Emily Deaton, daughter of Rachel Weller, is a freshman at Brentwood High School and this week’s Student of the Week.
She is a member of the Best Buddies program at BHS and volunteers at Morning Pointe assisted living in Franklin.
Deaton said of all of her accomplishments, her biggest is keeping good grades in school.
One of her biggest passions is country music. She said that she’s been to a few concerts she really enjoyed and CMA Fest for two years.
Her top role model is her mother. “She works hard to overcome difficulties in life,” Deaton said.
Deaton said that English with Ms. Spretnjak is her favorite class at BHS. She said that Spretnjak is always keeping her entertained and engaged in class.
After graduating, she plans to turn her volunteer experience into a full time job as a resident assistant.
