Thanh Tran, daughter of Suong Thi Tran, is a senior at Ravenwood High School and this week’s Student of the Week.
One of Tran’s biggest passions is reading, specifically about healthcare and life skills. She also enjoys playing badminton.
Her favorite classes at RHS are ESL and Algebra II.
“I like to calculate and solve… I like ESL because Ms. Tracy helps me improve my English so well,” she said.
When asked to name one of her role models, Tran said she didn’t have one.
“I just live a life to help people as I can,” she said.
Tran’s ESL teacher, Tracy Baggett, said of her, “Thanh is a student who rises to challenges, and does so with a smile on her face. She displays great citizenship at RHS by assisting other students who are new to the country and learning English. She sets an example of excellence in behavior and cooperation. I am so proud of her positive attitude, tremendous growth and persistence.”
After graduating from RHS this year, she plans to attend Middle Tennessee State University to pursue a career as a registered nurse.
