It is Monday, so that means it is time for our Student of the Week.

This week it is Sheila Hodges at St Johns Country Day school in Orange Park. She is a sophomore there and she is the student council secretary, cheerleader, journalism editor and involved in her church.

She is a fantastic student and she says being involved in school is important for your education, but it also helps you become a leader.

She has some advice for any other students struggling in school.

“I would tell them to have courage to talk to their teachers. I know it can be a little scary to talk to your teachers, but as long as you take that step and get with them that they will help you out,” she says.

She wants to be a journalist when she grows up and attend Columbia University. Congrats on being our Student of the Week!
