Woodmancy receives October honors
The October senior of the month honor has been given to Peyton Woodmancy, daughter of John and Kathy Woodmancy.
Throughout her high school career, Woodmancy has been involved in numerous activities, including cheerleading, musical, mock trial, one acts, golf, National Honor Society, band, speech, track and FFA.
Her participation in such activities has allowed Woodmancy honors and awards that include Academic All-State Golf, second place at district one acts, qualifying for State FFA, and activity awards as well as placing at multiple speech events.
Outside of school, Woodmancy works at Hatch’s Super Foods, and is involved in the library after school program, 4-H, the UMC youth group, and Sunday school.
Woodmancy hopes to attend the University of Nebraska Lincoln and aspires to take some pre-law classes in hopes of one day becoming a criminal or family lawyer.
“I am proud of all the things that I have been a part of during my time at Perkins County. This is truly a great school that allows you to do many things that I would not have otherwise experienced if I had gone to a different school,” she said, adding, “ I am influenced by my home, community and school every day. Without these influences, I would not be the person I am today. As part of a very small town, our community does a very good job of pulling together when someone is in need.”
For being selected Senior of the Month, Woodmancy’s picture will hang in the lobby of Pinnacle Bank in Grant. She will be eligible for a scholarship awarded at the end of the school year.
The Student of the Month and scholarship program are sponsored by Pinnacle Bank of Grant and members of the community.
