For the winter issue, senior, Laura Courson, was chosen as The Squire’s Spotlight Student. Always staying busy, Laura is very active in school activities, including clubs like choir and Student Council. Outside of school, she enjoys dancing, something she has been doing for 13 years. With big plans for her future, she works hard in school by having a full schedule with some AP courses.
