The counselors are pleased to announce this month’s nominations for Student of the Month. For February, teachers were asked to nominate a student who has displayed lots of GRIT. Grit can be defined as “perseverance and passion for long-term goals.” This means students who never give up and are willing to see a project through to the end have grit. Although there are many, many students at Highland who have Grit, we are especially proud of the students who were nominated by their teachers.
