NEW LONDON — Kearsarge Regional High School junior Kathryn Potter has been selected as the school’s student of the month for March.
Potter, of New London, was nominated by staff at the high school. They cited her “quiet contributions” to the school and ability to lead by example.
“Katie is enthusiastic, hard-working, and honest,” social studies teacher Ruby Hill said in a news release from the Kearsarge Regional School District. “If something confuses her, you know it. Likewise, if something excites or intrigues her, you know that, too. I consider her sunshine in the classroom.”
Potter is a member of the high school band and plays clarinet. She represented Kearsarge at the All New England Band Festival at Plymouth State and is a member of the swim team. She plans to study business in college and wants to participate in the Disney College Program for a semester.
“Katie is a diligent, focused student. I can count on her to arrive prepared, engage consistently, and treat her classmates with genuine respect and consideration,” English teacher Amanda Leslie said in the release. “On top of that, she has a subtle sense of humor and wit.”
