Ocean View High senior Micayla Shook is not one to crave individual attention, so there was something funny about having a whole ceremony dedicated to her accomplishments.
“It’s a pretty big deal out here today, Micayla,” Ocean View Principal Courtney Robinson said with a smile as she scanned the large crowd gathered Thursday on the school campus. “You might be a little important.”
In this case, the attention was certainly justified.
Shook, a three-sport star and team captain in cross-country, track and field and girls’ soccer, was the MaxPreps National Female Athlete of the Month for September. She was honored in a lunchtime ceremony at Ocean View.
