Faces of Winona

WALC Student of the Month

Student of the Month for December, 2014, at the Winona Area Learning Center is junior Alexis Rogers.  Alexis began attending the WALC last spring, but she has already made an impression on her teachers with her diligence, creativity and respectful attitude. Her English teacher says that Alexis “has a big heart and sticks up for the underdog…she will pitch in whenever needed and does not shy away from challenges!” Alexis is also calm, on task, polite, and determined. Many of her teachers see her as quietly influential with her peers, supporting others who are struggling or upset. Her PE teacher says that Alexis contributes to the WALC’s welcoming atmosphere, commenting that she was recently “a new student from Florida, and I often see her sitting next to the new people in our school.” She likes to stay productive and completes excellent quality work in all of her classes. Alexis says that her favorite classes so far are Work Skills and Math, and she likes that she can work at her own pace at the WALC.  Alexis’ family includes mom Carrie Spaid and step-dad Carson Rheil. Outside of school, Alexis enjoys drawing, writing, singing and taking care of animals.
