Student of the Week: John Sears '22
John Sears '22, St. Mary's House, with Ms. Lesiak
John is a math student of mine this year and also part of my Family Room. I have noticed that academically he is excelling greatly! In years past, he has told me he has struggled with time management. This year, he is doing a wonderful job in all of his classes, especially maintaining a good grade in his first ever Advanced Placement class. Also, John is one of kindest students I have ever met. He is a true gentleman, and I am blessed to have him as part of my Family Room.-Ms. Lesiak
