Brownstown honors Students of the Month



Two girls and a boy have earned the title of Brownstown Central Community School Corp. Student of the Month.

During a board of school trustees meeting Tuesday night at the administration office, each of the school principals read a nomination letter while a picture of the student holding their certificate was shown on a screen.

Students and their family members typically would attend the meeting to be recognized, but that’s not occurring due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Brownstown Central High School honored junior Taylor Loudermilk as the world language Student of the Month. She was chosen by the school’s new Spanish teacher, Jeanette Yoder.

“Taylor has excelled in Spanish 3 this trimester in spite of personal adversity,” Principal Joe Sheffer said in reading Yoder’s comments. “I have been impressed with her efforts to not only learn Spanish but to use Spanish. She is learning in the classroom setting and beyond. She is a dedicated student and a delight to have in class. Congratulations, Taylor, on this well-deserved honor.”

The Brownstown Central Middle School eighth grade teachers chose Kassie Helton as Student of the Month for exemplifying “everything a Brownstown Brave should be.”

“She works hard, helps those around her and has a positive attitude, even when things are difficult,” Principal Doug McClure said in sharing the teachers’ comments. “This has been evident and on full display not only in the classroom but also at the Lady Braves Basketball Academy, where she has been a great role model to girls in grades 5 through 7. Kassie encourages her peers to do their best and isn’t afraid to try new things.”

The teachers also said Helton is always pushing herself to do the best she can and asks great questions that further her learning.

“Kassie is willing to go the extra mile, and her dedication inspires those around her to do the same,” the teachers wrote.

Along with excelling in the classroom, Helton participates in Tribal Council, volleyball and basketball.

“That smile exemplifies how she is as a young lady,” McClure said while looking at her picture on the screen. “Just one of the most pleasant persons that you could have in the school as a student but also just to get to know. She’s a terrific young lady.”

First-grader Aaron Broughton was selected Little Brave of the Month for sense of humor by his teacher, Abbi Young.

“If you have the pleasure of spending time with Aaron, you are sure to walk away with a smile on your face,” Principal Chrystal Street said in reading Young’s comments. “He has a sense of humor and an imagination that can brighten your day. If his joke does not work, he is always sure one more dab will do it. Aaron is a kid everyone should spend time with. His joy and happiness are contagious among his peers and anyone he encounters. Way to go, Aaron.”
