Student of the Month-January

The Student of the Month Program honored five accomplished college-bound senior students on Thursday, January 24, 2018.  The students were selected by their teachers for their character, integrity, love of learning, ability to persevere during challenging circumstances, community service and how they make a difference on their high school campus. 

The students and their families will attend a breakfast sponsored by numerous local businesses.  Principals and teachers from each high school shared stories about each of the students and students received numerous gift certificates from community businesses along with certificates of recognition, congratulations and encouragement from local, county, and state dignitaries.
