Wolf in the spotlight in September


Reed-Custer High School senior Emily Wolf finds herself in the spotlight this month.

Emily has been named the Senior Spotlight winner for September.

Emily is the daughter of Mark and Katie Wolf.

During her high school career, Emily has been involved in softball, volleyball, Math Team, Student Council, NHS, marching band, jazz band, pep band, choir, madrigals, WYSE, pit orchestra, Thespian Club, Homework Depot tutor, RC Chatter, Scholastic Bowl, Fall Play, Spring Musical, and SSA.

Emily’s teachers have taken notice of her work ethic and kindness toward her peers during her time at RCHS.

Mrs. Sukley said that she is lucky enough to know Emily outside the classroom as well as inside.

“I am able to witness her charisma, contagious, positive attitude and infectious laugh on the softball field,” Mrs. Sukley said. “Not only is she the first to offer help to an underclassman, but she is selfless and for that, Emily is one that is looked up to not only on the softball field but in the classroom as well.”

Mrs. Van Duyne has coached Emily for two years.

“Besides being a great player, Emily is a great leader on and off the volleyball court,” Mrs. Van Duyne said. “Her teammates respect and admire her which is why she was named captain. Emily leads the team with dignity and pride for the sport of volleyball. She is a hard worker and always has a positive attitude and a smile to share.”

Mrs. Dennis appreciates Emily’s positive attitude, and called her a role model for her peers and younger classmates who is organized and works hard in all of her sports, music, and activities.

Mr. Horton agreed, adding that Emily’s intelligence is demonstrated most clearly in her kindness toward others.

“To be smart and mean is easy,” Mr. Horton said. “To be smart and kind, however, takes real intellect.”

Mrs. Valiente said Emily surpasses her peers in charisma, kindness, and drive, and admires her ability to understand the importance of balancing a strong work ethic with a healthy dose of humor/fun.

Mrs. Leveille called Emily is an awesome student and a great leader, always willing to help others in the class.

“What I like best about Emily is that she is always smiling,” Mrs. Leveille said. “She has a positive attitude that spreads to those who are around her.”

Mrs. Patton enjoys that Emily is a very self-motivated, dedicated and hard-working student and athlete, calling her friendly, enthusiastic and fun to be around.

Ms. Faletti said she appreciates that Emily is a responsible, conscientious young woman who gives her best at everything she does.

“Whether in school or on the athletic field, Emily is a team player who is willing to help out anyone in need,” Ms. Faletti said.

Mr. Meyer called Emily is “a great kid” who is always involved in any class.

Mrs. Bugg said Emily is a multi-talented senior who excels in athletics, the arts and academics.

“She is conscientious, mature and, most of all, incredibly thoughtful and empathetic.” Mrs. Bugg said. “One of the best all-around, exceptional kids to ever go through Reed-Custer High School.”

Mrs. Johnston said Emily is one of the most responsible young ladies she has ever met.

“She always puts her classwork first,” Mrs. Johnston said. “She also has a smile for everyone! She is a perfect role model for younger students.”

Mrs. Benoit added that Emily is an outstanding student because she is respectful, polite, self-motivated to learn, and she possesses the ability to solve problems.

“Emily puts in her max effort into everything she does,” Mrs. Benoit said. “She is a natural leader – always eager to help someone while ensuring others feel confident in their work. Emily does everything with a smile on her face!!”

As a final thought, Emily’s advice to younger students is, “Always work hard and try your best, but remember to have fun!”

Emily’s future plans are to major in mathematics at a yet-to-be determined 4-year university.

The teachers and staff at RCHS congratulate Emily Wolf, the September winner of the “Senior Spotlight”.
