A Bladensburg High School senior was named Prince George’s County’s Scholar of the Week last week.
Leah Woody earned a 3.94 GPA while enrolled in her school’s biomedical program and participating in various extracurricular activities. She has played on the varsity tennis and volleyball teams and was a member of the varsity swim team. Woody has also earned 385 student service hours, according to the school system.
Woody has completed internships at the United States Mint headquarters in Washington, D.C., the last two summers.
Seniors are selected by their school’s principal and guidance counselor, and must have a GPA of 3.5 or higher to qualify for Scholar of the Week, said ShaVon McConnell, Prince George’s County Public Schools spokeswoman.
Woody and other Scholar of the Week recipients winners will be acknowledged in the Prince George’s County Board of Education Awards Program on Dec. 10.
