The Cairo-Durham Teacher Association each month in the High School nominates and votes for candidates for a Student of the Month Award. Teachers nominate and vote for a student who shows that they are dedicated to their studies, show good academic effort, demonstrate appropriate school behavior and participate in school and community activities for community service.
Congratulations to Colleen Unzelman, chosen as the Cairo-Durham High School Student of the Month for December! Colleen has chosen her AP World History teacher, Mrs. Giarrusso to represent her in this photograph.
Colleen is among our hardest-working students at Cairo-Durham and has already, as a freshman, earned the respect and admiration of her teachers. She has a full course load with Honors and AP classes and also serves on our Student Principal Panel in an effort to advocate for student/teacher/administration connections and rapport. As a middle school student, Colleen earned several awards including the John Hopkins Program award. Outside of school, she continues to express her caring personality by obtaining knowledge of first aid in order to support her babysitting work/experience. In her spare time, Colleen spends much of her time reading! She is a passionate and avid reader who enjoys literary analysis and discussion. It is a pleasure to be celebrating Colleen; we look forward to all that she will accomplish and offer our district throughout the coming years!
