Vanessa Berry, a seventh-grade student at Jordan-Small Middle School Windham, is The Windham Eagle’s Student of the Week. Berry states that her favorite subject is science and she enjoys horseback riding, gymnastics and yoga.
“Vanessa Berry is the kind of young person for whom this award was made,” stated her teacher. “She is the best kind of human. Academically, she shines in everything she does. Over the course of this year, she has discovered an unexpected love for reading and writing. This is because Vanessa’s work ethic is something to behold. It doesn’t matter what the subject, she gives it her all, going above and beyond her own expectations to shine. However, Vanessa’s light reaches far beyond academics. Be it, teachers or students, she is the first to help others. In fact, we have even referred to her as the “JSMS Ambassador.” In school, on the athletic field, and on the trail, Vanessa builds positive and lasting relationships. She is a role model for us all.
Berry, who believes hands-on projects make learn fun, lives with her family and 2 cute dogs.
