Unlike many students her age, 17-year-old Cassandra Anderson loves school.
Anderson takes tremendous pride in her studies. At Stevens High School, she is ranked No. 27 and will try to move up the ranks when she begins her senior year in the fall.
She was a member of her middle school’s National Junior Honor Society and is now in her high school’s National Honor Society.
She also was inducted into the Quill and Scroll, an international honor society for high school journalists.
“Knowledge is essential to one’s success,” Anderson said. “It does not matter what environment you acquire it from or how you come across it. What does matter is how you choose to use it.”
She would like to attend a college in Texas, perhaps San Antonio College, to major in journalism and minor in either history or English.
Anderson said her free time usually consists of studying in the library, reading “Harry Potter” or writing for the Stevens High School newspaper.
She considers herself a studious person who enjoys some of the more “nerdy” things in life. Over the years, she has taken a keen liking to comic books.
Some of her favorite superheroes include Electra, Wolverine, Batman, Thor and Wonder Woman.
