Standout Student: West Lutheran’s Kelsey Latterell
Today’s standout student comes from West Lutheran High School in Plymouth. Kelsey Latterell carries a better than 4.0 grade point average and is an active participant in physics class.
“Anytime I run into trouble or somethings not making sense to me I’ve never been afraid to ask questions,” said Kelsey, who is a senior. ” And that’s probably what I can attribute a lot of success to, is just being comfortable with reaching out to teachers.”
Instructor Sarah Gierach has taught Kelsey in several classes.
“She’s super conscientious just about everything,” said Gierach. “I mean you saw that today when you observed the class. Just every little bit. “Am I doing this part right, is this correct?”
Gierach says when the faculty brainstormed who would be a great standout student, Kelsey immediately came to mind.
“She just is so consistently amazing in so many understated ways all around that she was one of the first people that jumped into our brains,” said Gierach.
Besides classes, Kelsey is enjoying her second year with the burgeoning hand bell choir program at West Lutheran. She’s also president of National Honors Society, vice president of Student Council, co-editor of the yearbook, and coordinator of the school blood drive. She works backstage with school productions, stepping into the role of stage manager last year.
Kelsey Latterell hopes to go to college and study medicine. An activity called career corners at West Lutheran exposed Kelsey to the medical field.
