Superior High School senior Allison Quick was recently rewarded for her volunteer work in the community with a $500 award to further her education at UW-Superior. She is the recipient of the Student Achievement Award, an award funded by the current and retired school district employees to help a community-minded student further his or her post-secondary education. Initiated in 1999, the award's main purpose is to reward a recipient who has demonstrated interest in volunteer service and commitment to the community.

Quick has spent more than 100 hours as a scholastic mentor to middle school students, volunteered at the Animal Rescue Foundation, Painted the Town in 2008, and has been in the Chamber of Commerce Youth Leadership Program for two years. Throughout high school, she has stayed on the A and B Honor Roll, served as a Junior Optimist in 2009 and traveled to Chicago to assist for an inner-city Chicago soup kitchen in 2008.

At UWS, Quick plans to attain a bachelor's degree in marine biology to prepare for a career in veterinary medicine.

Quick graduates from Superior High School June 5.

She is the daughter of Tom and Judy Quick of Superior.
