Kiwanis Student of the Week: Allison Murphy
The Prescott Kiwanis Student of the Week for Feb. 27 is Prescott High School senior Allison Murphy, who was nominated by Prescott High School English teacher Bonnie McNary.
"Allison demonstrates the values of Prescott High School," McNary said. "She establishes positive relationships with fellow students and staff, makes her learning relevant to her future career goals, demonstrates utmost respect for others, successfully completes coursework of rigor, and never wavers in her responsibilities both in and out of the classroom. I have had the honor of teaching thousands of students in 30-plus years of education, but there are only a few, like Allison, who make an indelible impression.
"When faced with challenges, some students give up or make excuses, but Allison digs in harder and finds a way to be successful despite any obstacles. Her tenacious work ethic, her "can do" attitude, her unending positivity, her visionary leadership, her extraordinary maturation beyond her years among so many other assets sincerely ranks Allison above many. Allison Murphy has truly left her legacy of leadership at Prescott High School. Congratulations Allison, you have earned this honor in so many ways. Thank you for being such a fitting role model to the students of PHS for years to come."
