January TMHS student recognition

Six students were recognized at Thunder Mountain High School’s January student recognition, two of which recently graduated: Gage Edwards and T Iputi.

Junior Janae Reese was nominated by English teacher Barbra Jo Maier.

“Outstanding debater!” Maier said of Reese. “Outstanding speaker. Positive attitude. Trustworthy. Willing to do the work. Assignments/tasks are completed beyond the highest criteria and submitted before the deadline.”

Senior Andrew DeGroat was nominated by attendance coordinator Darcie Seibel. “Andrew is always very polite, friendly and overall a great person,” Seibel said. “He also helps Earl a lot for community service, but goes above and beyond. He’s always prompt and ready to help in any way.”

Sophomore Alexandria Hayward was nominated by English teacher Chris Knight.

“Alex is an extraordinarily nice person that works hard in English,” Knight said. “She is very adaptable to different perspectives and her writing flows comfortably with skill and precision showing additional effort and oversight.”

Junior Evan Mauk was nominated by counselor Phil Merrell.

“Evan has made some significant changes academically this year as a student, and they deserve recognition!” Merrell said. “He is polite, studious and responds well to guidance. When I suggested to Evan some options for making up credit, he took the initiative and met with his teacher that very day. I have found few students who follow through on things as readily as Evan. Keep up the great work, we are very proud of you!”

Senior Alice Johnson was nominated by Russian and business teacher Janna Lelchuk.

“Excellent work, dedication and passion towards our school yearbook!” Lelchuk said. “Amazing photography skills. Go Alice!”

Freshmen Duane Harwell was nominated by English teacher Patrick Roach.

“Duane always comes to class ready to work,” Roach said. “He takes school seriously and produces some of the highest quality work of all the classes I teach. He also encourages his peers to stay on task and is a class leader.”
