Student of the Week for the week of: April 24~28, 2017
Makayla Cantu is a Freshman at Horizon High School’s “Student of the Week”. She is the daughter of Josh and Wendy Cantu of Evanston, WY. As a Freshman this year, Makayla enjoys photography, loves children, and enjoys babysitting. Her current academic goal is to pass all of her classes since she’s really struggled with her core coursework this year. Her plans for life after high school include attending Salt Lake Community College to pursue a career in photography and film.
According to nominating faculty member, Annette Swayze, “Makayla is one of the kindest, most thoughtful, sensitive, and funny students I have met in my years at Horizon. She always has a smile on her face and a bounce to her step. She has truly risen above her story by pulling her grades up when she was struggling. She stays after school to get help, asks questions in class, is well mannered, and is a fine role model for all of our Horizon students! I am proud to nominate Makayla for this week’s “Student of the Week” award!
