Virtual instruction has been a new experience for most students, and Logan McDonald has risen to the challenge.

Logan, a fourth grader at Second Street School, is the WesBanco Student of the Week.

“During virtual schooling, Logan has remained focused, determined to learn and organized,” said Stephanie Starkey, a teacher at Second Street who nominated Logan. “He has a deep desire to learn, and it shows in his work ethic. He will never turn in an assignment that is not his best effort. 

“He always arrives to class on time and with a smile on his face. While this pandemic has been so hard on all of us as we are having to navigate this new adventure of virtual learning, he has never let this slow him down. His positive attitude inspires me through this adventure.”

Logan is the son of Taylor and Morgan McDonald. His sister, Alex, is in the second grade at Second Street.
