Scholar Of The Week: Taylor Pytleski

Posted: Updated:

 Our Scholar of the Week does a lot of extra work in class and that effort is paying off.

 Her grade point average right now is 4.1.

 She is active in sports and very active in academics.
 Tonight, you're going to meet Taylor Pytleski from Lennox High School.

 Taylor Pytleski is one of the most active students at Lennox high school.
 The classes she is taking are keeping her busy. just take a listen. "AP bio, which is on-line, calculus which is also a college course, AP English, advanced chemistry, anatomy."

 All tough courses...none of them are a cakewalk.
 But she says she studies until she understands the complex details of each and then, when she cans, she tries to help other students understand as well.
 Casey Vietor is one of Taylor's math teachers. "She's a very kind and compassionate person. Does very well in class. Very studious. Always on time. Makes sure she has all of her work done."

 And all the work Taylor is doing now is done with a goal in mind down the road. "I'm planning on being some sort of doctor so probably medical school."

 Medical school; her class load now is teaching her the value of studying and time management, skills she will need in medical school..a goal she says she is committed to achieving. "I want to major in psychology I think and with a minor in Spanish. I'm not for sure yet but that's what I'm looking at right now."

 And for being named our Scholar of the Week, Taylor will receive a $100 scholarship from Southeastern Electric Cooperative, which is a local Touchstone Energy cooperative.
