Students of the Month

Congratulations to the Students of the Month! The students were selected by a committee based on recommendations by the administration, faculty and staff.

November, 2023

Our freshman selection is Keegan Schultz -- Keegan is making a solid impact, quote, “Frequently participating in class, in a remarkable and impressive way for a freshman,” unquote. And this, “very kind in displaying a consistent work ethic while helping his peers when asked, and is willing to help the Shadow students whenever they visit.” He always displays a positive attitude, and had a memorable welcome to Badin when five upperclass girls wore “Keegan” t-shirts to bring him on board the Ramily. We’re glad he’s here … our freshman Student of the Month, Keegan Schultz

Our sophomore selection is Nick Mangino. -- Nick is setting a strong example in the sophomore class. He “goes above and beyond the expectations. He is always volunteering to help and jumps in with a smile.” And there’s this, “His positive attitude and great work ethic make him a great example of an excellent Badin student.” And finally this, “I am so grateful to have Nick in my class this year.” Something to think about – are teachers grateful to have you in their class? Nicely done by Nick Mangino, our sophomore Student of the Month.

Our junior selection is Andrew Keck –- This is a twin spin for Andrew, who previously won in October of his freshman year, so he’s certainly a quality guy in the Class of 2025. “He’s an amazing young man,” said one faculty member. “Very involved, very active.” Andrew is part of ReMix, did a tremendous job on Junior Retreat, and has been a part of Badin’s theatre program during his career. He’s smart, well-liked, and has the personality of a leader. That’s our junior Student of the Month, Andrew Keck

Our senior selection is Payson Wilks -- Payson transferred to Badin as a junior and has been knocking it out of the park. “Mature, hard-working and a good role model for the younger students.” … “Polite, humble and always willing to help others.” … “Friendly, intelligent and kind. Seeing Payson is always a bright spot in my day.” He’s an outstanding student and was honored by the College Board for his college test performance. He’s taking full advantage of the Badin opportunities and will be ready for whatever comes next. Our senior Student of the Month, Payson Wilks
