NHS faculty nominated Matthew Edwards for their Knights Making a Difference program this week.
Matthew Edwards, son of Ken and Melissa Edwards, is a junior at Nolensville High School and this week’s Student of the Week.
He is a member of the football team and is involved with the STEM program at NHS.
Edwards said that he is most proud of achieving a starting position on the football team as well as scoring high on the math portion of the ACT.
His favorite teachers at NHS are the Lifetime Wellness teachers.
“They inspire me to be the best I can be,” Edwards said.
One of his biggest role models is professional football player Larry Fitzgerald. He said he admires him because “he is a man of high character.”
NHS Lifetime Wellness teacher Paul Derrick spoke highly of Edwards’ ability to connect to classmates and willing attitude.
“He has shown great leadership and has been a very positive influence on the other students in the class,” Derrick said. “He always comes to class with a positive attitude and gives great effort in everything he does. Matt’s positive attitude and willingness to include others has really helped to create a nurturing environment as well as a great example for the ninth graders to follow.”
After graduating from Nolensville High, Edwards plans to attend college to pursue a degree in mechanical engineering.
