 This week’s student of the week is Megan Schulien. Megan was nominated by Ms. Showalter because Megan adds exuberance to every Creative Writing class. Her enthusiasm is contagious, and she helps to spread her passion for writing to both classmates and club members. For our Poetry Out Loud unit, Megan not only performed a very personal and meaningful piece, but she also made cheesy biscuits for our entire class to make the poem performance day a little brighter and more comfortable. She encouraged other students and even hugged one who became emotional after reading his poem. As club president, Megan selects fun activities for Friday meetings and has been a major reason the club has grown to 60 members. She definitely exemplifies the characteristics of an OHS bear. As this week’s student of the week, Megan will receive a coupon for one free admission to an Oakdale High School event. Way to go Megan!
