SEEK Welcomes Impressive New Students

December 20, 2015

Every fall (and sometimes in the spring) SEEK happily welcomes a new group of freshmen (170 this fall). While SEEK treasures each and every newcomer, sometimes particular students are standouts – those who show a special energy or spark that makes SEEK staff really take notice. Freshmen Nasley Garcia and Akira Campbell are just such students.

SEEK Student Akira Campbell

“What makes Nasley stand out,” says counselor Miriam Perez-Lai, “is her dedication to her studies. She seems to spend all her time with her books, and then claims that reading is her leisure activity as well. I seldom see a freshman with such focus.” Those habits may just be Nasley’s ticket to success, as she achieved a 3.57 GPA her first time out. Still, books and reading are not Nasley’s only pursuits; while in high school she volunteered in a local food pantry, and no doubt will become similarly involved in the future.

Another noticeable newcomer, according to counselor Steven James, is freshman Akira Campbell. “She is very pro-active and attentive to detail… a very special attribute for a freshman,” says Mr. James. Akira’s terrific organizational skills and persistence helped net her a 3.51 GPA in her first semester here.
