Campbellsville High School recently announced its Eagle Excellence award winners for February.
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 Caroline McMahan receives the science award.
Caroline accepts a challenge head-on, works with a joyful spirit, willingly puts in extra time and effort and has a great mind.
CHS sophomore Ryan Kearney receives the English award.
Ryan has great skill in crafting well-written essays that demonstrate his ability to find not just surface, but much deeper meanings, in a text. He clearly, concisely and thoroughly explores and communicates ideas in a way that many students cannot. On top of this high level thinking, Ryan consistently and responsibly completes his work, leads classroom activities and demonstrates a level of respect for his teachers and peers that is quite impressive.
CHS junior Caleb Hughes receives the vocational studies award.
Caleb has passed Work Keys and National Institute for Metalworking Skills certification. As a result, he is career ready. He is also an outstanding student in the machine tool program.
CHS senior Dalton Ballantine receives the art award.
He is a great example of Eagle Excellence in the art classroom. Every day, Dalton is striving to learn more to become a better artist. He asks questions about techniques and materials in order to take what he learns in the classroom so he can practice and do artwork at home.
CHS freshman Blake Allen receives the social studies award.
Blake is worthy of this honor because of his work ethic and genuine interest in the content that is taught in his AP human geography class. He has worked very hard outside of the classroom to ensure continued success on in-class assessments. Blake is also eager to learn each and every day and is very engaging in his questions and thoughts about the content discussed in class.
CHS freshman Taliyah Hazelwood receives the math award.
She is hard working, cooperative and mathematical minded. Her teachers say she is a pure joy to have in class.
CHS freshman Abie Angel receives the music award.
