Quote from teacher: “Kurtis is one of the brightest students that I have ever had the pleasure of working with,” said Brian Nagy, science teacher. “He is able to juggle the demands of a very full extracurricular schedule while still taking his academics very seriously. Kurtis exhibits a strong leadership quality throughout all that he does, whether it’s in the classroom, on the mat, or on the ball diamond. He personifies the true meaning of ‘scholar athlete.’ Kurtis is able to accept challenges and adversity with a strong sense of maturity and responsibility. He shows strong ability to interact with classmates and teachers on a personal level and is a vital asset to his school and community. Kurtis has developed very good problem-solving skills and is very thorough in all that he does, with a keen attention to detail. Kurtis is undoubtedly going to be very successful in whatever career path he chooses to pursue and his potential is limited only by his vision of the future.”
