The winners of the October Character Education Students of the Month award at Collinsville High School were recently announced. The character trait for the month was “be honest; be true to yourself and others.”

The winners were Sabas Avalos-Rangel, Jordan Bohnenstiehl, Samantha Buettner, Brittney Frazer, Hayden Juenger, Derron Miller, George Ramirez, Jake Reimler, Jacob Rosser, Alexis Scruggs and Destinae Smith.

Sabas Avalos-Rangel

Not long ago, Sabas was working with others on an assignment for which the students were to receive a grade as a group. Sabas came to me and asked that I grade his paper separately from the rest of his group because he was working at a different pace than his group and did not want to take credit for their work. – Mrs. Anne Luner

Jordan Bohnenstiehl

I have known Jordan through Health Occupations Students of America for the last two years. In every class and in every extracurricular activity, I can depend on Jordan to do her own work, answer honestly when questioned, and be where she is expected to be when she is expected to be there.

Jordan is personable, polite, respectful and compassionate. She is intelligent and studious. At her core, is the desire to do the right thing, the right way and be accountable if something unexpected happens. I am personally excited about her future in nursing because there is no attribute more highly regarded in any health care field, especially nursing, than that of honesty. Jordan will succeed, I believe, because she possesses the integrity to be honest in all situations. – Mrs. Sherry Modeer

Samantha Buettner

Sammi can always be counted on for her honesty and trustworthiness. Over the past month, Sammi has been trusted with counting the money for the Pretty Baby Contest and collecting money for the Student vs. Staff Charity Volleyball Game. She can always be relied upon to make the right choice and step up to lend a helping hand.

If I need a student to run an errand or help with a project, Sammi is always the student who comes to mind because of her honesty and positive attitude. She will always help anyone in need, even without being asked. Sammi is the kind of student that makes teaching a true joy. – Mrs. Barbara Lindauer

Brittney Frazer

I have known Brittney through Health Occupations Students of America for the last two years. In every class and in every extracurricular activity, I can depend on Brittney to do her own work, answer honestly when questioned, and be where she is expected to be when she is expected to be there.

Brittney is personable, polite, respectful and compassionate. She is intelligent and studious. At her core, is the desire to do the right thing, the right way and be accountable if something unexpected happens. I am personally excited about her future in nursing because there is no attribute more highly regarded in any health care field, especially nursing, than that of honesty. Brittney will succeed, I believe, because she possesses the integrity to be honest in all situations. – Mrs. Sherry Modeer

Hayden Juenger

During class, he borrowed a calculator from me. He accidentally broke the screen on the calculator. He brought it up to me, explained the situation and apologized. I am proud of him for bringing it to my attention and asking me how we should handle the situation. His honesty makes me proud to know that he is growing to be an honorable young man. – Mrs. Kelley Liljegren

Derron Miller

Derron found a cell phone and returned it to the main office. The fact that several students have discovered their phones were misplaced and few have been returned to their owners makes Derron’s action a special response of honesty. It was given to the student who lost it and he was extremely grateful. – Mrs. Christina Bell

George Ramirez

Gorge was in my accounting class his junior year and is a member of my co-op class this year. Gorge is a full-time student, works at FCB Bank in Collinsville and also helps his parents run a bounce house company in his spare time. He also serves as treasurer for the Future Business Leaders of America club at CHS. He exemplifies honesty in his personal and professional life.

Gorge is trusted each day with large amounts of money at the bank and is very well respected there. He does his own class work and is an “A” student at CHS. – Mrs. Kelli Davidson

Jake Reimler

Jake searched for, found and returned a stolen phone that was hidden within our classroom.  What a great example of honesty at CHS! – Mrs. Adria Stapleton and Mrs. Sarah Thompson

Jacob Rosser

Jacob is extremely honest. I handed out tests one day and one of the students in the previous class had marked all the correct answers on the test, and not on the scantron. Instead of cheating, Jacob immediately brought me the test. – Mrs. Tiffany Droege

Alexis Scruggs

Alex has the great student quality of being honest when she does not understand a lesson or a new concept in class, and asking questions to clarify the new information. Her questions are always thoughtful and generally help other students understand what is going on.

We always appreciate Alex’s honest feedback in class. She is not afraid to answer questions and give her opinion during class discussions, particularly if no one else is volunteering. Overall, she is a great student to have in class, and we truly appreciate her enthusiasm for learning. – Ms. Emily Jenkins and Mrs. Talisha Chambliss

Destinae Smith

While performing morning duty on Oct. 1, I was approached by Destinae Smith.  Destinae found $2.00 in the cafeteria before school.  Rather than keep the money, Destinae sought out staff to turn in the money. – Mrs. Terri Cary
