Meagan Holtmeyer is a tier-one student for the New Haven High School. And she has proven this by earning Student of the Month for November. She has showed perfect attendance, and her grades are near perfect. Meagan has truly given her all this month. She deserves the honor of being Student of the Month.
In order to be Student of the Month you have to meet certain standards. Teachers look at attendance, grades, attitude, and determination in students. Meagan has checked all of these boxes, but not necessarily intentionally. When Meagan was told she was Student of the Month by Ms. Hoener, it was a total surprise to her.
Meagan was asked how it feels to be Student of the Month.
She says, “The only difference I have learned, or at least noticed, is not having to walk as far in the cold month of November down to the school, in the sometimes freezing temperatures.”
Meagan was also asked if there are any perks or bonuses for being Student of the Month.
She replied, “Getting the parking spot closer to school.” So if you are ever looking forward to being Student of the Month, you’ll get to park your car just feet away from the school. No more walking.
Being Student of the Month is not just about bragging rights, or a closer parking spot. Being Student of the Month should be considered an honor to our school, and should be appreciated. After all, there are plenty of other people to choose for it. Next time you see Meagan in the halls, give her a well-deserved congratulations.
