Student Spotlight - Gracie Bradley

There are hundreds of kids at Norwalk High School that continue to make a difference everyday. Whether it is playing a sport, being involved in the music or art departments, participating in student government, creating a club, or helping others within the community, these students deserve to be recognized by their teachers and peers. Every issue, there will be a new student featured in this column who has impacted NHS in extraordinary ways. The Student Spotlight for the December issue is Grace Bradley (’17).

So far, Grace has been enjoying her senior year experience. Here at NHS, Bradley has been taking both AP and Honors classes, including AP Environmental Science and her second year of AP English. However, although she has had a positive experience so far, it being her final year at NHS, she admits, “It’s definitely bittersweet because I’ve loved my experience here but I’m definitely ready to move on.”

“I’ve had a very positive experience at Norwalk High School. I like that you’re able to – that I can find things that I’m interested in.” She continues by saying how she likes the different outlets offered. “I like the diversity and how if you want to succeed and go down a path of being involved you can.” Grace’s college application process has been going as planned, finishing all of her applications early. When asked about her major, Bradley adds, “I’ve loved each school I’ve been at” and would perhaps want to be an Elementary school principal. Because of the fact that she does not have much family here in Connecticut, she states that she “wants something different” to see what she likes best, considering to head South. However, she adds that she had nothing against Norwalk, therefore, she is not against coming back.

Bradley is involved with numerous activities and clubs within NHS. These include: being the president of the National Honors Society, a member of Bears Beating Cancer, as well as Chambers Choir, making her a part of Norwalk’s most well known holiday concert, Candlelight. Grace has also been a part of “Project Lead The Way” (PLTW) which is a series of engineering courses, taught by Mrs. Morrison. NHS has their annual Bear Flop fundraiser once every school year. In fact, Grace had won the competition her sophomore year. She states, “I’m involved with field hockey and lacrosse,” (senior captain for both,) and for the annual Bear Flop event of the 2016-2017 school year, the entire field hockey team will be participating.

As one can clearly see, Bradley has impacted NHS in several inspirational ways, but she has also had a positive effect on the Norwalk community as a whole. “I sing at my church,” and “I work at a florist.” She adds that some of her interests include sports and helping others. However, neither of those top the fact that throughout her entire high school career, Bradley has been working with special needs kids at her church as well as a youth group just out of New Canaan, which led to her senior project explore. Bradley has been an ideal student, athlete, and member of the Norwalk community. She has inspired many with her work ethic and service, and therefore deserves recognition in her contributions and accomplishments. NHS wishes the best of luck to Bradley in all of her future endeavors.
