Every week, we are proud to show you an athlete doing great in the classroom and on the field.
This student raises the bar on the whole thing.
She balances two demanding extracurricular activities, attends class at West Laurens and picks up some college credits at a different campus to boot.
Emily Barrs is our Athlete of the Week.
Most times you will see Emily Barrs with a smile on her face.
Her teacher, Danny Johnson, even admits she's a class clown, but he doesn't mind.
"You can really tell when you grade her work that she truly cares, and the class clown façade, she's really listening to you even though she's smiling all the time and trying to crack a joke in there," Johnson said with a smile himself.
Barrs gets a little leeway because of her perfect transcript.
It's a schedule that has a good many honors and advanced courses, but doesn't sport one "B" in the mix.
