Providence Student Juggles Academics, Demanding Schedule
This week’s standout student is one busy kid. Tommy Wehmann is accomplishing plenty at Providence Academy, despite his hectic schedule.
“I try to organize my time as well as I can,” Wehmann said. “It’s definitely a struggle just being involved in so much.”
From academics to athletics, Wehmann is constantly on the go. He is a captain on the baseball, cross country and hockey teams at Providence Academy, and he somehow juggles athletics with a demanding academic schedule that includes being part of the school band. Wehmann is also one of the founders of the student investment club at Providence.
“It is a lot of work,” Wehmann said. “A lot of late nights, but I like it. I like the challenge of being involved, having a busy schedule.”
Whether he is on the diamond, the ice or in the classroom, Wehmann excels at everything.
“After a hard day of school, maybe some tests, there’s definitely a sense of relief going to practice and letting off a little steam,” said Wehmann.
“It’s awesome, but also prepares him I think really well for life after high school,” said Michael Plucinski, one of Wehmann’s teachers at Providence Academy.
Wehmann will soon be focused on college. He plans to go into the field of mechanical engineering with the University of Texas high on his college list.
“If he chooses to go in the science world he could make the next big discovery, or be a part of an engineering project that could help change the world,” Plucinski said.
