CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Meet Riddick McCabe. A 10th grade student at Central High who is hard at work looking to make his imprint in the classroom With a GPA of 3.9, which ranks him in the top 15% of his class.

“I want to be on top of everything and I want to prepare for the future that’s ahead of me, and I want to make a change in the community that’s around me,” Central High School, student, McCabe said.

“He is involved with AVID and Green Club at Central High School,” members of the selection committee said. “Riddick was nominated as the Student of the Week because he is service-oriented and community minded.”
