STOM Spotlight: Jada Jones

Written by Maria Cerrone

Mrs. Lowry chose Jada Jones for Student of the Month. She felt that “Jada always puts forth her best effort in class and works very hard to excel academically.”

Jones loves to swim and read on her free time. She said that she has been having a great time at the 9th grade. She thinks that the best part about the 9th grade campus is that it is just 9th graders. She said it helps that you aren’t mixed in with the upper campus so that you get the chance to get used to high school.

During Jones’s interview she stated that she shows Trojan Pride in her everyday school day by helping people whenever they need it and getting her work done. Jones feels that her peers can do the right thing by choosing pride everyday. She expressed that students “should actually understand what it means rather than just knowing it is the school’s slogan”.

Jones said that her favorite class is Mrs. Lowry’s. When we asked her why she thought that she was chosen as Student of the Month she said that it is because she always pays attention and when she doesn’t understand something she communicates with her.

The next time you see Jones you should follow her school pride.

Davis, along with his family and friends is honored to have this type of exposure and feels that he deserved it because of his ”hard work and focus.”

Mr. Whitman can also agree to that. He added that, “Michael is an outstanding student in the classroom.  He is always prepared and is respectful to all he encounters.  He has shown leadership and dependability throughout the time that I have known him.  It is because of these characteristics that I have nominated Michael.  He truly demonstrates the behaviors that we at Lee County High School 9th Grade Campus wish to express to others in our school and community.”

Even though Davis hunts, runs, and enjoys other hobbies, he still encourages his peers to put their academics first.

This behavior is what a true student of the month displays!
