It is that time of the month again! Lee County’s 9th Grade Academy has yet again selected another group of amazing kids with outstanding academic achievement. In this group of kids there is one in Student of the Month in particular that has expressed a lot of excellence in school. Derrick Smith Junior is one of the sweetest, most kind hearted people in the 9th Grade Academy.
DJ is not only admired by his students but he is also admired by his administrators. According to Mrs. Emerson, “Derrick demonstrates positive behavior in and out of the classroom, is well-mannered, and respectful to both peers and teachers.” DJ not only displays exceptional character but, “he shows a strong effort to learn skills to the best of his ability.” DJ is a hard worker and always puts forth his best effort.
He is a wonderful example of a truly genuine person. He is loved by everyone. DJ has definitely deserved his position as Student of the Month for January!
