Student of the Week: Preston Davis '23 and Destiny Wright '22

By Carroll High School
Destiny Wright '22 and Preston Davis '23: Students of the Week January 13, 2022

Destiny Wright '22, Baltimore House and Preston Davis '23, Mercy House with Mr. Chris Ochs

Both students went well above and beyond what was needed in their clean-up efforts in Study Hall and actually ended up cleaning the cafeteria as well as the hallway between the cafeteria and the gym.

All this was done on their own.  I did not ask them to do it.  They saw a need and a call to action and acted upon it.

To me, these efforts are symbolic of what a Patriot is and should be.

-Mr. Chris Ochs
