February Students of the Month:
Combs High School--Arleth Mejia-Garcia
“I have the privilege of having Arleth Mejia in my Algebra class this year. She is very deserving of the recognition for Coyote of the Month. In the classroom, Arleth is a very hard worker and her grades are representative of her hard work. If she is absent, she gets her missing work completed without needing any prompting or reminding (as many freshmen do!). No matter what the assignment or task is, Arleth will complete it to the best of her ability. She will help other people, ask great questions, and she does all of this with a smile on her face!
Outside the classroom, Arleth is a cross-country runner, and her progress throughout her freshmen season shows that her great work ethic extends to everything she does, not just her school work. As a fellow runner, it's great to hear about her progress and future goals. I cannot think of a better nominee for Coyote of the Month. Keep up the great work, Arleth!” Nominated by Jess Furman.
Kiwanis International—Brian Garcia—“Brian used to be so shy. He has worked hard to overcome that and is now a drama club officer, an actor in two school plays, and was awarded a $20,000 scholarship for acting to Hastings College”. Nominated by Nick Smith.
Banner Hospital--Banner Hospital SOM Fairness Nominee:
“For fairness, I recommend Brookie Schnepf. She understands that sometimes you have to do extra work in order to appeal to the realms of fairness. She is currently retaking 2 semesters of both Algebra 1 and Algebra 2 in order to get an A. She could have complained about it, and not done anything to fix it. Brookie realized she would like to attain the scholarship at NAU that is based off of GPA, so she decided to retake both of those classes in order to get her GPA to improve. I think this shows fairness in putting in the effort to achieve the result instead of asking for a special exception or just complaining about her previous grades. “Nominated by Jennifer McKee.
