The Red River Schools Students of the Month for September were recognized at the October meeting of the Red River Parish School Board. Students were nominated by their teachers for their academic and leadership abilities.
Allie Kellogg is the student selected from Red River Elementary School. Allie is an exceptional young lady and a model student. She is a hard worker and sets high expectations for herself. She is willing to help anyone at any time, and gets along with all students. Allie participates in class discussions and always does her best to complete her assignments. She is not only a good student she also plays softball and gives the boys a run for their money while playing football. She is a joy to have in the classroom and an excellent choice for September’s Student of the Month. She was nominated by Mrs. Briggs.
The student from Red River Academic Academy is Braylon Johnson. Braylon is one of the sweetest and most respectful students I have even had the pleasure of teaching. He is a hard worker and doesn’t complain about working or doing extra to keep the class moving. He is kind to all his classmates and teachers. Braylon has a funny personality and has a great way of making those around him feel welcomed and wanted. I know Braylon has a bright future ahead of him! Mrs. Pickett wrote his nomination.
Jadavion Banks was selected as Student of the Month for Red River Junior High. He is very dedicated to his studies, very respectful towards his peers and teachers, and has exemplary behavior in and out of the classroom. He always gives his very best effort and is always willing to help his classmates. Mr. Banks embodies the qualities of a model student, and we are proud to celebrate his accomplishments and character as September Student of the Month.
And from Red River High School, Coach Lindsey nominated Caitlyn Jones for Student of the Month. As her assistant principal and athletic director, I can attest to her academic excellence, her strong peer relations, her varied experiences in and out of school, and her commitment to excellence and life-long learning. Not only does Caitlyn excel in the classroom, she also maintains an outstanding work ethic as a member of the Lady Bulldogs Varsity Volleyball team. The dedication it takes to be a scholar as well as a student-athlete is challenging, but Caitlyn meets that challenge with dedication, determination and focus. She is a member of 4-H, Varsity Volleyball and is enrolled in our CNA program. Caitlyn has availed herself of leadership opportunities like being a mentor to freshman students. She is versatile and accomplished, and a great ambassador both to her school and to her community. I am happy to name her as Red River High School’s September Student of the Month.
Superintendent Alison Strong presented each student with a certificate of recognition and a gift certificate to Lott Oil/Chevron. Representing the VFW and Auxiliary 7387 were Barry McCoy, John Brewer and Dawn Brewer. Students of the Month are recognized each month throughout the school year.
