From The Trussville Tribune staff reports

TRUSSVILLE – The Trussville Rotary Daybreak Club has named its students of the month for May from Hewitt-Trussville High School (HTHS) and Clay-Chalkville High School (CCHS).

The Don Haisten Student of the Month from HTHS is sophomore Caraline Cox. Caraline is a member of the tennis, basketball, and volleyball teams.

She is a part of the Pink Engineers, Science Olympiad, FBLA, Serve Team, Mu Alpha Theta, and National Honor Society, and is an Orientation Assistant. She was a March Student of the Month, made the A-Honor Roll, and received the Husky Award for her leadership in volleyball. Her selection for Teacher of the Month is Molly Jones, her math teacher.

Says Caraline, “Ms. Jones has meant so much to my success as a student. She is always helpful and going the extra mile to make sure I understand math.”

“This year, she has also been the amazing sponsor for sophomore board. She is always so organized, kind, and positive, which really helps to put a smile on my face when I pass her in the halls.”

The Student of the Month from CCHS is senior Emily Bryant. Emily is a member of the CCHS band, where she serves as the flute section leader and also as a drum major.

She is vice-president of Mu Alpha Theta, President of HOSA, and is a CCHS ambassador. She also serves as chaplain of the National Honor Society.

She also works part-time at Carroll Pharmacy and would like to attend pharmacy school. Her Teacher of the Month is ScottPhillips, her pre-calculus and pre-AP calculus teacher.

Mr. Phillips was always so encouraging and helpful to me when I struggled and he helped me figure out challenging calculus problems. In his class, there was no such thing as a dumb question,” said Emily.

This program is sponsored by Jim ‘n Nick’s Bar-B-Q andCollege Prep U. Each honoree received a gift card from Jim ‘n Nick’s Bar-B-Q and the students received a free session from College Prep U.
