Cowden-Herrick teachers have named Lizzie Parks and Brent Thompson November Students of the Month.
The Students of the Month are nominated by teachers based on Academic Effort, Attitude, Participation/Contribution, Responsibility and Service. Junior high and/or high school students are selected each month. They each receive $25.00 donated by Community Banks of Shelby County.
Lizzie Parks is a seventh grade student, daughter of Ryan and Shantel Parks. She has a twin sister named Lexie, and an adorable baby brother named Lukas.
She is in the Pep Club and Math Club, and is a member of the Celebration Community Church in Pana. When she graduates high school, she wants to become a baker, and own her own bakery.
Brent Thompson is a sophomore student, son of Stuart and Lola Thompson and has one brother, Royce. He is involved in FFA, a member of Student Council, the Performance Club, and is also involved in 4-H. His future plans are to enroll in trade school and become a lineman.
Cowden-Herrick motto for this year is upheld by these students: “Remember, a strong, positive self-image is the best possible preparation for success.” Congratulations Lizzie and Brent!
