CHEYENNE, Wyo. — Triumph High senior student Jaelyn Tafoya was selected as Laramie County School District 1’s Student of the Week for the week of April 25, according to a release from the district.
She was nominated because of her involvement with the National Junior Honor Society and Distributive Education Clubs of America (DECA). However, her love for learning has not stopped there and she is also attending a concurrent enrollment English class at Laramie County Community College.
“Since attending Triumph, Jaelyn has grown into an academic powerhouse,” members of the selection committee said.
According to the release, Tafoya also practices activism in her spare time.
“She represents the best kind of student our district can hope to foster and cultivate,” Triumph Principal Troy Lake said. “We are fortunate to have her as a member of our student body as she moves on to graduate at the end of the school year.”
LCSD 1 says that they are proud to present Tafoya with this honor.
