With graduation dates hot on our heels, we started to wonder what makes an exceptional student?
We found one at Carencro High School. Not only is Tori Spindler a 4.0 GPA student, she is also the school’s student of the year.
"Don't ever settle for less than your best and what you are capable of," says Spindler. That's a thought process that has taken Tori Spindler to the top of her class. Tori says her 4.0 grade point average did not come without challenges, but the view has been worth the climb.
"It took self-motivation and motivation from friends and family. It's just something I wanted to do." Tori's English teacher of two years is not surprised by Tori's educational outcome. Anna Marquardt is confident Tori is graduating equipped to do and be whatever her heart desires. "She's going into the world with her new life prepared, open and ready," says Anna Marquardt.
Tori's father Tim is proud no doubt. Just work hard and try to your best is all he said he expected. "Just hope that she can do all the things that she can do and that's whether on her own or with other people; just do well and perform at the best level that she can," says Tim Spindler.
We're told that Brittany Sonnier of Lafayette is the other outstanding and accomplished 4.0 GPA student at Carencro High.
