CHEYENNE, Wyo. — Courtney Walton, an eighth-grade student at Carey Junior High, was selected as Laramie County School District 1’s Student of the Week for the week of April 15.

Walton was nominated by the selection committee for displaying incredible leadership qualities and academic prowess. She is commonly chosen by her peers as a class leader when her teachers are not present for the day. This comes as no surprise, as Walton has been recommended by all her teachers for her work ethic and kindness. She goes out of her way to be a great friend and is always willing to help others.

Walton maintains a 4.0 GPA and is president of the Carey Student Senate. She is also an active participant in all sports offered at Carey. Outside of school, Walton spends her time running recreationally and playing cello.

Walton selected Carey music teacher Suzy Wagner as her favorite teacher because she shows kindness while encouraging her students to improve and have fun while doing so.
