Quote from teacher: “On top of the consistently strong academics, Alexis is always wonderfully pleasant, kind, and respectful,” said Maria Maluchnik, counselor. “She stands out as a leader in her senior class; leading quietly, allowing her actions to speak for themselves. On top of her involvement with in-school and out-of-school activities, Alexis carries a very full and challenging academic load. A schedule this hectic would be difficult for many people but she handles it with great enthusiasm and skill. Alexis will certainly be another Genoa student success story!”
