Grace Lougheed, Senior
Why did you join the Superintendent's Student Advisory Committee?
I joined the Superintendent's Student Advisory Council because I believe that student advocacy and change is extremely important. I find that my peers have an invaluable viewpoint that when put to use in such an organization will bring great improvements to Shaker.
What are your post-high school plans?
I plan on attending college after high school.
Describe any activities (athletics, music, theatre, youth groups, etc.) you have been involved in during your high school years – in or out of SHHS.
During my high school years, I have played on the girls tennis team, written for The Shakerite as a Campus and City editor and led a SGORR group as a member of Core.
Do you have any volunteer or community service experience? When, where and how much time did you give? How has it influenced your personal growth?
I have had multiple service opportunities through SGORR. Over the summer, I facilitated at a transracial adoption camp. The experience was eye opening and I grew both as a facilitator and a socially conscious person through working with the families. Last spring, Core took a trip to Washington, D.C. where we had the opportunity to facilitate to a class at an inner city elementary school. The experience took me out of the "Shaker bubble" and I found hearing the experiences and opinions of children outside of the Shaker system to be very intriguing and rewarding.
Where do you see yourself in 8-10 years?
In 8-10 years, I see myself with a rewarding career in a field that I love.
Please share your favorite quote.
“How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.” – Anne Frank
