DHS students of the month honored
Douglas High School students of the month for December 2000 are a well-rounded bunch.
According to DHS Vice Principal Tom Morgan, teachers nominating their students had high praise for the group, which includes sophomore Brian Dixon, juniors Renee Ruppel and Hailie Gellis and senior Andy Johnson.
Teacher of the month is Rebecca Browning.
Brian was called “quiet, but a great student.” Brian has set high academic standards for himself and is willing to help others, another comment says.
Renee is very much involved in programs at DHS and is described as being extremely involved, organized, a strong student and independently driven.
“Her efforts in leadership class are unsurpassed,” one teacher wrote. Another teacher said she has tremendous communication skills.
Hailie is the type of student a teacher looks forward to seeing, one of her teachers wrote.
“She always has a smile, is positive and always helpful to peers and me,” another said.
Andy was called mature, well-rounded and a great student and person.
“He is involved with the Alpine Club and generally is the type of kid you’d let watch your house when you are gone,” another wrote.
Browning was nominated by one of her peers because of her meticulous preparation and dedication to the students.
Another teacher said she always has a smile, and another said, “It is nice to see a teacher that enjoys her curriculum so much.”
