Two girls and a boy are the first to be recognized as Brownstown Central Community School Corp. Students of the Month for the 2019-20 school year.
During Tuesday night’s board of trustees meeting at the central administration office, senior Lauren Wood, seventh grader Bella Brown and first grader Sutton Sparks received certificates for being selected for the honor.
Wood was chosen by the high school science department.
"Lauren strives to learn every day and has an aptitude for science," Principal Joe Sheffer said in reading the teachers’ nomination letter. "Her willingness to work and help others allows her to stand out among her classmates. The science department wishes Lauren the best throughout her senior year and beyond. We all hope she continues to follow her passion for science as she furthers her education in the coming years."
Brown was selected by the seventh grade teachers at the middle school.
"Bella demonstrates responsibility at school every day," Principal Doug McClure said in sharing the teachers’ comments. "She arrives to class promptly with all of her materials and always has all of her work done."
The teachers also said Brown displays a willingness to help other students when they are struggling and doesn’t hesitate when placed in leadership roles.
"Bella is not only respectful to her teachers and coaches but also to her fellow students," the teachers wrote. "She presents great character and models the three Rs (respect, responsibility and resourcefulness) that our school tries to instill in all of our students."
Sparks was chosen as Little Brave of the Month on the topic of sense of humor by his teacher, Tonya Fee.
She said he always has a smile and something fun to share.
"He loves to learn and wants to share what he knows with people," Principal Chrystal Street said in sharing Fee’s comments. "He takes the art activities to a whole new level and cracks himself up with his drawings. He laughs at my lame attempts at jokes. He is a thinker. I love the jokes Sutton shares. He has a great laugh, and if you ever have a bad day, Sutton is the person that you want around. Everything is exciting and fun, and I love having him in class."
