Julia Clukey, US National Luge Champion, came to visit the Wildcats recently. Her achievements and perseverance are impressive, facing both setbacks and breakthroughs to earning Olympic silver. Her career began when she entered a luge contest as a youth because of a t-shirt she would receive by participating. Not only did she get a t-shirt, she also captured a spark that keeps glowing in the message she shares with students. She encouraged us to always try new things, to be resilient and, above all, to have courage. At the end of the assembly, Julia Clukey presented her courage award to our very own Hailey Gerrish. Hailey was selected by school staff as a student who works hard, has a positive attitude and continues to push herself everyday to be better while also helping others. We are very proud to call her a Wildcat!
