BROWNSTOWN

Three boys recently were recognized by Brownstown Central Community School Corp. as Students of the Month.

Freshman Chandler Day, sixth-grader Eli Reynolds and fifth-grader Isiaah Engle each earned a certificate for their efforts inside and outside the classroom.

Day was chosen by two of his teachers, Sharon DeHart and Carolyn Ira.

“Chandler is a very hardworking and conscientious student,” Principal Joe Sheffer said in reading their comments. “He works diligently to not only complete his work but to understand the assignment in order to apply it in real-world situations. He is kind, well-mannered and definitely a pleasure to have in class.”

Eli’s sixth-grade teachers nominated him for the award, saying he embodies a quote by American author John C. Maxwell, “A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way and shows the way.”

“He is hardworking and dependable, and he exemplifies the BCMS qualities of respect, responsibility and resourcefulness,” Principal Doug McClure said while reading the teachers’ nomination letter. “By doing so, Eli leads the other students by example.”

Eli also is a member of the Spell Bowl and Academic Super Bowl teams, participates in an after-school coding group and is a student library assistant.

“Through all of his activities, he takes initiative to help other students and staff,” the teachers wrote. “He has a great attitude and an outgoing personality and is definitely deserving of the honor of BCMS Student of the Month.”

Isiaah was named Little Brave of the Month for being most athletic. He was nominated by physical education teacher Jennifer Schneider.

“He has a love for sports,” Principal Chrystal Street said in reading Schneider’s comments. “He is respectful to authority and others at school. He is always willing to put forth effort. He has good social skills. He is eager to improve when it comes to his personal fitness goals. He is a rule follower, he is a team player, he is encouraging to those around him and win or lose, he is always a good sport.”
