Brownstown Central Community School Corp. has resumed its Student of the Month program.
The last time students were honored during a board of trustees meeting was in March, and then the COVID-19 pandemic forced schools to close and switch to eLearning.
The program restarted for the first time in the 2020-21 school year during Tuesday night’s meeting at the administration office.

Each of the school principals read the nomination letter while a picture of each student holding their certificate was shown on a screen. Students and their family members typically attend the meetings to be recognized, but Superintendent Tim Taylor said it was done differently due to the pandemic.
Senior Faith Harrison was chosen as the high school’s science honoree for the month.
"Faith is a bright, conscientious and caring young lady that is deserving of this honor," Principal Joe Sheffer said in reading the science teachers’ comments. "Faith holds herself to a high standard academically and always wants to learn more. She has a drive and desire to further her knowledge in all fields of science. Congratulations, Faith, on this well-deserved honor!"
Sixth-grader Tyler Wetzel was chosen by the sixth grade teachers as the middle school’s Student of the Month.
"Tyler has been a mature and respectful sixth-grader since Day 1," Principal Doug McClure said in sharing their comments. "Being one of the first sixth-graders to miss multiple days of school in the beginning due to no fault of his own, he proved his resilience and drive to do well in school."
During that time, Wetzel remained caught up on his assignments without having to be reminded by his teachers, even emailing and messaging to ask questions, the teachers wrote.
"When he returned to school, he was ready to join right back in with his classmates," they said. "Even though he missed out on seating arrangements, organizing binders, practicing his locker combination, he did not become overwhelmed and had a pleasant, respectful attitude. This is what it means to be resourceful and responsible. The sixth grade teachers are proud to have Tyler representing our school. Way to go, Tyler!"
Fourth-grader Abigail Watson was named the elementary school’s Little Brave of the Month for best listener. She’s in Adam Disque’s class.
"Abbie has been a true leader in the largest elementary class at BES," Principal Chrystal Street said. "She is always attentive and where she needs to be during the day. She has proven herself to be a hard worker and good student. Classmates have discovered that Abbie is someone they can count on to help them be where they need to be. Mr. Disque says that it is a pleasure to have Abbie in his classroom. Congratulations, Abbie!"
