SOUTH WHITLEY — The following students were recognized by the Whitko School Corporation as February students of the month:
Meghanne Jones – Whitko High School
Meghanne is a great all-around student! She is always on task, willing to help others, and completes all of her work on-time. Meghanne is a genuinely nice girl, who is kind to other students, and respectful at all times. She is busy with FFA and softball, but always prepared for class. I have really enjoyed having her in class.
Meghanne was nominated by Substitute Staff Member, Cheri Bryan
Maggie Wolf – Whitko Middle School
Maggie was selected for her positive attitude and strong work ethic. She gets up daily at 5:30 rain, shine, or snow to take care of her cattle. In cross country she was a supportive team member, always cheering on her team. She was injured but still gave 100 percent and tried to improve every meet. In the classroom she is respectful of all her teachers and students as well. She is never in trouble and is focused on doing her best.
Maggie was nominated by teacher, Rochelle Leininger
Treyson Bradley – South Whitley Elementary School
Treyson is one of those quiet children that you might not notice at first. If you take the time to get to know him, however, you will find out that he has an amazing sense of humor, a caring heart, and a huge capacity for kindness. In class, Treyson is always on a mission to get his work finished. He sticks with things that aren’t easy for him without giving up or complaining. He was the biggest donor in our class during the food drive and recently brought in money from his own piggy bank to sponsor another student for roller skating. Treyson lives by the principles of “Do the right thing” and “Treat people right”. I am happy to have him in my class and proud to say that he is part of Whitko.
Treyson was nominated by teacher, Gina Vardaman.
Audra Brandenburg – Pierceton Elementary School
Audra Brandenburg has made a positive impact on our school in so many ways. Audra embodies kindness and compassion. When we think of Audra, 1 Corinthians 13 comes to mind- Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Audra recently stepped in and started volunteering in the learning commons, ably filling the deputy librarian role that was recently vacated. She is a bright and welcoming face as students come into the Learning Commons. She is helpful and kind- students at all grade levels feel comfortable asking her for help. She is consistent, pays attention to details, and is responsible in her roles of deputy librarian. Audra was chosen as an ambassador in our new student leadership program. She was chosen for this program for many of the same reasons already mentioned. As a part of this role, she visits a lower grade classroom on a regular basis to teach lessons on character, lead the pledge, and be a positive role model in that classroom. She exhibits outstanding academic achievement and has a positive impact on the culture and climate of Ms. Kinney’s class. I would like her to be our nominee for student of the month next month.
Audra was nominated by teacher, Hilary Stouder.
