School Board Recognized Students of the Month

The September students selected from four Red River schools were recognized before the October meeting of the School Board.  Superintendent Alison Strong read their nominations from faculty and staff.

Red River Elementary Student is BRAXTON CALHOUN.  He was nominated by Mrs. Sutton and Mrs. Briggs.

Braxton is a 4th grade student at Red River Elementary School.  He is a very polite, respectful, hard-working young man. Braxton is always ready to learn and to do whatever it takes to reach his goals. He completes his work and never complains.  He is a joy to have in the classroom.

Next up, Strong read the nomination for AUBRYIEL ALLEN from Red River Academic Academy.  She was nominated by Mrs. Pickett.

What can I say about sweet Aubryiel? She is a great student and a joy to have in class.  Aubryiel is always willing to do anything I ask of her. She works hard and isn’t discouraged when the work is a challenge for her.  She comes into class always ready to learn and participate in our classroom activities.  Aubryiel is respectful and kind to her classmates and teachers. She is a great example for her peers and even for the adults around her. Her sense of humor really makes her fun to be around and makes her classmates comfortable, even when things get tense between different students. Aubryiel’s sweet, smiling face is one of the reasons I love being a teacher.

From Red River Junior High, Strong introduced RHIANNA MILLER.  Her nomination was written by Mrs. Wimberly.

Rhianna was selected by the 6th grade teaching team as RRJH Student of the Month. She demonstrates many leadership qualities as she encourages and helps her fellow classmates. Her eagerness and willingness to help others is refreshing to her teachers. Rhianna also demonstrates a desire to learn new concepts as she asks questions and responds well in her classes. Her writings are well thought out and prove interesting to the teachers.

And the student selected from Red River High School is CHRIS GAY.  Assistant Principal and Athletic Director Norman Picou nominated Gay.

Chris Gay has had one of the most impressive turnarounds as a student that I have seen in my 21 years of education.  Chris has become a model student and leader on our campus. He is performing exceptionally well in the classroom and has not had any discipline issues. We are extremely proud of the growth this student has and is showing.

Student of the Month is a community project of the local VFW Post and Auxiliary 7287.  Each student selected is presented a certificate and a gift card to a local restaurant.  Outstanding students in all schools in the parish are honored each month during the school year by the local Veterans of Foreign Wars.  To learn more about the VFW and Auxiliary call 932-6557.
