Academic All-Star Interviews: Potosi High School

(Potosi) Potosi High School held its graduation on Friday, May 12th and the final day of school is approaching. As part of our Academic All Star interview series, Regional Radio spoke with seniors Kaydence Gibson and Gavin Portell. They are two of seven seniors to graduate suma cum laude at Potosi High School. Portell wanted to take a moment to acknowledge two teachers who played a big role in his academic success.

Portell will be attending Missouri Baptist University to play football and he plans to enroll in a pre-professional program with a focus in either medicine or on becoming a chiropractor.

Gibson is also the class president. She tells us what some of her duties are.

Gibson will go to Mineral Area College in the fall to be a member of the track & field team. She has plans to be a traveling nurse.
