TOUGH Students of the Month - December 2022

December 2022

Jackson Jean Jr. is the Student of the Month for the Class of 2026! Last month, Jackson was nominated by Mr. Williams for treating others with respect, obtaining goals, and going above and beyond. Mr. Williams says that Jackson “consistently turns his work in on time, treats everyone the way he would want to be treated, and goes above and beyond on his classwork.” So far, Jackson’s favorite class has been Intro to Engineering and Design because it will help with his future career goals. To Jackson, being TOUGH means “helping others when they cannot help themselves.” FUN FACT: Soccer is life!

Lindsay Wood is the Student of the Month for the Class of 2025! Lindsay was nominated for obtaining goals by Mrs. Price, who reported that “Lindsay is always a strong leader in her group. She takes charge and keeps everyone on track. She likes to make sure everyone is successful. The best part....she is always so nice about it!” Lindsay’s favorite teacher at CRHS is Mrs. Dennis because “she is always so kind and helpful to her students or any student in the school. She is always there for anyone that needs someone to talk to and is overall just an amazing teacher.” For Lindsay, understanding what it means to be TOUGH is simple - just be “a respectful, kind person because everyone deserves that.” FUN FACT: Lindsay wants a career where she can work with animals!

Ty Singletary is the Student of the Month for the Class of 2024 for working to obtain her goals, Ty was nominated by Mr. Shelly. He said, “Ty has set high goals this quarter and has been meeting them. Ty has also recently been a team leader.” Mrs. Dennis stands out as Ty’s favorite CRHS teacher because “she is always there and she wants to see the best in everyone.” For Ty, being Colonel TOUGH means “being kind-hearted, looking out for others, and also setting goals for yourself and being able to obtain the goals.” Ty has big plans for her life. After high school, she wants to attend a D1 college for basketball, major in education to become a teacher, join the WNBA, go to barbering school, and keep up with her photography hobbies. She also states that she wants to “give back to the community and help out others in need.” FUN FACT: Ty loves working with kids!

Cheyenne Cayer is the Student of the Month for the Class of 2023! Cheyenne was nominated by Mrs. Carty, who says that “Cheyenne comes into class every day ready to work hard to obtain her goals. She treats her classmates with respect when working together and always treats others the way she would want to be treated.” According to Cheyenne, her favorite class is any that she’s able to have fun and laugh. She says: “Learning is always better when I am able to laugh with my classmates.” After high school, Cheyenne wants to be happy…what a great goal! To Cheyenne, “Colonel TOUGH is acting mature and knowing how others wish to be treated. Treating others with kindness will get you very far in life.” FUN FACT: Cheyenne wants to become rich in life, either through her own fortune or by marrying a rich man!
