Abby Smith is Cosmos Student of The Week
Our Cosmos Student of The Week is Abby Smith from Benton Middle School.
She loves Science and competes in Science Olympiad. She's also in the school's color guard team, and is the student council president.
This 14-year-old is bubbly, intelligent and hardworking.
Her Science teacher, Becky O'Neil says she's a role model to her peers.
"She was great in class, always handling her business, a person who motivated students, and always handled her business and made sure everybody else was handling theirs."
She broke her leg last year and went into surgery.
The hospital staff took good care of her, which inspired her to get into the medical field.
"I want to make them feel more comfortable, like fixing to go into surgery. I don't want them to be all freaked out and nervous, so i was hoping to be able to help just calm them down."
