R.E.D. Hornets of the Month honored by MCSC

MEDORA — In its continued effort to promote responsibility, empathy and determination among students, Medora Community School Corp. honored its December R.E.D. Hornets of the Month during a board of school trustees meeting Wednesday night.

Those honored were Kayden Burrell, Shepard Earl and Nathan Ensey.

Burrell’s teachers honored him because of the intelligence and personality he displays in his classes.

“Kayden is creative and quirky and probably almost too smart. He always does the right thing, even when no one else does,” English/language arts teacher Christopher Sinnett wrote about Burrell.

“Kayden Burrell is a unique boy. He has a good imagination and artistic abilities. He is very respectful and polite to others,” social studies teacher Reuben Nehrt said.

Earl’s teachers recommended him because of his hard work in class, particularly in agriculture and trigonometry.

“Shepard is an outstanding agriculture student, excels in community service and was the FFA’s top seller in the fruit fundraiser,” ag teacher Adam Conklin said.

“I have Shepard for trigonometry, and he is doing a fantastic job in the class. He always has a good attitude and a strong work ethic,” math teacher Kyle Derheimer. “I am impressed with his determination to work through a problem until he has figured it out. His hard work is paying off. He currently has an A, and I’m super proud of him.”

Ensey was selected because of his hard work, attitude in class and desire to help others.

“Nathan is such a pleasant student to work with. He has such a positive attitude and tries hard in all he does. He strives daily to be a better student and person. I admire that in him,” special education teacher Mindy Autry said.

“Nathan is a pleasure to have in class. He is always up for helping others when needed. He is so polite and kind to everyone around him,” science teacher Leah Young said.
