Housatonic student of the week

The Lakeville Journal congratulates the honorees of the student of the week program at Housatonic Valley Regional High School. The culture of Housatonic Valley Regional High School is rich with tradition. From its programs to the building itself, the school bestows the gift of education upon future generations and depends upon those students to pass that gift to subsequent classes. Were it not for student leaders such as Sharon’s Hunter Prindle-Nelson, this week’s student of the week, beloved programs and events would fade like our yellowing yearbooks.Hunter has not only helped preserve traditions such as the Turkey Olympics and Rotary, but her leadership has contributed to new ones such as the Senior Prom, Mr. Housatonic and our rejuvenated Student Government Association, of which she is the president. The SGA was convened to facilitate communication between students and faculty and to promote school clubs. This month, the club is sponsoring the Senior Prom, in which students bring together residents from the Geer Campus and Sharon Health Care Center for socializing (see story, Page A8).Additionally, Hunter was involved with this month’s Mr. Housatonic contest — all while serving as captain of the lacrosse team and preparing to attend the University of Rhode Island to pursue a degree in kinesiology. A knee injury last spring prompted Hunter to invesitgate this field, and she hopes to one day return to the Northwest Corner to practice.When asked about leadership, Hunter quickly noted that it is more about listening than giving orders, and her tenure at Housatonic indicates that she has a mature understanding of what it means to lead people. We can trust students like her to preserve our proud traditions and to inspire new ones for the 21st century and beyond.— Ian Strever, Assistant Prinicipal
