Staff comment: “Winter is the personification of conscientious effort, diligence and loyalty. If I could just give her the grade of “B” to help take the pressure off her high expectations. Winter has been all spring and summer as far as I am concerned. Her respect and commitment in class and on the court have been tremendous. I look forward to seeing where such drive will lead her.” Bruce Newman, junior high history and girls basketball coach, Evergreen Christian School
