Seniors Sohl, Spector, and Sjursen strive for excellence
Students have described their difficult classes in various ways. The term "X weighted" officially defines a class where academic skill and incentive are a necessity. In a "X-wcightcd" course a grade of "A" equals 5 points instead of the usual point "A". A grade of "B" would then equal 4 points and so on.
A majority of students never enrolled in a "X-weighted” course. Many students took "X-wcightcd" classes in the areas of study they excelled in. And then there were those students, the kind that did extra credit work even when they already were receiving an "A”, the kind of students who don't stop at being just good enough, and these were the kind of students who took all "X-weighted” classes. That’s right Sarah Sohl. Mike Spector. and Gunnar Sjursen have packed their academic schedules with all "X-weighted" classes. Their school days struggled by as follows: Advanced physics, calculus. Biology II (Mike and Sarah) and German IV (Gunner), college English. European history, and gym.
Academic achievements were great for Sarah, Mike, and Gunnar. Both Sarah and Mike were ranked in the top five of their class. Gunnar's score of 32 on the ACT exam was the best of the bunch. Mike, in
the first semester, achieved the sole honor of a 3.0 grade point average.
Surprisingly, school work played only a part of their lives. Gunnar was a member of Science Club and High School Bowl and treasurer of German Club. He also enjoyed listening to all forms of music, from punk to classical. Mike's interests were similiar. He was a Science and German Club member and played drums in a rock band.
Sarah was especially involved in extra-curricular activities. She served as vice-president of Lettermen’s Club and captain of girls' varsity tennis. Sarah Sohl, Mike Spec-tor, and Gunnar Sjursen definitely lead "X-weighted" lives.
Sarah Sohl. Mike Spccior. and Gunner Siursen spend some lime studying at the library.
