Two Huntington Catholic School students, Elin Mickley and Aubrey Wiegmann, have been nominated for recognition and a plaque from Edward Jones.

Mickley was nominated for her responsibility, hard-working and passionate attitude. According to Mrs. Jackie Thomas, Mickley demonstrates a character that is always ready to learn and embrace any challenges put in front of her.

“Her work ethic and focus on doing well is an inspiration to her classmates. Elin always works diligently and takes great pride in all she does,” Thomas said.

Thomas also describes Mickley as “a caring and kind-hearted student who sets a positive example for her peers,” also noting her patience and willingness to help in any way, including helping her classmates succeed and grow.

Thomas says Mickley works well with her peers and sets a positive example by making good choices. “She uses the skill of effort by asking for a clarification when she doesn’t understand,” Thomas said. “Elin is a wonderful young lady who will continue to grow academically and socially.”

Thomas encourages Mickley to keep up her good work.

Wiegmann was nominated by Mrs. Ingrid Mattes, who describes Wiegmann as “a very kind, cooperative and hardworking student.”

Mattes also describes Wiegmann’s participation and work ethic.

“She actively participates in class even on days that no one else wants to participate. She works hard to get her assignments completed even when she is busy with family and extracurricular activities. Her flexibility and kindness are showcased in her willingness to partner with students who are difficult to work with.”

Mattes also shares that Wiegmann is a “very mature young lady who thinks logically and calmly.”
