Addison Schmidt Why Addison was nominated: Addison has been a great student to have in class. She is conscientious, friendly, and is a great role model in class. She does her work with the upmost effort, and strives to do her best work at all times. She is nice and polite to her teachers and her peers. I greatly appreciate her attitude and effort throughout the year. Keep up the great work.
What do you enjoy about being a student at R.V.M.S.? I usually like going to the RVHS games with my friends and stuff but we sadly couldn’t do that this year. But I really like all my teachers this year and they're really trying to make everything work right now and they're not giving up.
What are your hobbies? Some of my hobbies are to hang out with family, friends, and play sports. In a normal season I participate in volleyball, track, at RVMS and then I swim over the winter. Sadly I only had two games this season and for the rest of my sports besides volleyball we couldn’t have anything.
Do you have any words of wisdom to offer to others? To work hard because it pays off especially with being online it helps that much more to take notes and to write stuff down.

Also grades may not matter much in middle school but work your butt off to be the best, you deserve the future that you want but to get that you need to work hard. Also enjoy life and the people you have in it, not everyone is going to be around forever.
