VFW Students Of The Month for February 2023

The Students of the Month from the four public schools in the parish were introduced to the Red River School Board last Monday.  Superintendent Alison Hughes read the nomination statements for each student.

Student from Red River Elementary School is Jamason Morse.  His nomination stated:

Jamason Morse is an awesome second grade student. He participates in our CKH Good Things most mornings, and he always has something positive to share. He works hard to keep up with his lessons. Jamason’s manners are top-notch! He is enthusiastic when it comes to class participation and is always a great peer partner. Jamason faces any challenge with a great attitude, and he is well-liked by his classmates. I love that Jamason shares his love for Jesus with me when he tells of all his experiences and adventures with his church group. I consider my self lucky to be Jamason’s second grade teacher.

The student from Red River Academic Academy is Landyn Bamburg

Landyn is my choice for student of the month because he is a great kid. Landyn is as country as a butterbean and would love to spend his day working on motors and being outside. Even though school might not be his favorite place to spend his day, he always comes ready to learn and work hard. The improvement that I have seen in Landyn is what a teacher really loves to see.  Landyn has made up his mind that he wants to succeed and he is working hard to make that happen. He pays attention in class and participates in all the lessons. He has mastered the ”productive struggle” that is such an important part of learning. He has learned that the best way to learn is by making mistakes and learning how to fix them. Landyn deserves this recognition because he is truly one of the hardest working students in my class.

Red River Junior High Student of the Month is Jessica Williams

Superintendent Strong said there were submissions from 2 teachers for Jessica, one from Mrs. Humphrey and one from Mr. Houston, her band instructor.  Mrs. Humphrey says “I have the pleasure of teaching Jessica at Red River Junior High School. Jessica is a wonderful student that is a joy to teach. She comes to school every day with a beautiful smile on her face and ready to learn. Jessica is the type of student that is eager to learn and brings a breath of fresh air to the classroom.  It is a delight to be Jessica’s teacher because she exhibits all the qualities of a successful student.”

From Mr. Houston, “It is with great pleasure that I select Miss Jessica Williams as RRJH Student of the Month for February. Day in and day out, she brings her A game. A positive attitude and confidence are key factors in her pursuit of success.  Whenever faces with challenges, Jessica always finds a way to triumph in her journey. Her razor-sharp focus helps set a high standard of excellence among her peers. Great job, Jessica, and keep up the good work.”

The Student of the Month from Red River High School is Cayla Thompson.  Her nomination said:

Cayla is a senior who stands out from her peers because of her commitment to learning and her willingness to take initiative to accomplish her goals. As co-editor of the Bulldog 2022-2023 yearbook, she has created a sense of teamwork and established a work ethic that is a positive example for her peers and classmates. In addition, I can always count on Cayla to engage with the material in English class, and to hold herself and others to a high standard. She takes initiative and has already been accepted into the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor, where she plans to major in Biology and has received approximately $46,000 in scholarships. She was nominated by Mrs. Bennett, English Instructor.

Each month the Coushatta VFW Post and Auxiliary 7287 award a student of the month from each school in the parish.  They are presented with a certificate and gift card to Lott Oil/Chevron.  VFW member Guy Breider represented the Post and presented the certificates and gift cards.
