From The Trussville Tribune staff reports
TRUSSVILLE – The Trussville Rotary Daybreak Club named its students of the month for October from Hewitt-Trussville High School and Clay-Chalkville High School.
The Don Haisten Student of the Month from HTHS is senior Ashlynn Cartee. Ashlynn is involved in Key Club where she serves as president, Girls Service Association, Yearbook, Peer Partners, National Honor Society, tennis team, and is an Orientation Assistant. She has served on the ninth grade, tenth grade, and eleventh-grade boards and has received an AP scholarship award as well as a UA presidential scholarship.
Ashlynn’s selection for Teacher of the Month is Jennifer Coleman, her AP language and composition teacher. Says Ashlynn, “Mrs. Coleman invested in me as a student and a writer, boosting not only my skills but my overall confidence as a student. Each day in class, she made valuable and intentional use of our time, never letting a moment go to waste. I left her class feeling assured in my abilities as a student, and I continued applying her lessons in other aspects of my life and studies.”
The Student of the Month from CCHS is senior Dayon Bryant. Dayon plays basketball and has formerly been a part of the football and baseball teams and also the band. In HOSA, he worked on a judicial campaign and voter registration and is a motivational speaker at Clay Elementary. He is a member of the Honor Society and the Spanish Honor Society. In his spare time, he likes to train for basketball and help other kids who want to play basketball. He also interns at ATI Physical Therapy.
His Teacher of the Month is Mrs. Cheryl Battle, his Spanish teacher. “She has helped me in many ways,” said Dayon, “and not just in Spanish class. She has taught me life lessons that I can take with me throughout my life.”
This program is sponsored by Jim ‘n Nick’s Bar-B-Q. Each honoree received a gift card from Jim ‘n Nick’s Bar-B-Q.
