Before announcing the starting lineups for the girls basketball game between Burrell and Highlands, the three seniors on the girls basketball team had the opportunity to recognize a teacher that they felt was most inspirational to them throughout their four years in high school, or their one semester in the case of foreign exchange student Pat Sampantanarak. Pat chose Mr. Wilpula as the most inspirational teacher she has had in the U.S. she was thankful for all of his help and support, always taking into account that English was not her first language.

Loren Sutlovich chose Mrs. Armstrong as the most inspirational teacher she’s had in high school. She commented on the fact that Mrs. Armstrong was like a second mother to her.

I chose Dr. Malobicky as my teacher to highlight. He is always dedicated to the success of his students and is always willing to support you when needed. Each senior was given the opportunity to escort their chosen teacher down the center of the court and present them with a certificate of appreciation.

Choosing just one teacher was difficult. So many of our Highlands teachers do an outstanding job every day and the girls basketball seniors were able to make one step toward showing our appreciation for them.
