2017 - 2018 Students of the Month

February, 2018 Students of the Month

February, 2018

Our freshman selection is Dane Lauer. Dane has made a big impact as a freshman and has been nominated several times. He’s personable and helpful, as when he recently dusted off an art teacher’s shelves without being asked. “Dane is more than eager to get involved,” said one teacher, who also wonders why Dane Lauer isn’t in the Ambassador Program. I don’t know – I guess I’ll ask Dane that question. When somebody thinks you should be an Ambassador, that’s quite a compliment. That’s freshman Dane Lauer

Our sophomore selection is Lizzie Middendorf. Lizzie is known as one of the kindest people in the school, which is something pretty special to be known for. She’s a quiet young woman who lets her success do the talking for her … she was a lonely diver for the Rams, but didn’t keep that from allowing her to qualify for districts. She’s a hard worker, an excellent student, and an outstanding representative of Badin High School! That’s our sophomore Student of the Month ... Lizzie Middendorf.

Our junior selection is Sami Raley. Look up the word “class” in the dictionary and Sami Raley is looking back at you. She’s a role model for her peers and a great mentor for younger students. “Sami is, in a word, awesome!” said one faculty member. “Not only does she dominate in volleyball, but she works hard in class and makes a difference in the world around her.” When the Class of 2019 takes on its role as seniors, Sami Raley will be front and center as a leader who shows the way. Sami Raley

Our senior selection is Kenny Pendergest. Kenny P is another one of those names who pops up frequently on nomination forms because, as one faculty member wrote, “He is a strong and consistent leader.” It’s hard to be the principal’s son but Kenny wears it well. He’s friendly, mature, and well-liked … and isn’t afraid to challenge himself by taking on a blockbuster of a schedule. That challenge will serve him well as time goes on … and in the meantime, Kenny is doing well by Badin High School with positive energy and a winning personality Kenny Pendergest
