Our October 2017 student of the month at Alpha Omega Academy is Kenneth Clouser, a senior who lives in the Piedmont region of central North Carolina. According to math teacher Kevin Born, “he is the definition of hard work. I am so proud to have him as my student and love working with him every day. He is taking advantage of what AOA has to offer.”
My AOA Story
This is my 3rd year at Alpha Omega Academy. My mom heard about it from a friend. I was struggling with my classes my freshman year at my old high school. I needed a change, and AOA was the perfect fit. The flexibility is so nice. I am able to work at things at my own pace, and when I call my teachers or get help, I know they are focusing on me and not any other students like they would if I was in a public school.
My Favorite Subject
I never really liked algebra, but this year I’ve been calling my teacher every day to go over the lessons, and I’ve actually grown to like algebra.
My Learning Opportunity
I was surprised at how different AOA was from public school. I had to learn that somebody isn’t going to track me down and force me to turn in my work. I had to learn to be responsible and turn in my work on time.
My Family Life
I have one brother named Noah who is a freshman at our local high school, and we like to play games and mini golf.
I love to do technical things. Anything with production of photography has been a passion of mine since 6th grade. I love to go and explore new places, especially in the country. I also do some woodworking and I like to run.
My Future Plans
I am currently looking into a few things, such as lineman school. Working for the power company has peaked my interest.
My Dream Job
Being a technical director for a large church has always been a dream of mine. I love tech stuff and helping spread God’s word to others. I became involved in tech stuff at our church, and as I got older, they gave me more responsibilities. All of the things I have learned there have helped get me to where I am today.
My Words of Wisdom
Do your work, don’t be late, and always ask for help when you need it! Also, call your teachers often. Even if you don’t need help, it is still good to touch base with them and go over things.
