Autumn Nelson is Oregon High School’s Senior of Distinction, nominated by teacher Samuel Watt.
“Autumn comes into my class each day with a big smile and a willingness to learn and work. She astonishes me every day with her drive to do well, even with her many obligations and responsibilities.
“She has faced hardships most people don’t face until after college,” Watt said in his nomination. “Never the less, she completes her homework on time, puts forth immense effort on assessments, and leads the class in work ethic and participation.
“For these reasons and many other, I nominate Autumn Nelson for Senior of Distinction.”
