Junior Kaylen Hurst was named the March student of the month. The virtue was courage, the ability to do something that frightens one.
At the Ash Wednesday service, Assistant Principal David Tenney introduced her, mentioning how one of those nominating her described Hurst as “the strongest person I know”.
When asked, Hurst said she was not expecting to win. The multi-faceted student was rewarded with a certificate, a card, and a gift certificate to Chick-fil-la.
Hurst also mentioned how it felt good to win and she appreciated that other people can see her strength, especially when she is going through tough times. “There were many other people who could have gotten this student of the month, many who persevere and show strength in times of trouble but it felt good to be recognized.”
Hurst sings in the choir in addition to being a member of the swimming and softball teams.
