Jamie Mazurski Named May Academic Achiever

West Chicago Community High School has selected senior Jamie Mazurski of Winfield as Academic Achiever for the month of May, 2019.

With a cumulative weighted grade point average (GPA) of 5.474, Mazurski holds one of the top 10 GPAs among senior students at West Chicago Community High School. She has been on High Honor Roll every semester of her high school career. Mazurski is an Illinois State Scholar, a member of the Music Honors Society, and the Foreign Language Honor Society. She has earned Outstanding Performance in Mathematics, the AP Scholar Award, the President’s Education Award, and the highest achievement award in German.

A very involved student leader, Mazurski has served as a student leader for both Snowball and ROAR. She has been in band all four years, and is a drum major. Mazurski is also on the Math Team and the Scholastic Bowl, and has been part of the German exchange program.

When asked what she is most proud of in her achievements, Mazurski says, “My proudest achievement would include the leadership positions I have been able to attain this year, including drum major, ROAR director and Snowball leader. I was not outgoing as a freshman, and I am proud of where I am now, and how much I’ve grown as a person.”

Mazurski shares these time-management strategies:  “I try to schedule when I will complete my assignments, to balance with work and clubs. I also turn to music to relax.”

For future WCCHS students, Mazurski has this advice, “Join as many clubs and activities as you can, and try to make connections with others. I have grown immensely as a person because of the groups I have joined over the years. I would also say to work hard until the end, the success will pay off.”

With an interest in our oceans and love of working with animals, Mazurski plans to attend the University of Hawaii to major in Marine Biology and minor in Zoology.
