CINCINNATI - Senior, Julie Metzner is leading the way at Northwest High School, both in the classroom and in the hallways.
"They would all say, '[Metzer] is just a great student.' I'm sure they would all say that, if not more. In the classroom, outside the classroom, you just love to have those students," said Adrienne Frazier, a teacher at Northwest High School.
Metzer's a star in the classroom with a 5.2 weighted GPA taking both honors and advanced placement classes. Metzner also spends time with younger students through a freshman mentoring program.
"Once I was a mentor, it just came naturally to me just to go out and spend time with the freshmen and get to know them and build relationships with them," Metzer said. "So I love loving people, it's what I do best."
She's a member of the National Honor Society, president of the Officer Advisory Board just to name a few of the organizations she's a part of. Metzner says she is always happy to lend a hand to anyone she can.
"I love the fact that I can brighten their day because not everybody has a great life, and building relationships with people is a great thing," Metzner said.
"There's not one thing I see in her, it's the constant you know, extra-curricular activities, in the classroom helping others, you know, making a future for herself. It's kind of the little combination of everything that make her an overall student," said Frazier.
The same day Julie found out she was selected as Student of the Week, she also learned she was accepted into Miami University, where she will study nursing.
