Congratulations to PHS senior, Sidra Ahmad, who was just named a 2017 Indiana Academic All-Star.
The future medical school student is finalizing her college plans, but an Indiana university is on the short list.
At PHS, Sidra is incredibly well-rounded, while maintaining a 4.8 GPA. She serves as Vice President of National Honor Society, is Secretary of the Student Government Executive Board, has been Math Captain of the Academic Super Bowl team, and Co-founded and is President of Food for Thought. The four-year soccer player is involved in DECA and the Interact and Key Clubs, in addition to numerous community volunteer programs.
Beyond her high school activities, Sidra volunteers in equally diverse and meaningful ways, but counts her recent mission trip to Guatemala as one of the most significant. While there, under the organization of Rotary International, she worked in a clinic providing medical aid to children and adults without health care.
Sidra has already received many high school honors, including National Merit Commendation, the President's Education Award, Excellence in Academic Achievement, and numerous PHS awards.
The Indiana Academic All-Star program is sponsored by the Indiana Association of School Principals, and recognizes forty Indiana Academic All-Stars at a luncheon next month. Honorees are invited to bring the school employee who has been most influential in their education, and Sidra has selected Mrs. Brenda Carter, now-retired from Central Elementary.
This outstanding young woman is a wonderful representative of Plainfield High School, and we are extremely proud of all she has accomplished. Congratulations Sidra!
