For first year Guthrie Junior High School teacher Macey Alexander, eihth grade student Lilianne Neptune makes her teaching job exciting.
“She makes me more excited to do my job, and I can only hope that we teachers have a small part in her eagerness to learn,” Alexander said.
Lilianne was selected as the Student of the Month for Guthrie Public Schools. Alexander selected Lilianne for the character trait of consistent.
“Her personal life could be ever changing, and I would not know because she brings the same, positive self to class each day.”
Alexander added, “She is eager to learn inquisitive when she needs to be, and kind to her classmates. She also knows how to take a joke since her class is constantly picking at her about being a Chiefs fan.”
Lilianne was presented by Blake Wimsey with Foundation Insurance at Monday night’s Board of Education meeting.
GPS and Wimsey (pictured left) have teamed up for the fourth straight year to honor students for the character traits. Teachers and faculty select students who have displayed behavior deserving of recognition.
For her efforts, Lilianne was presented with a $65 gift card to Stacy’s Place.
