CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - Each week during the school year, Project L.I.F.T. selects a student who is excelling not only in the classroom but outside as well. The student, along with their favorite teacher, is featured every Wednesday on WBTV News on Bounce at 8 p.m.
The program operates within the Charlotte-Mecklenburg School System.
This week's scholar is Sheridan Planter, a third grader at Thomasboro Elementary. She was previously featured as a Bounce scholar when she was in the first grade.
Sheridan is 8-years old. She has two brothers and two sisters, and is the youngest of her siblings. She is from Charlotte, NC and enjoys watching cartoon network and going outside to play with her friends.
Sheridan had the opportunity to meet Cam Newton in December at the school and was super excited. She even won the Courage award for third grade. The school says Sheridan is an outstanding student and excels in leadership within the classroom.
