October Girl of the Month, Kendra Maker

Every month there is a “Girl of the Month” and a ” Boy of the Month” who gets spotlighted in our local newspaper, The Corry Journal.  Mrs. Bourgoine, who is in charge of collecting girl nominees said the winner is chosen by a committee of high school teachers and is honored by the Beta Sigma Phi Sorority. Mrs. Britten is in charge of the boy of the month, but unfortunately the Journal did not respond to her in time for this month. Usually, every month the boy is chosen by a committee of  high school staff members, and is honored by the Corry Rotary Club.

When looking for female nominees, they are looking for a girl who is in the program that honors society, exemplifies the qualities of scholarship, citizenship, and leadership. When looking for the boy, they look for someone who has strong academics, community service hours, both in school and out, honors, and partakes in extra curricular activities.

This month the “Girl of the Month” was Kendra Maker, a senior here at Corry High. When I asked Kendra what her initial reaction was when she found out she had won, she said, “I was excited when I was told the news.”

Then I asked Maker why she felt she was chosen this month. She said, “I think I got the position because my determination was noticed by one who overlooks such a variety of individuals.”

This was the nominee for this school year, but more will come throughout the year.
