CHEYENNE, Wyo. — Evan Westervelt, an eighth grader at Johnson Junior High, was selected as Laramie County School District 1’s Student of the Week for the week of May 16.
The selection committee nominated him for always lifting up those around him and being an exemplar for others to follow.
“I greatly appreciate Evan’s upbeat and positive attitude,” social studies teacher Joey Richert said. “He makes a wonderful role model for his peers as he is constantly kind, respectful, and hardworking.”
Westervelt maintains a 4.0 GPA and is a member of the National Junior Honor Society.
Westervelt is also a member of the swim team and begins his day lifting at 5 a.m. before he goes to practice after school.
He also serves as a youth swim coach in his spare time and has done community service at the Comea Shelter.
In the future, he wants to attend a trade school to simultaneously become an electrician and real estate agent.
