Pedro
Student of the Month - Pedro N.

Pedro demonstrates leadership as a role model for other students. His tenacity, drive, and grit lead him to inevitable success, as failure is not an option for him. He is keenly aware of his fellow students' academic struggles, as he is quick to offer help, whether to a neighbor sitting next to him, or even asking a teacher to volunteer in a classroom. He is on top on things and knows what he wants for his future. He is always willing to help other students with homework and is a role model.

He is one of the most respectful students we have ever had here at Wellstone, both past and present. He is always here, on time, prepared, engaged, respectful and nice. … a true professional. When I think of a leader at this school, I think of Pedro. Despite his mere 16 years of age, he is mature and focused.
