Adam Hey Named February Academic Achiever

West Chicago Community High School has selected senior Adam Hey of West Chicago as Academic Achiever for the month of February, 2019.

With a cumulative weighted grade point average of 5.542, Hey holds one of the top 10 GPAs among senior students at West Chicago Community High School. Hey is a member of National Honor Society, the Foreign Language Honor Society, has earned Academic All Conference honors, and has been on High Honor Roll every semester of his high school career. In addition, he was named WCCHS Student of the Month for December, 2018.

A scholar athlete, Hey is the captain of the football team, and also plays basketball, lacrosse and runs track. He is the officer of public relations for Student Council, is a substitute for the Math Team, and serves as a Student Ambassador.

When asked what he is most proud of in his achievements, Hey says, “I am most proud of the relationships I have been able to make with classmates and teachers. I’m happy to have been exposed to such a diverse environment to help myself grow not only as a student, but also a person.”

Hey shares the strategies he uses to balance his time:  “I try to stay off my phone as much as possible until all my homework is done. No matter what is happening on social media, I tell myself that it can wait.”

Hey has this advice for future WCCHS students, “Make the most of your time at Wego; it goes by way too fast. Don’t over-stress yourself, and make as many memories as you can with the people you care for most.”

Although still undecided on which college he will attend, Hey plans to major in Aerospace Engineering, hoping one day to work for NASA or SpaceX.
