The one word that best describes Sydney Smith is leadership. Now a senior at Gregori High School, Sydney has served as the FFA Vice President for the past two years and this year has been elected as the 2012 Gregori FFA Chapter President. She has also been elected as Gregori High School ASB President, and as Senior Class president for 2012-13. It’s no wonder that Sydney’s sponsor calls her “a truly great leader that has earned the respect of her peers.”
Sydney has also been a driving force in starting many traditions at Gregori High that will last for years to come. She has been instrumental in creating the CLAW freshman orientation program, the Fall and Winter Homecoming, the tutoring programs Coco and Cram, and Club Rush, which helps the entire student body see all the clubs and activities that are available to them. Without Sydney’s leadership these programs would not have been what they are today.
It’s no wonder that Sydney’s nominating teacher also calls her “the most well-rounded student she has ever known”. Not only does Sydney excel at academics with a schedule full of advanced, rigorous courses, she also has proven herself to be an extraordinary athlete, who was recently named to the All-League Cross Country team. Sydney’s accomplishments at Gregori High School make her not only one of the Mayor’s Top Teens, but part of the next generation of American leaders.
