Star student

A “five-star” rating for the recent “Student of the Week” article in the Belleville News-Democrat’s Lifestyle-Education section. Writer Mary Cooley picked a truly inspirational subject in Belleville East junior Ivy Truong.

Cooley then fashioned an insightful and enjoyable rundown and Q & A with her. A gem like Ivy, picked from the current crop of local high schoolers, helps to restore confidence in our public school system.

I’m looking forward to reading about more impressive students in the future.
