Abigail Garner

Waco High School

Q: What has helped you develop good study habits?

A: Realizing that my classes are harder this year. Now it’s not as easy to get valedictorian grades if you don’t study.

Q: Do you have any study tips to offer other students?

A: Write things down over and over. We had a test in biology that the entire class didn’t do well on, and the teacher had us write down each answer that we got wrong. That boosted my grade.

Q: Where is your favorite study spot?

A: Cameron Park by the river. Studying outside is peaceful.

Q: What is one thing you wish you’d known your freshman year?

A: I wish I would have known to try more extracurricular activities. That helps you see what you like and what to pursue. Don’t miss out on opportunities you won’t have after high school.

Q: What is the best lesson you’ve learned from a teacher?

A: Mrs. Davoust taught me to have a personal relationship with my teachers and to be friends with them.

Q: What are your school and community involvements?

A: I played basketball for three years, and I’m currently in track. I’m in National Honor Society, Fellowship of Christian Athletes and theater. For the community, I’m in Teen Leadership Waco. I’ve been playing the piano for nine years and play at Alliance Bible Church.

Q: How do you decompress from a stressful schedule?

A: I think playing the piano is relaxing. Normally, I don’t get stressed very easily.

Q: Use one word to describe yourself.

A: Joyful.

Q: What do you plan to do after high school graduation?

A: I plan to go to Baylor University. I’ll study art, English or history. I think I want to be a teacher.
