Student Spotlight - Williston

Posted: Updated:

"The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams."

That's the motto of the class of 2013 at Williston High School.

In tonight's Student Spotlight, we meet two of the top grads - who are dreaming of everything from music to plastics.

(John Bisbee, Williston Senior) "The faculty and staff here do a great job with setting us up for success. Sure the homework assignments might be a little long but they set us up to do well on tests and quizzes and set us up for great success."

(Tanner Ring, Williston Senior) "I've got a few teachers that are my favorites. Mr. Rook of course because I'm really into music and take a lot of music classes- I really enjoy what I do with that - Rook's a great teacher and good friend to all of us too. I enjoy POD and AP-gov, and AP-history I've taken with Mr. Mack - he's great. Of course Mr. Persky's a great guidance counselor. Liznee and all the people in the office are great too. I like music classes but I'm into chemistry too with Mrs. Olson."

(John Bisbee, Williston Senior) "Next year I will be attending college at the University of Mary in Bismarck studying music education and hopefully after that I can become a music director somewhere."

(Tanner Ring, Williston Senior) "I'm going to the University of North Dakota next year, but I'm not sure what I'm going to major in. I'm leaning towards chemical engineering and if that all works out I'm going to shoot for a job in the bio-plastics industry. I like the idea of that - non-oil-based plastics because we need oil for other things now, gas prices are pretty high so why waste it on plastic?"

Here's a list of students graduating with a perfect grade point average at Williston High School.

Congratulations to them, and to all 144 seniors who will be getting their diplomas at the graduation ceremony on May 26th in Williston.
