PHOENIX - This week’s Head of the Class says she has known exactly what she was wanted to be since she was a little girl.

Nikole Gomez is an exceptional student who has made her mark on Washington High School with a serious work ethic and dedication to studying hard and being the best.

She is a graduating senior who plans on attending Arizona State University in the fall. And after college, she wants to be a high school English teacher.

Nikole’s dedication has paid off. She earned a full-ride scholarship to ASU and has spent more than 200 hours volunteering this school year alone.

Nikole also says that not only would she like to teach but would also like to eventually get her master’s degree and move into administration.

And who knows, maybe one day she will make it to principal of her own school.

Keep up the great work, Nikole!
