  • Kyle Kiper is the senior Top Topper for the month of March at Hillsboro High School and is the son of Dawn Shryock.  Kyle plays for the HHS soccer team in the fall and the HHS baseball team in the spring.  His grandpa motivates him to succeed in life by always giving him great advice.  Kyle is not a big fan of books but if he does read it usually has something to do with sports.  Kyle's favorite class is Reader's Response because Mrs. Powell brightens up his day.  Kyle's advice to other students is "might as well have while you can" and his inspirational quote is: "You don't have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great."  After high school, Kyle plans to attend Blackburn College and major in law enforcement. 

  • Hope Newberry is the daughter of Jeff and Ilona Newberry and has been chosen by administration at HHS this month to be the Top Topper for the junior class.   Hope's favorite class is Agriculture and in her spare time she spends time with her nephews and rides horses.  At HHS, Hope is involved in soccer and FFA.  Her favorite music genre is country and her mom and dad motivate her in life to be successful at whatever she chooses to do.  Her advice to other students is to act like you are in high school, not grade school.  She likes the quote "every accomplishment starts with the decision to try" and she would like to give a shout out to Mrs. Niemeier for helping her this year.  After high school Hope hopes to pursue a degree to become a registered nurse. 

  •  Megan Schmidt is a sophomore at HHS and has been chosen to represent her class this month as the Top Topper.  Megan's favorite thing to do is spend time with her friends.  She would like to give a shout out to Mr. Morford because he is a great counselor and helps her push through so many things in life and school.  Megan's inspirational quote she likes is "just keep swimming".  Her advice to other students is to try your best and you will make it.  Her mother motivates her to succeed in life.   After high school Megan's plans are to go wherever life takes her. 

  • Jordan Elliott is the son of Chester Elliott and Lisa Holden and has been chosen as the Top Topper for the freshman class this month of March.  Jordan's favorite class at HHS is science.  He enjoys drawing, reading horror books, and listening to rock music in his spare time.  He is also involved in FFA. Jordan says his friends and family motivate him to succeed in life and his advice for other students is to forget the past and look for the future.  His inspirational quote is "every action has a consequence" and he would like to give a shout out to Morgan Holtgrave because he knows she can be a really nice person.  After high school Jordan would like to go on vacation to Mexico.
