NEW LONDON, N.H. — Superintendent Winfried Feneberg is pleased to announce Kearsarge Regional High School’s March student of the month.
Kathryn Potter, a junior from New London, was selected for the honor based on nominations from school staff. The adults who nominated Potter cited her quiet contributions to the school environment, and her leadership by example.
“Katie is enthusiastic, hard-working, and honest,” Social Studies Teacher Ruby Hill said. “If something confuses her, you know it. Likewise, if something excites or intrigues her, you know that, too. I consider her sunshine in the classroom.”
Students of the Month are nominated and selected by faculty in recognition of their positive conduct and character, both on and off campus. The honor is an acknowledgement of an individual’s positive moral character and contributions to the school community.
“Katie is a diligent, focused student. I can count on her to arrive prepared, engage consistently, and treat her classmates with genuine respect and consideration,” English Teacher Amanda Leslie said. “On top of that, she has a subtle sense of humor and wit.”
Potter appreciates the time and energy that Kearsarge teachers have invested in both her and other students as they pursue their goals and passions. “I’m very thankful for their advice and support,” she said.
Potter participates in the school music program, playing clarinet as part of the High School band. She represented Kearsarge at the All New England Band Festival at Plymouth State. She also is a member of the Swim Team.
As a junior, Potter is currently reviewing options for college, with the goal of graduating with a degree in business. She hopes to participate in the Disney College Program for a semester.
