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 Brianna Schermerhorn, pictured here with her former English teacher, Mrs. Morton. Brianna has been chosen as the Cairo-Durham High School Student of the Month for October 2020! As everyone is settling into our new system/mode of schooling this year, we are very pleased to be honoring one of our students who continuously maintains a positive attitude toward learning, life, and others. Brianna has a heart of gold and she demonstrates this as she fulfills her many roles here at Cairo-Durham and within our community as well. She is a member of both the National Honor Society and the National Art Society; she has worked diligently, enabling her to be on the high honor roll from grade six right up until now, as a senior here with us! Not only is she responsible academically, but Brianna also expresses her desire to serve others, to be a part of her school community, and to encourage school spirit through numerous club/sport memberships. Brianna is the president of the Yearbook Club, Vice-president of the Archive Magazine, a member of the Student Council, Varsity Volleyball team, and Indoor/Outdoor Track team. She has participated in our CD High School musicals for six years and the Marching Bank for five years. On her “down,” time, of which there can’t be very much; Brianna enjoys photography, singing/acting, volleyball, and hiking. She has served in our community by working at the Bavarian Manor, The Zoom Flume Waterpark, and The Red Rooster. She is currently shadowing a Lee Physical Therapy. We are more than honored to have such an inspiring student in our hallways and greatly appreciate all that she represents. She is genuinely an asset to all. Congratulations Brianna!
