The Heather Cannon Wildcat of the Week is Po-Hi freshman Ashley Marquez.

“There are times for all of us when life hands us lemons, rather than lemonade,” said Superintendent Shelley Arrott. “Ashley has recently experienced some challenges in her life, but during these challenges she maintained an extremely positive attitude, not only at home, but also at school. She demonstrated that she is a great team player by rallying around her siblings and her family with support during these tough times. Ashley has shown she has fortitude and grit because she kept her eye on her goals and was a pillar of strength even in the face of adversity.

“The lemons have turned to lemonade for Ashley and her family. I am so proud of her for using the characteristics of the Wildcat Way to guide her through difficult times. Thank you, Ashley, for showing such great leadership skills even during a stressful time in your life. We all face challenges and you are a great role model to everyone. You are an amazing person, sister, and Wildcat!”
