Brownstown honors Students of Month



Four girls recently were recognized by Brownstown Central Community School Corp. as Students of the Month.

Third-grader Destiny Price, seventh-grader Camryn Thompson and seniors Sarah Rollins and Sophie Kreis received certificates for their efforts.

This month’s topic for the elementary school was music, and Destiny was chosen by music teacher Lori Tabor.

“Destiny demonstrates high-level music abilities and skills,” Principal Chrystal Street said in sharing Tabor’s comments. “She shows leadership qualities.”

Camryn was selected by her seventh-grade teachers for embodying the three Rs of the middle school — respect, responsibility and resourcefulness.

“She is always respectful to her teachers and fellow students both in the classroom and outside the school,” Principal Doug McClure said in reading the teachers’ nomination letter.

“Her teachers all agree that she is a pleasure to have in class, and she is pleasant, kind and helpful to her fellow classmates,” they wrote. “Camryn regularly displays maturity and responsibility at school. She strives to accomplish every task that is assigned to her and continually pushes herself to do her best in all subjects.”

Beyond the classroom, Camryn excels in basketball and track and field and demonstrates all of the desired traits of a student-athlete — good sportsmanship, work ethic and desire to rise above any challenge, the teachers wrote.

“As a team, we are grateful for the example she sets for her peers every day at BCMS,” they said.

Rollins and Kreis were chosen for the honor by business teacher Robin Perry for winning the Jackson County Maverick Challenge and placing third in the regional of the high school business planning competition. They won a combined $2,750 for their concept for Romantique jumpsuits and rompers.

On Thursday, they participated in a state entrepreneurship competition at Wilson Education Center in Charlestown with a chance to win scholarships, internships, mentoring and cash prizes.

“These girls’ work in entrepreneurship class embody the principles of the Maverick Challenge — creativity, originality and invention,” Principal Joe Sheffer said in reading Perry’s comments. “They invented a hidden seam to allow jumpsuits and rompers to detach at the waist, creating a brand-new product. Their dedication to their work had already won them $2,750 so far and a chance to win more money in a state competition.”
