Starkville Academy sixth grader Logan Alpe is a role model to her fellow classmates, and that is why she was selected as this weekâ€™s academic all-star.
â€śAs elementary counselor, I see Logan as being a role model for other students,â€ť Jessica Hubbard said. â€śShe is responsible, a great listener and a diligent worker. Logan has a bright future ahead of her.â€ť
Logan is a straight-A student, scoring 94 percent or above in all subjects, who likes school because â€śhaving nice teachers and friends makes learning more fun,â€ť she said.
She names social studies as her favorite subject because she likes to learn about the past and other countries, she said.
â€śI am usually curious about things, so in school we get to ask any question we want, and usually get an answer,â€ť Logan added of what makes her want to learn.
â€śLogan is an excellent student,â€ť teacher Jennifer Winfield said. â€śShe is very intelligent and has a great work ethic. Her attention to detail is rare for any student, especially at this age.â€ť
In addition to being a good student, Logan is also an accomplished athlete. She is a member of the SA swim team, Starkville Shockwave swim team, cheerleading, soccer and running club. She also shows horses through 4-H for which she has earned several awards.
Logan already has bright plans for her future as she hopes to attend Mississippi State University where she would like to earn her degree in veterinary medicine.
Logan is the daughter of Mike and Mitzi Alpe.
