The monthly winners are recognized in school, on the school website, and in the Tri-County News. They also receive a Subway gift certificate and Chamber Bucks from the Kimball Area Chamber of Commerce. Special thanks to Luxemburg’s Subway and the Kimball Chamber of Commerce for sponsoring this program. The following students are recognized for December 2012:

Grade 7-Lidiah Zipp


Lidiah is a mature young lady who is considerate of her classmates and staff. She helps diffuse situations between classmates and brings a positive attitude to every class. Being a hard worker, being attentive, and remembering what her teachers say are other reason Lidiah is an exceptional student.

Her ability to show respect, problem solve and be positive toward students and staff are excellent qualities that make her an obvious choice for this award.

Grade 11-Derek Jensen

Derek Jensen has been nominated for the junior class’s December’s Student of the Month. Over the course of the school year, Derek has demonstrated noteworthy leadership skills. He has demonstrated ownership in his own learning. He works productively during class time to complete quality work, genuinely participates in class discussion, chooses to surround himself with other students who also have similar classroom goals, and is positive toward his peers and teachers. Teachers and students alike appreciate his sense of humor and level of maturity he brings to the classroom. Congratulations to Derek on this nomination!

Grade 12-Kaylee Petty

As teachers, we are blessed with Kaylee’s smile on a daily basis. Kaylee finds a reason to grin and laugh in almost every class period. She warms up a room with her presence. In addition, she is an excellent teacher’s assistant. She is dedicated to multiple activities at the school. Her advisors and coaches recognize her as one of the most reliable students they have worked with. For these reasons and more, Kaylee is a very deserving student of the month for the senior class.
