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.

March, 2024

Our freshman selection is Phebe Kiefer -- Phebe is exactly the kind of student who makes a difference at Badin High School – a hard worker, dedicated to her studies, advocates for herself, and is friendly and supportive of her classmates. A member of the varsity softball team, she recently stayed behind to pitch for the Junior Varsity so that they would be able to play a couple of games. Teamwork … that’s our Freshman Student of the Month, Phebe Kiefer

Our sophomore selection is Vivian Zettler. -- Outstanding student and a prolific class contributor, Vivian is all-in when it comes to her classes at BHS. She works hard and serves as a strong role model for her peers. She’s active in Service, having gone on Summer Missions Trips to South Dakota last year and is scheduled to be on one this summer as well. Serving God, serving Others, our Sophomore Student of the Month, Vivian Zettler

Our junior selection is Liz Debbane –- Friendly to all and a student who elicits a positive response whenever her name comes up. Liz is very involved in theatre. She worked on the set for the fall production and effectively showed others how to get things done. “Liz always had a smile on her face no matter what changes were made on the fly. She has that ‘can do’ attitude. A talented artist and a hard worker, she’s a great example of a Badin student.” You can see Liz in “The Pajama Game” next weekend on the Little Theatre stage. Our Junior Student of the Month, Liz Debbane

Our senior selection is Noah Salek -- A quality guy who is very well thought of. Quote, “Kind, friendly hard-working.” And this, “An exceptional young man. One of the most polite and positive kids I know.” And this, “Stays after school for study help, volunteers to help clean up at the same time. He is truly a perfect example of a hard-working and faith-filled Ram.” That’s what it’s all about, that’s our Senior Student of the Month, Noah Salek
