Hunter Faircloth is one of the top students in his class. "Since freshman year, I haven't had anything lower than a 98 on any of my grades," he said.

And this Savannah Christian senior admits he doesn't have to do a lot to maintain an amazing average."It just comes naturally. I don't really have to study to keep up with my grades."

In his environmental science class, he's doing quite well. In fact, his teacher, Bob Graham, says Hunter could almost take his place. "This is the first year I've had Hunter and he's quiet, but there's nothing I can talk about that he doesn't have background in," Graham said. "So it's kind of nice having him here.

Hunter has a packed schedule. In addition to his classes and homework, he's involved in a handful of activities. "I'm the co-president of the National Honor Society, the president of the Beta Club, chaplain of the Key Club, and the treasurer of the senior class."

Plus he's on the Ronald McDonald House teen board that raised $13,000 for charities during a bake-a-thon last year.

As for the future, Hunter wants to be a doctor. As for what kind, he'll decide when he heads to UGA next fall.

Right now, Hunter's Key Club group is organizing a food drive for the victims of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita.
