Several students were recognized by the Red Bud School Board at their Oct. 19 meeting.

Red Bud Elementary Principal Ryan McClellan noted that they have changed the Royal Way program at the school and how students are recognized.

Last year, an assembly was held each quarter, and a student from each of the classes was recognized. Now, McClellan reported, they are recognizing students monthly, but each teacher is not required to pick a student to be recognized. These selected students will still be honored at an assembly.

We’re going for quality over quantity,” he explained. “We want to recognize those that truly deserve it.”

McClellan then recognized three students.

First was eighth grader Holden Chambers, who was nominated by computer teacher Jessica Green.

The second recognized student was fifth grader Trent Sternberg, who was nominated by fifth grade teacher Stephanie Lerch.

The third recognized elementary student was seventh grader Bailey Fulton, who was nominated by sixth grade social studies teacher CJ Cruser, junior high math teacher Jill Grohmann and band teacher Matt Fisher.

From the high school, Principal Rob Pipher also wanted to recognize two students. Seniors Blake Cowell and Drew Kueker have been broadcasting the school’s football and volleyball games, doing video and play by plays. “They’ve worked very hard, going above and beyond,” noted Pipher. In addition, the pair have also gotten some business sponsors to pay for ads on their programing.
