Senior and Eagle Award winner Georgia Grosch has played an important part in capturing moments from every event imaginable.
“I’ve liked photography ever since I could remember, but I didn’t take it seriously until my sophomore year, when I found out I could possibly make a living out of doing it,” Grosch said.
After being nominated by Drake and Cyndy Gilbert, Grosch won the 2011 Eagle Award. This award is given to one senior who is considered outstanding in all areas in the high school.
Grosch has been on the yearbook staff for two years and works five hours a week as the lead photographer.
Art teacher and yearbook sponsor Dr. Lee Drake called her “the driving force behind the yearbook.”
“Being a part of yearbook is the best thing I’ve done,” said Grosch. “I’ve gotten to take pictures, meet new people, gain new experiences and get more involved in school.”
Grosch has won other awards and been recognized. In November, she was the Senior of the Month, and in her junior year, she received the Top Hat Award.
“It means a lot,” said Grosch. “I was in shock. I was up against a lot of great students.”
“My experiences at Webster have been wonderful,” said Grosch, “but I’m sad to be leaving.”
“Because of her, every student has the opportunity to appear in the yearbook,” said Drake.
Grosch also works in the school’s main office during the summer and after school.
Grosch wishes to pursue a career in photography and film.
“She is a vital part of the student body,” said Drake. “Her contributions to the yearbook will be remembered for a very long time.”
