Class notes for March 2

Bernard named Teen of the Month


— Ramsey Bernard, a senior at Steamboat Springs High School, has been named the Optimist Club Teen of the Month for February.

Bernard, 18, is a four-year member of the high school's varsity tennis and ski racing teams. He is also a senior partner in the Partners in Routt County program and is a Link Crew member.

Bernard is ranked No. 1 in Colorado for 18-year-old boys singles by the United States Tennis Association.

"Ramsey has qualities of intelligence, leadership and motivation that set him apart from his peers, and a commitment to academics and to sports that would make him a tremendous asset to an organization that values such talents," said Deirdre Boyd, Bernard's advanced placement history teacher.

Bernard's success in the classroom is exemplified by his 4.2 GPA and his four-year presence on the high school's dean's list.

"I hope to get good grades at Pomona College and graduate in 2012, with cancer (research) in mind," Bernard said.
