Brownstown recognizes Students of the Month



The Brownstown Central Community School Corp. Students of the Month were presented certificates during Monday night’s board of trustees meeting at the superintendent’s office.

Recognized were kindergartner Lela Sommers, sixth-grader Alexia Manns and junior Trey Hackman.

Lela was selected as Little Brave of the Month for good character by her teacher, Michelle Elliott, for always coming to school happy and with a positive attitude.

"She does everything that is asked with a smile on her face," Principal Chrystal Street said in reading Elliott’s comments. "She volunteers to help anyone, whether it’s something for the classroom or another student needing a helping hand. It is a blessing to have Lela in my class."

In nominating Alexia for the honor, the sixth-grade teachers said she personifies the William Shakespeare quote "Though she be but little, she is fierce."

"She makes her presence known in the classroom by showing outstanding work ethic and attitude," Principal Doug McClure said in reading the teachers’ nomination letter.

Alexia was a valuable member of the school’s new dance team and led the group in its first performance.

"She is an excellent role model for other students and is always willing to lend a helping hand," the teachers wrote. "She is friendly and outgoing and always has a smile on her face. She exemplifies the qualities of respect, responsibility and resourcefulness and is very deserving of this honor of BCMS Student of the Month."

Hackman was chosen for the honor by the high school social studies teachers. They said he is very involved in cross-country and track and the social studies Academic Super Bowl team while also focusing on his academics.

"Trey has challenged himself academically by enrolling and excelling in numerous Advanced Placement and dual-credit courses during his career at BCHS," Principal Joe Sheffer said in sharing the teachers’ comments.

In addition to his high school pursuits, Hackman brought national attention to the school by being one of 25 in the nation selected for a student ambassador position in the Back to Space program. The purpose of the program is to bring science, technology, engineering and math and space exploration back into popular culture.

"Trey Hackman serves as an excellent role model to his fellow students at Brwnstown Central High School," the teachers wrote.
