Why was student nominated? "Selynna is not a student who seeks recognition, is incredibly modest and would probably see this honor as one undeserved. However, her peers and teachers feel differently. Selynna is a quiet leader that is admired by her peers and teachers for her academic integrity and her friendship. She is not only committed to her academic achievement, but to helping others. She exemplifies the intellect, character and creativity that embodies Rivermont's mission. Although quiet and reserved, she also has a humorous wit that puts smiles on faces of everyone." — Leigh Ann Schroeder
