    CONGRATULATIONS to the following students for being selected as a SMHS Student of the Month:

    Akiera Baker is an amazing young lady who is always polite and cordial. She always says "Good Morning" when she walks in the door and "Bye" as she leaves at the end of class. Not only is she always prepared for class, she participates in productive conversations, and is just an overall great person. Akiera works hard in and out of the classroom, managing her time well while working, playing ball, and completing classwork. Ms. Collier would like to thank her for all of her hard work by recognizing her as a Student of the Month. Congrats, Akiera!!!

    Cadet Anissa Raney is Msgt McCoy's Student of the Month. This is Cadet Raney’s first year at SM. We first met her during the summer leadership camp at Keesler which she attended with her previous high school. Knowing she would be attending St Martin this year, she made a point to get to know the SM cadets and take part in the unit events. She has quickly become a valuable member of the unit assisting with teaching drill, issuing uniforms and volunteering as a timer for the St Martin Swim team. We are very blessed to have Cadet Raney as part of our AF JROTC family. Way to go, Anissa.

    Dr. Humphreys has nominated Scott Alley as a Student of the Month. Scott is a very helpful young man. He is kind and willing to assist anyone at any time. This is also true as he serves the office staff as an aide during 3rd block. He even checks in regarding tasks on Fridays, a day that he does not have to report to 3rd. He has gone to teachers when Dr. Humphreys cannot leave class to assist with getting their computers back online and has built numerous Chrome Carts. Scott always has a “can do” spirit and a smile on his face. For these and many other reasons, Scott Alley is an SMHS Student of the Month.

    Mrs. Markos has nominated in tandum nominating Easton and Sophie Whitehead. Both take their academics very seriously while participating in many school activities as well. The second week of school Easton came to Mrs. Markos asking if she would tutor him for the September ACT as he wants a higher score for a specific scholarship. Of course, the answer was yes. He then asked if his sister could come too. Again, the answer was yes! A schedule was set for them to come at least 3 times a week before school for ACT tutoring, and this will continue till the September ACT test. They were on campus by 7:15 AM, and they stay working on practice tests till 8:25 AM. They are both determined to boost their scores, and Mrs. Markos is so proud of them to sacrifice the extra time to work instead of sleeping or spending time with friends! They are perfect examples for Student of the Month and perfect examples of student athletes!

    Congratulations to each of our SMHS Students of the Month. You need to pick up a form from Ms. Hodges for lunch off campus on Sept 26. We think each of you rock!
