JOSHUA M. WILLET, 13, son of Nora and Jim Willet of Tyrone Road in Westminster.

School: Eighth-grader at Friendship Valley Elementary School.

Honored for: Adjusting to being a new student by getting involved in activities, such as chorus, band, Future Homemakers of America and SHOUT (Students Helping Others Understand Themselves), and assuming leadership positions. Joshua transferred to Northwest last year after attending a Catholic school.

Goals: To be a veterinarian.

Comments: "The change was kind of difficult, but the first day, I made a bunch of friends. A lot of the friends I have now were the kids in my class that first day." He advises other children who will be switching schools "to just go in there and not be kind of shy, and participate in class."
