Logan Thompson, age eight, is a third grade student in Mrs.Vangelist’s class at Raymond Elementary School. Lunch and science are her two favorite subjects. What makes learning fun for her is when the lessons are turned into games.
Thompson was chosen as student of the week, not only because she works hard and excels in her studies but because she is an exceptionally selfless person. Her teacher shares the story of a day, not long ago, when the class was working on a holiday project, making ornaments as a gift to their families. There were several projects to choose from but the hot chocolate ornament was the most popular. As a result, the teacher realized she was short one ornament.
Her teacher explained that once Thompson realized this shortage, she was there to help. “Without hesitation Logan stood up, walked over to the girl (without the project supplies), and gave her the ornament,” Vangelist continued. “Logan did not do this for praise, or for a reward. She did this because that is the kind of person she is. She is a model student at Raymond Elementary and I’m very proud of her.”
Thompson, who enjoys inventing things with objects she finds around her house, plans to attend college to get a doctorate in law. She also plans to invent medicines.
Thompson has a little brother named Brian, a little sister named Alexis and a half-sister, Kadince. She also has two cats and one dog.
