J.O. Combs students of the month honored in November

The J.O. Combs Unified School District continues to partner with Banner Ironwood in a Student of the Month program which recognizes one student every month from each of our schools.

There is a selection process in place where students are recognized for the various pillars of the Character Counts Program which include Responsibility, Trustworthiness, Citizenship, Caring, Respect and Fairness.

This presentation takes place each month at the regular governing board meeting. For the month of November, Ms. Sharon Lind, chief executive officer of Banner Ironwood Medical Center, presented each student with a certificate of special recognition. A photograph was taken with the representative from Banner Ironwood, the governing board and Superintendent Gayle A. Blanchard. The following students were recognized for demonstrating the character trait of Citizenship.

•Jaden Bernhardt, J.O. Combs Middle School, eighth grade
•Kobe Kennady, Combs Traditional Academy, first grade
•James Taylor, Harmon Elementary, second grade
•Savannah Moak, Ranch Elementary, fourth grade
•Cambria Morris, Simonton Elementary, sixth grade

The Queen Creek Independent is mailed each month to 35,000 homes.
