Student of the Week: December 9, 2020

Congratulations to SMS Alpine’s Caroline Roy ’21 for being recognized as the SMS Student of the Week!
Since returning to SMS in the fall, Caroline Roy ’21 has demonstrated what it means to pursue excellence in academics and athletics. Her teachers and coaches are continually impressed by her efforts across all facets of SMS life and her commitment to overcoming personal challenges. 
“In class, she has been super proactive and upbeat,” said teacher Melissa Oliva during her Student of the Week presentation on Wednesday. “Her submissions have been high quality and timely. She also contributes meaningful comments to class discussions.”
“She is determined to do a good job,” continued one of her coaches. “She has adapted to the SMS routine very well recently.”
Caroline is also a lovely and caring person. She is quick to offer a helping hand and goes out of her way to check-in with staff who could use a boost. She is quick to provide a friendly "hello,” even to teachers and coaches who no longer have her as a student. 
Caroline’s current coaches say that she has an incredible natural ability on the snow, and, according to Coach Harlow, she is one of the best road trip DJs he has ever encountered. 
“What I admire most about this student of the week is that you can always tell how she is feeling,” concluded Oliva.  “If she is confused about a topic, she isn’t afraid to reach out and ask for help. This is a skill I know will allow her to be successful after she graduates from SMS this year.”
“She also is always willing to tell you how it is. When her name is pronounced wrong, she will swiftly but kindly remind you it’s not Caroline; it’s CAROLEEEN.” 
Congratulations to this week’s student of the week, Caroline Roy.
