2018 - 2019 Students of the Month

January, 2019 Students of the Month

January, 2019

Our freshman selection is Haylie Jacobs. Haylie Jacobs has jumped in with both feet and it’s great to have her flying the flag of Badin High School. She is a welcoming influence at Badin and always ready with a smile. As one faculty member noted, “Haylie genuinely represents Badin in a positive way by supporting and caring for her classmates.” If you want to meet someone who bleeds green, she’s the one. Great to have her at Badin. Haylie Jacobs

Our sophomore selection is Maddie Thompson. She doesn’t seek attention, but she definitely earns attention. Maddie is an excellent student, an excellent artist and an excellent athlete. “Maddie tries to fly under the radar,” said one faculty member, “but she is a serious student and an amazing artist who deserves to be recognized for her hard work and the true, unique depth she brings to Badin HS.” … “Simply an outstanding writer,” said another. “She works hard, and it shows.” Yet another winner in the Badin orbit ... Maddie Thompson.

Our junior selection is Emari Smiley. Emari is one of those people who could be nominated every month based on being a difference-maker at Badin HS. He has done a great job helping at basketball games this year as a conscientious scoreboard operator. He’s an upbeat individual with great character. Said one faculty member, “Emari truly lives up to his last name. I can always count on him to help. Recently, he stepped up to take the blame for sliding into someone’s mail box and offered to pay for a replacement. … Based on his honesty, the resident handled the issue himself. Big hearts and smiles for this Ram role model.” That’s our guy, Emari Smiley.

Our senior selection is Brady Rolfes. Hard-working, kind and fun peer-leader are just some of the words used to describe Brady, who was nominated multiple times this month. “Checks ALL the boxes,” said one faculty member. “He is always willing to answer questions even when others in the class are not. Led our first sophomore retreat and stayed to serve even after getting word that his grandmother had died.” Outstanding and great all-around young man are a few more of the compliments directed Brady’s way. Well-earned on his part ... Brady Rolfes
