Isabella Peterson, daughter of Shellie Peterson, is a junior at Centennial High School and this week’s Student of the Week.
She is the Best Buddies President and a Cougar Crew Officer. Peterson said that Best Buddies is one of her biggest passions. “It is such an amazing organization that is inclusive and changes the lives of so many people,” she said.
Her favorite teacher at CHS is Ms. Lincoln. “Since the day I met her, she has encouraged me and inspired me despite me not being her student,” she said.
Peterson said her biggest role model is her mother, Shellie. “She has moved mountains to get where she is,” she said. “She inspires me every day.”
After graduating from CHS, she plans to go to college to pursue her bachelor’s and master’s degrees in education. She hopes to teach at the elementary level and, one day, become a school principal.
