John Schmidt

John Schmidt

Ingleside Big Hollow

Principal: Mr. Bill Schufreider

As a student at Big Hollow Middle School, located in Ingleside, John Schmidt has been an active member of the wrestling and track and field teams, running club, and spelling bee. His athletic abilities have been commended with several awards such as the 2011 Boys Track and Field Most Outstanding 6th grader, the 2012 Boys Track and Field Most Outstanding 7th grader, and the 2012 Most Improved Wrestler. Outside of school, John has also enjoyed participating in Boy Scouts of America and the Grant Township Area Athletics Association Baseball team.

Upon entering high school, John wishes to continue to participate in sports, especially Cross Country in which he competitively aims to beat his fatherís best times in the sport. If asked about what he finds to be one of the most significant characteristics for any student athlete to have John would reply with "sportsmanship;" as he states in his Scholar Attitude Award application, "it does not matter about winning or losing, as long as you are having fun."

It is clear from the comments of Johnís teachers that he extends good character and attitude into the classroom as well; they consistently express how much of a pleasure he is to have in class and praise his conscientious classroom behavior.

Maintaining a current 4.0 grade point average, John is a regular on the Honor Roll, and has also received both the Student of the Month Award and the Character Counts Award.

As the recipient of the 2013 Scholar Attitude Award from Board of Directors Division A, John aspires to be the next great inventor like Thomas Edison and would love to enhance our way of living with an awesome technological advancement.
