While we always celebrate students' accomplishments in the classroom, we also want to celebrate what students are accomplishing outside of school as well. An education isn't just found in books or by doing schoolwork, an education encompasses all a student does in their life. Here are some students who have accomplished great things.
TOPS would like to congratulate our very own Drew Sliker who signed recently with Baylor University Acrobatics and Tumbling. Drew came to TOPS in August 2018 so she could balance a rigorous focus on both her sports and education. Since coming to TOPS Drew has not only signed her letter of intent with Baylor, but also has managed to maintain a GPA of 3.5 or higher. We are so very proud of the hard work that Drew demonstrates day in and day out.
TOPS has given Ashten so much confidence in himself that he has become a leader in the community. He is currently a member of the Teen Board at our local library that meets monthly to collaborate on ideas and activities for area teens. It gives them a safe and positive place to go and meet friends without all the normal pressures of high school life. Two years ago he began leading a gaming group for ages 12 and up. They work together as a team and compile strategies to complete quests. He has become a showcased artist having his work displayed for the town to come and admire. From time to time he has even been commissioned to do digital works for Youtuber’s and game developers.
