Valone in the Reed-Custer Spotlight for September

The Reed-Custer High School Senior Spotlight winner for the month of September is Macey Valone.

Macey is the daughter of Thomas and Tonya Valone.

During her high school career, Macey was involved in Student Council, FCCLA, National Honor Society, Comet Community Leaders, and the World Language Club. She was also a Class Officer, a Student of the
Month, an ACE winner, a participant in the ICE Leadership Conference, a Comet Stop worker, and was on the High Honor Roll.

Her future plans are to attend a 4-year university (possibly Lewis) and study social work.

Here are a few thoughts from Macey’s teachers.

Mr. Johnston says that Macey is “such a positive spirit. She is trustworthy and responsible. Any task you give her, you know she will get it done, and be done right.”

Mrs. Terry thinks that Macey is “a rockstar! She is an extremely hard worker who puts in her best effort on everything she does. She is always willing to help out and is a great role model to younger students.”

Mrs. Rankin appreciates that Macey brings “a positive energy and attitude to everything she does. Her hard work and enthusiasm are contagious, and she sets a great example for everyone around her. It was a pleasure to have her in class.”

Ms. Soto believes that Macey is “one of a kind! She is always smiling and helping out around the school. She is a great role model to other students. We are lucky to have her as a Comet!”

Mr. Welsh acknowledges that “Miss Valone is always the first to volunteer, take on the toughest jobs, and do so with a smile. She optimizes the trait of Service for NHS.”

Mrs. Leveille remembers that she “had Macey in our Honors Biology class back when she was a "little freshman" (although much taller than her brother). I remember her always with a smile on her face and a positive attitude. I enjoyed her "energy" and liveliness that she brought with her to class. She worked well with her peers and always gave her best effort when it came to her school work.”

Mrs. Meyr thinks that Macey is “is very responsible and hard-working. She is extremely polite anytime she comes into the library. I have watched her grow and succeed since she was in my first-grade classroom. It’s been a joy to see her journey into High School.”

Mrs. Redwitz believes that Macey is “an amazing young adult. She is always smiling, always willing to help out and will go out of her way to make others happy. She thinks of others and put their feeling first.”

Mrs. Cann appreciates that Macey is “always willing to help someone in need. She is a hard worker with a positive attitude and always greets you with a smile. Macey has mastered the art of balance, juggling activities and academics with grace. I am sure going to miss her energetic personality next year!”

Mr. Newsom says that Macey is “a very nice, very polite, and respectful, and responsible, and dependable student. I enjoy having her in class.” Mrs. Robinson thinks that Macey is “amazing! She is a hard worker and is willing to help others. She always has a smile on her face, which is great to see!”

Mrs. Arseneau says that Macey is “just such a joy to be around! She is sweet, smart, hardworking, and independent. Macey is my go-to girl on just about anything! I know that I can give her a task for class, preschool, or Student Council and she will get it done the right way. She is someone I can count on to help other students out because I know she will be kind and patient. I know Macey is going to go far in life after RCHS! Proud of her for being the first selected in the Senior Spotlight honor for this school year!

Ms. Meents appreciates that Macey is “without a doubt, one of my hardest working students. She always comes to school with a positive mindset and is an overall joy to have in my class. Not only is she overly prepared for whatever challenges that come her way, but she is also always willing to lend a helping hand to a classmate or keep people in line when necessary. I consider Macey to be a leader in my class and I believe that other students look up to her because of her many amazing qualities! I wish Macey the best of luck and already know that she will succeed in whatever she does after high school!”

As a final thought, Macey’s advice to younger students is, “Involve yourself in as many things as possible, especially your Senior Year. Go to volleyball games and football games; support your school! Go to Homecoming and Prom and have fun with your friends, or you’ll regret it. Don’t be too cool for school.”

On behalf of the teachers and staff at RCHS, congratulations to Macey Valone as the September winner of the Senior Spotlight.
