* What do you think is the biggest problem facing youth today?
"The biggest issue that youth face today is the encouragement of apathy and ignorance. Unfortunately, with the proliferation and popularity of media that encourage young people to commit gross acts of stupidity, it becomes increasingly acceptable to do foolhardy things. Students who work hard and strive towards lofty goals may be mocked, and this generation seems more and more apathetic to the issues that affect us all. Many of my peers seem to prefer their lack of understanding and knowledge to expending a small amount of energy to try and improve - if not the world - their own lifes."
The students in this weekly feature are selected by officials at their respective high schools. "Student Spotlight" recognizes students of good character who are involved in school or community activities such as athletics, clubs, student government and volunteer work.
