told me that I have been given two hands, one to help myself, and another to help others. She has also taught me that I should always give more than I take in life."
The students in this weekly feature are selected by officials at their respective high schools. "Student Spotlight" recognizes students of good character who are involved in school or community activities such as athletics, clubs, student government and volunteer work.
