McGregor in the spotlight for October

The Reed-Custer High School Senior Spotlight winner for the month of October is Cory McGregor.

Cory is the son of Cecilia Pickard and Marty McGregor.

During his time at RCHS, Cory has been involved in football, basketball, track, NHS, SSA, math team, WYSE, has worked as a homework depot tutor, and was a Student of the Month.

Cory’s dedication to academics and his peers is something that his teachers acknowledge.

Mrs. Leveille noted Cory has been a part of the WYSE team for the last two years, and is one of the few to compete as a sophomore.

“Cory is a great leader and role model for classmates,” Mrs. Leveille said. “He has a positive attitude and is always polite. He even helped rescue a frog that was illegally brought back into the building after a trip to the pond!”

Mrs. Bugg called Cory “impressive” since his freshmen year in health class, when he set the record for most cat stickers earned in a semester.

“Even though he is a senior, he is still in the top five all-time leaders,” Mrs. Bugg said. “He is confident, polite, mannerly and extremely mature for his age.”

Mrs. Valiente called Cory “an absolute rock star.”

“He is kind, he is intrinsically driven, he understands the importance of balancing a rigorous academic schedule while also participating in sports and maintaining friendships,” Mrs. Valiente said. “He’s really just the best.”

Mrs. Rankin appreciates that Cory is a very diligent worker and a positive influence and leader in the classroom.

Mr. Carrescia agrees that Cory is a hard worker, who is looked up to by his peers.

“He is always willing to go above and beyond to get his work done, and is an all-around good kid,” Mr. Carrescia said.

Ms. Faletti called Cory a well-rounded student.

“He’s conscientious, responsible, hard-working, and involved in his school and community,” Ms. Faletti said.

Mr. Welsh is pleased to add that Cory is a member of the executive committee in the Reed-Custer branch of the National Honors Society.

Mr. Wolf believes that Cory represents everything good about a high school student-athlete.

“He is a role model to his peers, and he isn't afraid to challenge himself,” Mr. Wolf said. “Cory is honest, kind, and hard-working. These attributes and many others will make him successful in whatever endeavor he chooses.”

Mrs. Benoit called Cory is kind, and noted his efforts to volunteer his time to help others achieve success in academics, and doing so with a smile on his face.

“He is an ideal student,” Mrs. Benoit said.

Cory’s advice to younger students is, “always believe in yourself and do the best that you can do.”

Cory’s future plans are to study engineering at a four-year university.

The teachers and staff at RCHS congratulate Cory McGregor as the October winner of the Senior Spotlight.
