October: Tiffany Rowland
Tiffany Rowland has definitely been the model senior this school year. She has been crushing this virtual learning experience since the start. Not only has she made a 180 degree academic turn from last year, but she has recommitted herself to academic excellence. Her instructors have been wowed by her perseverance, dedication, and leadership. Tiffany participates in all her courses by answering and asking questions, motivating her classmates, and volunteering to present which adds to the value of the class. She is actively engaged during classroom discussions by having her camera on and participating in academic discourse. Not only is she on track to graduate on time, but she looks forward to attending college after graduation. Because she believes she is a social butterfly, interacting, socializing, and helping people is leading her to pursue a career in social work. Tiffany has definitely exemplified IDEA’s Guiding Five Principles: being prepared to learn, respecting others, showing responsibility, working well with others, and celebrating individual and collective successes.
