Keira Massey

Keira always comes to class with a positive attitude and outstanding work ethic, demonstrated by her moving into Honors Algebra 2 this year.  This is more impressive as not only is Honors Algebra 2 is one of the most challenging classes in WHS but that at the beginning of the year she didn’t have all the skills necessary to achieve that goal. The thing about it is she never complained or made excuses, she just put in the work and made it happen. To Keira’s credit, her work ethic and desire to do her best has made her one of the top three students on the last couple of exams, in a class with many of the most talented math students at Warden High School.

Kiera’s drive for academic excellence isn’t limited to her own though. She often supports her classmates in their learning and can be counted on to assist any students who fall behind or struggle with a concept. Keira has excellent leadership skills that come naturally from her desire to help others succeed.
