Quote from Teacher:  “Sydney Sampson is my ‘dream student,” said Melissa Napierala, English teacher. “Not only does she tackle her assignments with courage and tenacity, but she strives for excellence in all she does. She is a ‘thinker’ who compels her classmates to think deeply and respond thoroughly. She is a champion for our school and community, and is the founding member of a group called M.O.V.E. (Making Opportunities for Volunteering Eagles), and this group exemplifies her compassionate heart. She LOVES helping others and places her focus on those needs within our school and community. Often, teenagers are egocentric. Sydney, however, is one of the most giving, self-sacrificing individuals, and she does it all while being in the top ten of her senior class and playing varsity sports. I have no doubt that Sydney will change the world with her innovation and passion. I am so proud to call her a Mason Eagle, and am blessed to have had her as a student.”
