VFW Students Of The Month

Each month the local VFW and Auxiliary recognize students of the month from every school in Red River Parish.  The November 2022 public school students were introduced to the School Board on Monday.

They are Sage Demery from Red River Elementary, Ziyan Taylor Red River Academic Academy, Alyssa Young from Red River Junior High, and Rantravious Miller from Red River High.

Superintendent Alison Strong read their nomination statements.


                  Sage works hard every day to be her best. She is a shining light and is always sweet and helpful to her classmates and teachers.  Sage is an active participant in the classroom.  She is very engaged in her learning, and works hard to perfect her assignments every day.  Sage is a great student and friend, and is an absolute joy to teach and be around.  Mrs. Ogden


                  Ziyan is a great student! He strives for success in all he does. He consistently finishes his work on time and gives his very best on every assignment. He is a great friend and mentor to his peers. He treats his classmates, teachers and other staff with respect. Ziyan is committed to success and works extremely hard to achieve the goals set by his teacher and by himself.  All of these qualities make him stand out in a crowd. Congratulations, Ziyan, on a job well done!

Mrs. Bumgardner


                  Alyssa is a very smart, dependable student in all subjects, who often gets overlooked because she is also very quiet. She gives her very best at all times and when asked to assist with a task, she never hesitates to help.  She is a great example of what it means to be Student of the Month. – Ms. Grayson


                  As an educator, I love watching my students grow and achieve their goals. For the past four years, I have watched this young man grow into an accomplished and dependable leader.  He takes the initiative and volunteers when I am shorthanded; he leads his team efficiently and keeps them on track. His team respects him and loves his sense of humor.  He always lends a helping hand to other groups.  He plans ahead for the next week on Thursdays, sanitizing above and beyond, making sure everything is properly cleaned.  He is a hard worker, and dedicated not only to himself, but to selflessly helping his peers.  He is definitely a trailblazer; with his coach’s permission, he stepped out of the box and joined my Food and Nutrition class. He is an asset to Red River High School and my class.  I am happy to nominate him as December’s Student of the Month.  Mrs. Lemoine
