What teachers say about Jovie:
“Jovie is a quiet leader in class. She strives to do her best each day and is willing to help out anyone who needs assistance. Jovie genuinely cares for the people in her life and lets you know how much she cares by the little things she does and the kind words she shares with you.”
“Jovie is a lot better than me with technology. I can rely on her anytime to help me or others out. She does it with a smile and without hesitation.”
“Jovie embodies all four of our core values here at Southwest. She shows compassion to everyone around her and can collaborate with anyone. Jovie models integrity and respect with all of her choices. I am so impressed with her leadership in class and can only imagine what a good addition she is to the student council this year!”
