2019 - 2020 Students of the Month

November, 2019 Students of the Month

November, 2019

Our freshman selection is JJ Even. JJ is an outstanding student and a quality guy. He’s a talented athlete and is already seriously invested in the Badin Family. Said one teacher, “JJ utilizes all strategies and resources that are taught. He is engaged and participatory in class. Although he always shows up well prepared, he still asks good questions and strives for perfection. He is personable and a joy to teach.” Great to have Joshua Jordan Even here in the Class of 2023. JJ Even

Our sophomore selection is Ryleigh Clemmons. Ryleigh is top shelf in the sophomore class. She is an integral part of the Sleep In Heavenly Peace initiative, and spells Service with a capital S. She was a big help during the Canned Food Drive, is an excellent tennis player and also a First Honors student who is serious about her academics. To know her is to like her … and if you don’t know her, she’ll be around for 2.5 more years. Ryleigh Clemmons.

Our junior selection is Abby Sandifer. Abby had multiple nominations this month, with people calling her, quote, “a game-changer” … “always smiling, laughing, and welcoming” … “a role model for her peers” … “always willing to help others.” She works hard in school and is a gymnast who also teachers gymnastics after school. In addition, she lends a winning presence during her time as the office aide during 8th bell. “She is always so pleasant and helpful the office wouldn’t be the same without her.” Abby Sandifer.

Our senior selection is Will Giffen. Will has had an outstanding career at Badin, and as one faculty member put it, “He checks all the boxes.” Will is not afraid to be a leader, is a National Merit Commended Student and excels in the classroom, is a first team all-league soccer player, and well liked among his peers. Said one faculty member, “Will’s efforts and results in the classroom are top notch. He is always quietly energetic and on-task and willing to assist when needed. He is always upbeat and positive and reflects positively on himself and on Badin.” That’s what it’s all about. That’s Will Giffen
