Messalonskee High School recently announced its December Students of the Month. They include Breanna Corbin, freshmen; Julia Cooke and Kaiisha Pluard, sophomores; Noah Milne, junior; and Alexis Reed, senior.

These students were chosen for their academic improvement/excellence and their contribution to the Messalonskee school community. They were nominated by the school’s faculty members and chosen by the school’s Culture Committee and Leadership Team, according to a news release from the high school.

Corbin quickly earned a reputation as a student who makes special efforts to help classmates, even helping them to carry books or materials when their arms are full.

Cooke is a highly motivated student. Her list of school activities and achievements include being a member of the Key Club, Lirima, MessoFortes, Student Council and Tri-M. She has been honored and selected for the past four years to the KV Honors Chorus and last year was selected to the All State Chorus Festival. She has been in the productions of “The Sound of Music” and “Arabian Nights.”

Pluard helps classmates struggling with an assignment, taking them through examples so they truly understand the concepts being taught. In fact, many students have learned to come to her to seek assistance.

Milne, the junior recipient, is a student who sees the value in giving careful consideration to both sides of an issue. In class he has chosen positions in opposition to his own views in order to better understand opposing arguments, as well as challenge himself in developing and supporting his own opinions.

The senior winner, Reed, works a job after school, carries a full academic load, including college courses, and yet still has made it a point to be a peer tutor. A transfer student to Messalonskee, she has done well in making the transition and enriching her new school in the process with her caring attitude.

Mid-Maine Technical Center also recognized the following Messalonskee students for Student of the Month honors: Sydney Orcutt, mass media Communications; Kevin Trask, CTE Academy; and Nicolas Veilleux, electrical technology.
