English Student of the Month: October


Jade King is the English Department’s October Student of the Month

Senior Jade King has been named English Student of the Month for October!

Jade believes her positive mindset helps her continue to be the best version of herself.

“The sun is gonna come up and I am gonna sing,” Jade said. “It’s what I tell myself every morning as a reason to keep going no matter what I come across.”

English teacher Russell Anderson feels Jade’s outlook and work ethic in class distinguishes her from fellow students.

“Each day, Jade comes in ready to not only discuss the specifics of the text we are studying (Elizabeth Acevedo’s The Poet X), breaking down the poetic craft and larger thematic ideas of gender dynamics and dual identities, but also how Xiomara’s story impacts her life and the world around her,” Anderson said. “This perspective, the ability to situate herself among those around her with care and attention, is what I hope all my students eventually achieve.”
