Every month the administration at Milford Senior High School spotlights the success of one senior student. Students are nominated for their commitment to their education, their involvement in after school activities and the leadership that they bring to everything they do. October’s Senior Spotlight is Lindsay Shockley.

Shockley, a section leader for the flutes, is leading her school in the classroom, in the band and in the community. Lindsay said her primary focus at Milford Senior High School is to get her education and have fun along the way. “Friends come and go, but your education is something you keep working at that will never leave you,” Shockley stated. She is focused on completing her Arts and Sciences pathway at Milford and leading the band to a different tune.

Shockley is a musically talented student who plays the flute, guitar and the piano. Through her dedication to music, Shockley was promoted to the high honor of section leader. Her hard work does not go unnoticed. “Lindsay is such a wonderful student. She works hard and is so dedicated that it inspires me as a teacher,” Spanish teacher Mr. Voshell said.

Looking forward, Lindsay hopes to go to college and pursue a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology. Shockley also wants to continue on and complete her Master’s degree in Occupational Therapy. The two schools she is waiting on acceptance letters from are Shenandoah University and Desales University.

When asked about her favorite Teacher or Coach at the high school, Shockley said, “Mr. Voshell is my favorite teacher. He is my favorite teacher because, anytime you need anything Mr. Voshell is always there. He is laid back, but pushes me when he knows I can do better.”

Senior Lindsay Shockley’s determination and success at the high school can be summarized and explained by her favorite quote. “There is no need to be perfect to inspire others. Let people get inspired by how you deal with your imperfections.” Through that quote, she challenges herself and those around her to be the best they can be.
