Amy Gueye, a sophomore in the Academy of Global Studies (AGS) program at Winton Woods City Schools is described by her guidance counselor Christina Jeranek as someone who exemplifies what it means to be a Warrior. “She is kind and polite to everyone, and easy to get along with,” said Jeranek. “In school, Amy is a hard worker, maintaining a 3.5 GPA despite a rigorous course load. She is often chosen to be group leader because she is so responsible and gets the job done.”
“You might expect a person with such excellent grades to spend all of her time studying, but that is not the case for Amy,” said Jeranek. “She has a full schedule which includes extra-curricular activities to maintain a balanced lifestyle. She is involved with both the high school track team and softball team and was chosen to be one of the students representing Winton Woods at the University of Charleston as part of a leadership workshop. She is also a member of the ‘Girls Guide’ club which is a mentoring group for young ladies.”
In addition, Gueyes is involved in the Health Professions Affinity Club (HPAC) group from the University of Cincinnati. “Amy works with this group to learn about different career opportunities in the health profession,” said Jeranek. “A major part of the club is working on community engagement. As part of their current project, Amy and the group are organizing a food drive to collect food for the Fairfield Food Pantry. Amy has taken a leadership role in this endeavor and is excited at the prospect of helping so many people. She is a role model to her peers and a true asset to her school community.”
