Three Williston school students were honored by Mayor Gerald Hethcoat last week as Students of the Month for December.
Everett Warren, Joyce Bullock Elementary first-grader, son of Curt and Karen Warren, was nominated by Mrs. Griffith, his teacher, who made the following comments:
"Everett is every teacher's dream. He is such a positive role model for the other children. Everett is very helpful to not only his teachers but his classmates. He is excelling in all academic areas. Everett is always willing to help struggling students using his knowledge. He is very sensitive and always looks for ways to help children who need that extra attention. Everett would give anything he had just to help another student. I am very proud to be Everett's teacher."
Kathryn Butts, Williston Elementary School fifth-grader, daughter of Daniel and Tina Butts, was nominated by Mr. VanZwienen, her teacher, who made the following comments:
"Kathryn is a hardworking student who does well academically in our class. She consistently does her homework, studies for tests, and excels with her projects. She has demonstrated a lot of responsibility not only by serving faithfully in Safety Patrol but also by helping out in the classroom. She works well with other students and has proven herself trustworthy. I am excited to recommend her for this honor."
Jahleel Penny, Williston Middle School seventh-grader, son of Judy Graham, was nominated by Ernst Kordgien, his principal, who made the following comments:
"Jahleel is always polite, respectful and willing to help; Jahleel Penny is a shining example of good citizenship. He is well-liked by his peers and is comfortable working with them all. His smile and humor bring a positive atmosphere to all his activities. His class contributions and comments are relevant and clearly thought out. We would like to thank Jahleel for his positive contributions to our school."
There was no nomination this month from Williston High School.
