Webb continues to highlight student achievements in Academics, Arts and Athletics with monthly recognitions during chapel. Among those honored with certificates for August were Macy Simon - Scholar of Month; Mili Walton - Artist of Month; and Bella Griffy - Student-Athlete of the Month.
The academic and artist awards’ purpose is to celebrate those outstanding scholars who embody academic excellence and live the values of the six Enduring Understandings. Selection is made based on the following attributes: hard working, intellectually curious, best effort on all assignments, service to the community, enthusiasm about learning gains, self-agency, integrity in all actions and also participation in extracurricular activities.
The student-athlete award celebrates those students who maintain an academic standard of 3.0 GPA or above; show respect for coaches, teammates, officials, teachers, other students and family; show enthusiasm and a positive attitude; display altruism and help teammates improve; display commitment to practice, games, and personal skill development; maintain honesty and play by the rules; and have high moral character.
Lea Anne Windham, Math Department Chair
“Macy has an amazing attitude towards learning. She does not expect to understand every concept right away, but she is willing to invest the time to fully understand. Because she allows herself the time, it gives her the opportunity to learn and connect new concepts to concepts she already understands. Although Macy has excellent grades, she is driven by learning.”
Pamela Seals, Advisor
“Macy is truly an academic superstar. She pays attention to details and thinks at a high level. She is a diligent and hardworking young lady in all she does, but beyond that, she is truly a kind and caring human being. Additionally, she is involved with the Webb community in other ways such as running Cross Country. I am proud of all she does at Webb.”
Michael Stem, Art Teacher
"From her first art class with me in the fall of 2018, it was very apparent Mili had a passion. Her appreciation for art was at a level that most don't gain until much later in life. In the years since, she has developed an impressive portfolio of two and three-dimensional work, won art contests, and attended some of the best summer art programs. She has given back to our community by illustrating the card for our annual Grandparents’ Day celebration. She tirelessly creates work on many different conceptual levels and continues to push herself and the viewer to new levels. From 8th grade Art to AP 3-D Design and everything in between, Mili Walton has more than proven she is a true artist."
Christy Sutton, Advisor
“Mili is a true example of a Webb Scholar. She fully dedicates herself to both the arts and academics. MIli is incredibly talented, often sharing her amazing artistic talents on the whiteboards in classrooms for others to enjoy. She is a kind friend, looking out for those around her and willing to help whenever needed. Mili showcased her talents this summer at the Ringling College of Art and Design summer program. There is no doubt that she has a bright future ahead of her.”
Scott Dorsett, Director of Athletics
“Bella has been killing it on the court and off the court by putting 110% into practices/games, effectively using her down time to make sure her studies are completed, and helping those around her to try to do the same. We see and appreciate her efforts to manage her time between school and sports. Bella is a great example of a Webb Lady. She is a leader amongst her peers, is a great example of character and being a ‘tireless worker’.”
Shelby Lamb, Advisor
“Bella does whatever is asked of her whenever it is asked of her. She is dependable and works as hard in the classroom as she does on the court/field. I appreciate the effort she displays, even on the most challenging of days. She is a wonderful example to her peers and to the younger Webb students. We are lucky to call her a Webb Lady. I'm so proud to be her advisor and her softball coach.”
