Campbellsville High School recently announced its Eagle Excellence award winners for January.
Eagle Excellence awards honor students who excel in eight specific academic areas. Winners are chosen each month, and can come from any grade level.
Teachers nominate students for the awards based on their performance in the classroom and their exemplary leadership skills.
Awards are given to students in the areas of science, English, vocational studies, art, social studies, math, music and foreign language studies.
When receiving the award, students are given a certificate signed by CHS Principal Kirby Smith and Campbellsville Independent Schools Superintendent Mike Deaton.
Award winners also have their photographs featured in a wooden case hung beside the CHS office.
Students who were chosen for the honor this month include the following.
CHS senior Murphy Lamb receives the science award.
Murphy is talented in many areas. Watching as he pulls from his many areas of expertise – including mathematics, arts, language, science and more – to solve problems and articulate his wonderings is a pure joy for his teachers.
CHS freshman Ben Arachi receives the English award.
Ben is a self-driven student who performs above expectations on a regular basis. Creativity and leadership come naturally to him, thus making Ben an excellent classroom presence.
CHS junior Austin Carter receives the vocational studies award.
Austin is a second year wood shop student who has excelled in all his projects and tasks. His attitude is one of a kind, and he is always ready and willing to work.
CHS senior Kyrsten Hill receives the art award.

CHS junior Madison Dial receives the social studies award.
Her teachers say they have witnessed Madison be a leader in their classes. She goes above and beyond to prepare for class and assessments. More than that, she is also willing to share her knowledge with other students and encourages them to do their best as well.
Madison is organized, prepared and willing to put in the work needed to succeed.
