Cool Schools: Scotlandville Magnet High School
BATON ROUGE - Our Cool School this week is Scotlandville Magnet High School in Baton Rouge, where one senior has high standards for himself and his school.
Anthony Kenney has it all- good grades, a nice looking resume and a supportive family. He's the Band Captain of the marching band, President of the Student Government Association and even Junior Deacon at his church. His hard work has caught the attention of his fellow students.
"Anthony Kenney makes school more enjoyable," senior Tyler Williams told 2une In's Kylie Dixon. "Everytime we go on a trip, Anthony will pray and make everything seem more God-like. He brings something to the school that none of the other students have".
Anthony says he doesn't do it for himself. He puts Scotlandville Magnet High School as priority #1.
"I just love Scotlandville because a lot of my family came from here, and I want to continue that legacy of bringing it to new heights each and everyday," Kenney says.
"He loves his school and exudes confidence in his school," observes Principal Howard Davis.
With an acceptance letter from Southern University already in hand, he's still waiting on his letter from LSU. He'll have a tough decision to make when the time comes, but for now, he plans to enjoy his last few weeks at Scotlandville Middle Magnet.
