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 Angelo Acompora, chosen as the Cairo-Durham High School Student of the Month for December 2019! Angelo has chosen one of his favorite teachers, Mr. Matthew Brooks, to be pictured with him as he receives this honor! Angelo is a junior here at CD and he has won the hearts of both teachers and students alike with his respectful and friendly personality. One of the key components to success in high school, is being present! This is something that Angelo recognizes. He has received the perfect attendance award and clearly understands the importance of responsibility to one’s commitments. He works hard and appreciates all of the support and guidance that his teachers provide. Angelo enjoys graphic design, basketball and gaming as well as the great outdoors. Fortunately for him, he has found several different places of employment that allow him to spend time outside! He has worked with landscaping, caring for lawns, shoveling snow, and stacking wood. It’s evident that Angelo understands the benefits of being physically fit as well as academically fit! We are thrilled to be recognizing Angelo for all of his efforts and proud to have such a fine student at Cairo-Durham.
