Molly selected as her Teacher of the Month Valerie Lemmons, her theatre teacher. Molly said of her teacher: “Ms. Lemmons is always positive and uplifting and is a great teacher.”

Jayla Cooper, a junior, is the CCHS Student of the Month. Jayla is involved in volleyball, choir, track, and CIA (her sorority). She is a member of the honor society and received a sophomore achievement award. In her spare time, she enjoys practicing sports.

Jayla selected her English Teacher, Jocelyn Gant, as her Teacher of the Month. “Ms. Gant has pushed me to pursue my full potential and has taken on a maternal role for me,” said Jayla.
