Jordan-Small Middle School sixth-grader Lily Oldershaw is The Windham Eagle student of the week. The 12-year-old loves English/language arts and wants to be an author when she grows up.
She lives with her mom, dad and brother Lucas. She has two cats, Pepper and Night.
“Lily Oldershaw wants to be a writer. She has a knack for understanding character, developing setting, and using language to express the most wonderful ideas- and what an amazing sense of humor she has. Whether it’s science, math, social studies, or another subject, Lily stands out. Perhaps this is because she is such a global thinker, looking at all sides, asking the right questions, and formulating unique, informed opinions. The kind of person who can sit at any lunch table, Lily not only strives to do well herself but also to help her peers achieve their best,” said the student of the week committee at JSMS.
Education is important “because it helps you get a good job,” Lily said. When she’s not in school she enjoys skiing, playing softball, soccer or reading.
