Caden Hughes, son of Crystal Mccord, is a freshman at Fairview High School and this week’s Student of the Week.
One of his biggest passions is the brain. He said this passion is due to his fascination with memory and the ability to forget things.
His favorite class at FVHS is Geometry with Mr. Bolton. Hughes said, he “pushes me and my peers to achieve higher goals.”
Mr. Boulton said of Hughes, “Caden is quick-witted, sharp and dedicated—an excellent student and an engaging peer to his classmates. What most don’t know… Caden is selfless with his time and knowledge. He is a huge asset to our school and learning community.”
Hughes said that television personality, musician, and puppeteer Fred Rogers is one of his most prominent role models. “He is kind to all and had his own television show,” he said.
Although he is only a freshman, he said that he already has his college plans in place. He would like to go to Oxford University to pursue a degree in Neurology.
