The New York State United Teachers - 7 News Academic All-Star for the week of May 1 is from Hermon-Dekalb Central School.
Paige Morrill is at the top of her class and and has been involved in many school activities, including Whiz Quiz, rock ensemble and National Honor Society.
She was active in sports, playing soccer and basketball, until she tore her ACL in her sophomore year.
The physical therapy she went through after her injury helped determine her choice of careers: occupational therapy.
She plans to go to Ithaca College, where she says they have an on-campus OT clinic and offer a great deal of hands-on experience.
