Cairo-Durham High School’s December Student of the Month is senior Sadie Hall! Currently, Sadie is enrolled in very rigorous classes, such as College American Government, College Physics, AP Calculus, and AP English Language, and is maintaining a 90% or higher in all of those classes. Her teacher, Mrs. Jones, describes her as, “a great role model and always doing what needs to get done with a smile and no complaints. She is involved in multiple school activities and events. While doing all of those non-academic activities, she is also able to bring a 100% to class and maintain a high average. She does whatever is asked and does it well. She is dependable and reliable. She always has a smile and a great attitude.” For these reasons, teachers and staff members are proud to name her Student of the Month. Outside of class, Sadie participates in the band, chorus, musical productions, National Honor Society, is on the basketball team and is the senior class Vice President. When not in school, Sadie enjoys reading, listening to music and spending time with family and friends. She states that her friends would describe her as, “the funniest person they know.” After high school, Sadie plans on attending college to study Mathematics, perhaps one day becoming a math teacher. Here she is pictured with one of her teachers, Mrs. Clermont. Great job Sadie, keep up the hard work being a wonderful role model for our CD Students!
