Northwood High school has a rich history of students who go above and beyond the basic requirements for fulfilling his or her duties as a high school student. This year is no different, and the Senior Class of 2019 has proven that Falcons work hard to display the intelligence, drive and dedication it takes to achieve recognition in our community, school and beyond. One of those outstanding seniors is Reggi Wright. While taking rigorous classes and maintaining Renaissance status for her four years at NHS, Reggi has also completed over 500 service hours which will be highlighted through her Community Service Diploma Endorsement. She has maintained FAME status for all four years, as well as gained membership into National Honor Society and Beta, Key and Spanish clubs. Ms. Wright was also invited to the prestigious Washington DC Youth Summit on the Environment and the UCLA Future Leaders in Medicine Program where she spent much of last summer gaining valuable experience and knowledge, while also representing Northwood High School at two prestigious events. Due to her success and excellence, Reggi will be attending Dillard University where she was offered over $30,000 in scholarships and will major in nursing.
Another top scholar of this year’s senior class is Macey Duncan. Macey was also a member of Key Club, Student Council, Beta and National Honor Society where she served as Vice-President. Macey was chosen to represent Northwood at Girls State at Northwestern State University where she learned the workings of government at both the local and state levels. Because of her continued academic rigor, she maintained Renaissance status, was number one in her class at the end of junior year and was chosen as Northwood’s Student of the Year for the 2018-2019 school year. Macey also won the school-level competition for Poetry Out Loud and represented the Falcons at the regional level. Ms. Duncan was able to attend the Regional Level of Science fair two years in a row where she placed third in her category. As a member of Student Council, she attended the LASC State Convention during her junior year. Because of her continued dedication to academics and leadership, Ms. Duncan was awarded over $60,000 in scholarship awards to Baylor University where she will attend and major in Biology.
Congratulations to these two outstanding Falcons and to the Senior Class of 2019. We cannot wait to see what your future holds!
