The J.O. Combs Unified School District is pleased to continue its partnership with Banner Ironwood Medical Center to administer the Student of the Month program. The program provides an opportunity each month for one student from each of the district's seven schools to be recognized for demonstrating one of the various pillars of the Character Counts program. One character trait is selected each month and students are selected by their principal or teacher.
Traits included in the Character Counts Program include responsibility, trustworthiness, citizenship, caring, respect and fairness. For the month of May, students were recognized for demonstrating the character trait of citizenship.
Selected students are celebrated for their achievement with a certificate of recognition at the Governing Board meeting each month where they are acknowledged by Superintendent Dr. Greg Wyman, the Governing Board, and a Banner Ironwood Medical Center representative.
The Students of the Month for May include:
- Combs High School - Lorelei Farnsworth
- Combs Middle School - Alexander Snaith
- Combs Traditional Academy - Abigail Butler
- Harmon Elementary - Claire Hulme
- Ellsworth Elementary - Miguel Valle
- Simonton Elementary - Joshua Blincoe
- Ranch Elementary - McKenzie Martinez
