Just Juniors: Do-It-All Meghan Claar


Star Athlete, Astounding Artist, and Impressive Intellectual. These are all words to describe the junior Meghan Claar. She is one of the top students at Bellwood-Antis High School and her artistic contributions to the school will go down in history as some of the best these halls have seen. Meghan is the daughter of Adam and Kristine Claar.

Meghan participates in LEO Club, National Honors Society, and Yearbook. Her time outside of school is spent on her sports: cross country, basketball, and track. She also enjoys art, mainly focusing on painting and drawing.

Junior Adam Osborne, one of Meghan’s friends, commented on Meghan as a person.

“She’s a really quiet and shy person before you actually get to know her. If you invest the time to befriend her you will really get a good friend. She is a really kind and good person,” he said.

Miss Kimberly Trostle has Meghan for AP Literature this year.

“Meghan is, by far, one of the most outstanding students that I have taught,” Trostle stated. “Bright, diligent, and caring! I have enjoyed having Meghan in class for the past two years. I know she will accomplish great things in life!”

Meghan: AP Lit; it was really cool to have a reading and discussion-oriented class.
