Jeannette McKee K-8 has named its middle school students of the month for October.

Marah Thomas, a fifth-grader, Cheyanne Gilfillan, a sixth-grader, Riley Noel, a seventh-grader, Keyanna Smith, an eighth-grader, are the most recent awardees.

Marah is active in fifth-grade band and the middle school reading competition. Her favorite class this year is Spanish and French with Janeen Bost as her teacher.

“I think I was chosen as student of the month because I study for tests and quizzes and I am prepared,” said Marah.

In the future, Marah wants to raise money for homeless shelters and orphanages.

Something she is proud of is being named to the high honors list.

Marah is the daughter of Ashley and Adam Beaufort.

Cheyanne is involved in the middle school band.

Her favorite class is social studies because “I like to learn about historic events. Also, it is my favorite class because I have the best teacher, Mrs. (Jaime) Rininger.”

Cheyanne believes she was chosen as a student of the month because she follows directions, does all of her homework and “I try not to be mean to anyone.”

In the future, Cheyanne would like to become either a pediatrician or an archeologist.

Something she is proud of is helping people who have autism.

Cheyanne is the daughter of Cheryl Gilfillan.

Riley, the son of Lanny and Joni Noel, is active in his favorite sport, baseball.

His favorite class is home economics because “I love to cook, sew and eat, of course.”

He believes he was chosen as a student of the month because he works hard in all of his classes and “I am kind to others.”

His future plan is to join the U.S. Marine Corps and achieve the rank of sergeant.

Something he is proud of is that he has always been “helping and caring for my friends every time they need help with something.”

Keyanna, the daughter of Keshia Jamison, is active in basketball and the reading competition.

Her favorite class is language arts.

“I was chosen (as student of the month) because I had a dramatic change for the best,” she said.

Something she is most proud of is that “I changed my behavior.”

Her future plans are to sing and go to college.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper.
