This week Students of the month for the past quarter were celebrated at Magnolia Bend Academy. Officers of the local Veterans of Foreign Wars post 7287 presented Jaxon Townsend, Raelynn Edwards and Harley Cobb were presented certificates and gift cards to Lott Oil/Chevron.
Jaxon Townsend was selected as Magnolia Bend Academy’s October Student of the Month. Jaxon was nominated by not one but three of his teachers for this award. Jaxon, a 6th grader, is the son of JC and Nora Townsend. Mrs. Kendria Sanders describes him as the most helpful kid who shows a large amount of initiative. In class, they discussed starting a garden area at school to attract birds and butterflies. Jaxon took it upon himself to solicit donations for free plants to get the garden started. Jaxon then proceeded to help dig every hole and also demonstrated to each of his fellow classmates how to do it as well. Jaxon considers the maintenance of the garden his duty and completes those tasks without having to be told. According to his other teachers, he is very faithfully focused on his Bible classes and is always eager to help any fellow student that may need help with their work. Every teacher at MBA knows that they can count on Jaxon to help them, all they have to do is ask.
The November Student of the Month, Harley Cobb. is a Junior. She is the daughter of Karis Cobb. Harley was nominated by Mrs. Freeman and Dr. Land for her outstanding initiative to do her very best during her junior year.
