Congratulations Hunter Pilat, a recent graduate from Boiling Springs, SC. Hunter is one of our 2020 – 2021 Students of the Year. Hunter spent all four years of high school at SC Whitmore School (SCWS) and he was a great student each year.
“The reason I enrolled in SC Whitmore School in the first place was because it was the most recommended online school in South Carolina,” said Hunter. “Since it was the perfect choice, it’s also the reason why I have continuously enrolled in this school up until my final year. I wouldn’t want to spend it with any other school than the one I have had an amazing experience with.”
Dr. White, Hunter’s English teacher, saw on a daily basis how hard he is working.
“Hunter is one of the most amazing students I have ever encountered,” said White. “He is brilliant but also hardworking and conscientious. He truly seeks to leave everything better than he found it and has proven to be invaluable in the Edgenuity Pilot.”
Hunter enjoyed his experience at the SC Whitmore School.
“My experience has been great, ” said Hunter. “The teachers have been extremely friendly, and incredibly helpful. I love reading the feedback that the teachers have for my work, whether the feedback is pointing out errors, and giving me ways to improve, or congratulating me on the work I have done.”
At SC Whitmore Hunter was able to stay on track with his assignments by using a schedule for the week.
The SCWS Principal, Ebone’ Adams, also saw how hard he worked in his classes.
“Hunter volunteered to be part of the Pilot Pioneers program with Edgenuity and has provided lots of thorough feedback to help with the student experience, ” said Admas.
In the future, Hunter plans to attend Full Sail University and earn a degree in Game Design.
“For my career goals, I want to become a game developer, ” said Hunter. “It’s always been my dream to create games, and given the current state of the industry right now, I feel like the ideas I have can pull most of it out of the gutter. Games have played a large role in my life, I don’t know what it is with me, but I have grown attached to the gaming industry, and want to dip my hands in it.”
In his free time, Hunter likes to play video games and write stories for fun!
“My advice for new SCWS students would be to ask for help, ” said Hunter. “Even if you don’t want to, and even if you feel like you “almost have it,” or you think the teacher will take too long to respond; it’s better to ask for help than to sit there and struggle. So, to reiterate, there is no shame in asking for help, you’re better off having the teacher help you than continuing to struggle with a question.”
Hunter, we are very proud of all your accomplishments! Best of luck in your future endeavors!Back to School News
