Sunrise Rotarians honor student role models

By
From page A7 | April 11, 2014 |

The Sunrise Rotary Club of Davis recently honored seven Davis, Da Vinci and King high school students as Students of the Month for April. They are:

* Chris Allen, nominated by King High School teacher Theo Buckendorf, who wrote, “Chris Allen is the type of student that every teacher loves to have in class. He is smart, humble, respectful, works hard and serves as a role model for other students. In the King High bike shop, Chris brings a passion and thirst for learning that ranks among the best in the program’s history. Chris’ math teacher echoes a sentiment shared by the entire staff when she describes Chris’ personality as ‘hard to get to know but it’s totally worth it.’ His calm and steady demeanor displays a maturity far beyond his 17 years.”

* Samanego Granillo, nominated by physical education teacher Julie Crawford, who wrote, “Sammy is such a delight to have in class. He always works hard and is on task. He is helpful, kind and courteous toward other students, and to me, his teacher. I appreciate his enthusiasm for physical education and his happy, smiling face in class, every day. Keep up the great work!”

Alice Honig, nominated by world language teacher Lili Floyd, who wrote, “Alice Honig is in my French 4 class. I chose her for this award because she is determined and hard-working. At the beginning of the school year, she was in a panic and almost ready to leave the class, but decided to stay instead. It has been a struggle, but she worked so hard as to move up two grades. She is now doing very well, and still is working as hard as ever. Alice is an inspiration to all because of her unrelenting desire to learn and improve. It is great to have her in class.”

Emily Knighton, nominated by Da Vinci High School internship coordinator Susan Kirby, who wrote, “Emily Knighton came to me last fall with a variety of places she was interested in doing an internship. After several of these options weren’t a possibility she began interning at Gold Standard Diagnostics, a biomedical engineering firm located in Davis. They manufacture an instrument called a Thunderbolt. This instrument can determine whether or not a patient has contracted a specific disease by analyzing a biological sample.

“Emily spent most of her time in manufacturing and quality control, the side of the business that sees this instrument transform from a few un-programmed circuit boards and thousands of other unassigned parts into a fully functioning, sample-reading machine.

“Emily took her Da Vinci collaboration skills with her to this internship as her supervisor helped her see the importance of company dynamics. They visited the lab section often and participated in officewide events because she saw the importance of working as a team. She’s used to professionalism at Da Vinci but got to see it in the work setting in many ways.”

* Guadalupe Perez, nominated by floral design/agriculture teacher Ellie Michel, who wrote, “Lupe Perez is awesome! She is dedicated to her school work, rugby, the FFA and her job. Lupe always gives 110 percent and does whatever it takes to be successful. She gives herself weekly grade checks and is always looking for ways to improve.

“She is very active in the FFA by participating on the floraculture judging team, she plays rugby and works at night. Lupe has a great attitude and sense of humor. She keeps the people around her positive, laughing and she encourages others to do their best. Lupe is a great student, FFA member and person.”

* Laquise Stanley, nominated by special education/study skills teacher Vickie Rich, who wrote, “Despite recent health setbacks, Laquise has overcome and is showing a renewed commitment to her classes and classwork. I predict continued improvement!”

* Alejandro Yankelevich, nominated by world language teacher Frank C. Thomsen, who wrote, “Alejandro is an excellent student, skilled not only in German but in many areas. His academic prowess is combined with an excellent attitude, polite and cheerful demeanor, solid character and mature disposition.”
