Hudson senior strives for 13 year perfect attendance record

Posted: Updated:
HUDSON, TX (KTRE) -

Loren Huffstetler walks the halls Hudson High School like any other senior.

But unlike any of her classmates, over the past 13 years she hasn't missed a single day of school.

 "She's done really well she's never been one to get up and say 'I don't want to go' she's always gotten up and gone to school without any problem," said Charlotte Huffstetler, Loren's mom.

Charlotte Huffstetler has made perfect attendance a priority for her daughter.

 "I had perfect attendance my last four years of high school and I just thought it would be something special that no one could take away from her," said Charlotte Huffstetler.

Loren says school is a great chance to be with friends and her passion for drill team and favorite class make school less of a chore.

"I've always been like in love with English and she always talks about stuff that's interesting like Hamlet, Shakespeare," said Loren Huffstetler.

 Charlotte says Loren has always had a good attitude about school attendance, but her final year was challenging.

"At the beginning it was just something that happened but towards my senior year, like I wanted to do senior skip day and stuff and they we're like no you should keep going," said Loren Huffstetler.

 Assistant principal Jeff Walker says Loren didn't achieve the perfect record on her own.

"I think it takes more than just the student, I think it takes a great family support and the support of the school providing a purpose for them to come up here and do well," said Walker.

 Charlotte hopes her daughter's perfect record will instill values for a lifetime.

 "Perfect attendance from school will also help her career because attendance is very important in work," said Charlotte Huffstetler.

Giving Loren something she'll always remember, even after graduation.

"It's a big accomplishment and it makes you feel good about yourself," said Loren Huffstetler.

    Perhaps it’s a bit ironic that it rains the day a solar power array, an arrangement of solar panels, is fully installed at Stephen F. Austin State University.

They know the sun will come out tomorrow or eventually. “The array will be the primary source and any surplus energy created by the array will back feed the grid,” explained Chris Renner, solar operation manager for Native Inc.
