SUMMERDALE – Baldwin EMC is excited to announce the latest recipients of the Shining Star Student award. These students were nominated for displaying the Touchstone Energy characteristics of integrity, innovation, accountability and commitment to community.
Chloe Pitard, an eighth-grade student at Elberta Middle School, was named Baldwin EMC’s Shining Star Student of the Month for August. She was nominated by teacher Alyssa Corbitt.
Corbitt wrote in her nomination, “Chloe is an amazing student and leader. She is the Vice President of Membership for FCCLA (Family, Career and Community Leaders of America) and goes above and beyond to make all members feel appreciated. Most recently, she has been mailing all new members welcome letters. Additionally, she is passionate about community service and is helping coordinate a donation drive for Larose-Cut Off Middle School in Louisiana, which was greatly affected by Hurricane Ida. Furthermore, she is a friend to all her peers, always willing to lend a helping hand, and kind to everyone.”
Pitard was presented with a Shining Star Student certificate and a $50 Visa gift card.
Brenda Laurin Garcia Monroy, an eighth-grade student at Foley Middle School, was named Baldwin EMC’s Shining Star Student of the Month for September. She was nominated by teacher Stephanie Whiddon.
Whiddon wrote in her nomination, “Brenda is a very talented and bright student. She is extremely meticulous when it comes to her work. She is not the kind of student who does an assignment just to get done - she always goes the extra mile to make sure that it is not only done, but done to the best of her ability. She is an incredible artist and I've saved several of her projects from last year to use as examples because in most cases she set the standard. Brenda is also extremely kind and patient with her peers. She is a student that I would always trust to do the right thing, even when no one is looking.”
Monroy was presented with a Shining Star Student certificate and a $50 Visa gift card.
The awards were presented by WALA FOX 10 TV’s meteorologist Michael White and Baldwin EMC representative Kim Frank.
