Canton Rotary Club Honors March 2018 Students of the Month
Canton Junior High School Principal Clay Tracy thanked Canton Rotarians today for the opportunity to showcase “the greatness of our Canton Junior High,” as he introduced eighth grader Kori Nicklas and seventh grader Ben Matthews. Canton High School Counselor expressed hers and students’ enthusiasm over this being the week before spring break, as she introduced her star pupils: Morgan Parker and Jeremy Dickerson.
Kori spoke first, and mentioned her parents and shared about her love for sports, painting, and public speaking. Ben talked about his family, his love for playing baseball, and how he hopes to heal quickly from a knee injury, so he can get back to sports before the end of the year. He plans to one day attend Texas A&M and become an engineer.
Morgan was the first high school student to speak, and shared that she works in administration, in the principal’s office. She is on the Varsity Volleyball team, a National Honor Society (NHS) member, enjoys working out, and spending time with her family. She aspires to become a Neonatal Nurse one day, upon graduation from Texas State University.
Jeremy was very outgoing, and has competed in One Act Play. He is involved with multiple high school clubs, including Future Farmers of America (FFA) and participates with the UIL Current Issues and Events Team. He was selected as one of the Leaders of Tomorrow by Phi Theta Kappa at Trinity Valley Community College (TVCC), and plans to attend Texas A&M and study personal financial advising.
