Levett featured in magazine


Kalvin Levett, a student at Tallassee High School, is honored as a Teen Spotlight in Potential Magazine for excelling in his academics and leadership.

At Tallassee High School, Kalvin is a member of the basketball, baseball, football, and track and field teams. He explained, “Playing sports keeps me busy, and it also gives me the opportunity to meet really great people. It’s just something I love to do.” As a result of his involvement and excellence in sports, Kalvin has been able to join several prestigious teams outside of school, including the All Metro Auburn/Opelika Football Team, the All Area Football Team, and the All Metro Track and Field Team. He is also a member of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. He excels not only in sports but also in academics— he is consistently listed on the A/B Honor Roll, serves as a peer mentor, and has received the Perfect Attendance Award for four years in a row.

Potential Magazine is a multimedia resource for parents of college-bound teenagers. In each issue, high achieving students in the 7th-12th grade are featured and entered to win the $500 "Reach Your Potential" scholarship awarded in January and May.

Teens are recommended by their school or community leaders for excelling in one or more of the following areas: academics, business, leadership, philanthropy, overcoming adversity, citizenship and community service, athletics, and the arts. Potential Magazine's advisory board chooses teens to feature in each issue and select the scholarship winner in May from each of the finalists.
