Senior makes hard work fun



May 1, 2018 - 11:00 PM

Iola High School senior Olivia Taylor will graduate this month with a 4.0 grade-point average, one of 10 seniors who can make that claim.

Olivia Taylor understands the importance of extracurricular activities. As most of this year’s crop of Iola High School valedictorians would likely agree, a lengthy list of activities on your high school resume looks good on scholarship applications.

Olivia wanted scholarships, of course, but that’s not the only reason she stayed involved. She wanted to be a good example to younger children.

“I want them to see you can have a life and be a fun person, and still do well in school,” she said. “You don’t have to be uptight and buttoned up to do well.”
