Students of the Month W-A-Y Watervliet High School – February

Kayla Spears

Watervliet High School W-A-Y program is proud to announce their first student of the month for February is Kayla Spears. Kayla has been in the program since her freshman year. She is now a senior and looking forward to graduation.

In the past month she earned 1.5 credits, working hard from home on some very difficult subjects! Kayla does a great job of finding solutions to problems on her own, but reaching out when she does have a question. Kayla’s parents are Chrissy Merritt and Daniel Pruitt. Currently, she doesn’t have a job, but devotes her time to doing school work.

After she graduates, she would like to take some college courses and learn all she can about photography. Her goal is to also have an internship so she can build a portfolio. In her spare time, she enjoys hanging out with her friends and family and finding time to relax. Keep up the hard work, Kayla! The staff and students at W-A-Y look forward to watching her walk across the stage and collect her diploma soon!

Ariel Collins

Ariel Collins is the second W-A-Y student of the month for February. Ariel has been in the program for about a year and a half and is presently a senior well on her way to graduating! Ariel has also been working very hard from home. She does an amazing job of asking questions for help on her projects. Ariel’s dad is Michael Collins.

In her spare time, she enjoys watching TV or cleaning! When she isn’t working hard to graduate, she also works at Culvers. After high school, Ariel would like to take a gap year before attending college. She is still deciding between being a labor and delivery nurse or a labor midwife.

Ariel is a very good example of a self motivated student. She has a lot on her plate, yet still finds time for school work every week. They look forward to seeing Ariel graduate very soon, also!
