MHS Student of the Month – April 2019
The assembly for the April Student of the Month recipients featured an all-boys’ lineup for the first time.
Freshman Xavier Colfer, sophomore Zack Bean, junior Ethan Burton, and senior Gabriel Denbow earned the honor, which traditionally has been dominated by female students.
As a student dedicated to understanding math concepts, Xavier displays a genuine passion for learning. His curiosity prompts him to ask questions that go beyond the material and concepts being taught in the classroom. In addition, Xavier is a kind student who is always ready to help a classmate.
Sophomore winner Zack is similar to Xavier in being a good-hearted person who cares about his fellow students and doesn’t hesitate to support them whenever he can. He brings a positive attitude to academic responsibilities and tries to consider the real-life applications of everything he learns.
Ethan, the junior recipient, matured significantly in the last year in terms of his approach to learning, according to his teachers. He became a student with a goal and vision and because of that, he developed greater focus and self-confidence. For example, he recently took steps to arrange internships to help him reach his goal of being an emergency medical technician.
Senior winner Gabriel has always been focused and goal oriented. A quiet, thoughtful student, Gabriel also possesses a strong work ethic, and his writing skills reflect his maturity in terms of the depth, clarity, and overall refined quality of his prose. He excelled as a journalism student, making sure to be well prepared for every person he interviewed and taking meticulous care in crafting every story he wrote. A humble, behind the scenes worker, he is a responsible person who takes his commitments seriously.
Once again, several Messalonskee students received Student of the Month recognition for their efforts at Mid-Maine Technical Center. Those students are Taylor Edman in electrical technology, Jimmy Lemelin in criminal justice, Molly Milligan in mass media communication, and C.J. Sudsbury in CTE Academy.
