INS salutes Alysha Smith from Lawton Bronson High School as this month’s superior student.

“Alysha is a very busy student who also gives back to her community. She is a member of NHS with a 3.77 grade point average. She is a basketball cheerleading captain, plays in the school band, a volunteer with Big Brothers Big Sister, and teaches kindergarten in a religious education program at Nativity Parish. She is has also started taking classes at the Red Cross to become a volunteer. She does all of this and also deals with a heart condition called LongQuTie Syndrome. She had to have an internal defibrillator implanted when she was 11 years old. She has had many medical problems that she has overcome but it doesn’t stop her from doing anything. She is a very caring and giving person, loves dealing with kids and would someday like to be a nurse and work in pediatrics.”

Congratulate Alysha Smith the INS Superior Student the next time you see her.
