Alexia Widrig- Mt. Pleasant High School Nominated by Mindy Wischmeyer- Business Management

I am pleased to nominate Alexia for the My104.3 Student of the Month.  Alexia has been a student in Business Management at the Gratiot-Isabella Technical Education Center for two years. She is also a co-op in the MPHS Counseling Office.  Her dedication and determination are two of her greatest assets.

Alexia is organized, driven, committed, shows great initiative, and leads by example. She is the first one to jump to a project and will give her all—and then some—and be the last person standing when the project is finished. She is well respected by her peers and the adults who are lucky enough to come in contact with her. Alexia has a smile that will light up a room. She was recently accepted into the National Technical Honor Society for her exceptional CTE performance.

Alexia’s enthusiasm and passion for helping others is admirable. She is very detail oriented and has been able to successfully balance a rigorous academic career while participating in a variety of extracurricular activities. Alexia is the ultimate role model and gives of herself 110% unconditionally. To say she is a team player is a gross understatement.

Alexia is an amazing young lady—one in a million–and very deserving of being named My 104.3 Student of the Month.

Calvin Keyes- Mt. Pleasant High School Nominated by Pat Onstott- Digital Media

Calvin Keyes has been in Digital Media for over three years and has excelled in the area of broadcasting and multimedia design.  He is a tremendously talented on-air anchor and play by play broadcaster.  In addition, he has produced a number of promotional materials utilizing his audio/video and graphic design skills.

Calvin has tremendous drive and determination.  He has a huge passion for broadcasting.  He can be seen on the weekly Oil Spill video announcements and on the School Broadcasting Program events (football, basketball, volleyball, etc.).  He has demonstrated the ability to prepare, practice and perform with style, confidence and precision.  In addition to his great commenting skills, Calvin also possesses a variety of multimedia and interpersonal skills.  These skills have been on display at his GI-TEC Co-op job.  He is responsible for producing a variety of graphic design edits and advertisements.  Calvin is a leader amongst his peers and has the ambition to get things done.

As talented as Calvin is as a broadcaster, he is even more deserving as a student.  He possesses a tremendous amount of character, integrity and trustworthiness.  He has the ability to be self-motived and guided by his own high standards. He possesses an unbelievable degree of eagerness and determination to complete projects and tasks with a great level of detail.  Along with his academic workload, Calvin has participated in a number of extra-curricular activities (Captain of the MPHS Soccer and Hockey teams, School Broadcasting Program, GI-TEC Co-op, National Honor Society, Student Senate, Campus Life and various volunteering activities).

Calvin Keyes is a great example of

what the “Student of the Month” should be.

Brady Gruss- Sacred Heart Academy Nominated by Kyle Campbell Small Engines

Brady is a senior from SHA, an exceptional small engines student, and a joy to have in class. He is always willing to lend a hand where needed and works well with his peers. Brady has shown improvement in his skills so far this school year and continues to put forth his best efforts both in the classroom and in the repair shop. Aside from school, Brady plays both football and baseball for his home school of SHA. He enjoys watching a good game of either sport when he has some down time. I look forward to seeing what Brady can accomplish this year. Thanks for all your hard work!

Kaylee Bushong- Beal City High School nominated by Kerry Lockwood Accounting:

Kaylee is a student that has been working hard to follow her career pathway in accounting. She has taken accounting at GI-TEC during her Junior and Senior year.  Kaylee has a natural ability in the accounting area. In the classroom, she works hard to understand the concepts at a deeper level.  Kaylee is currently working independently on the Advanced Accounting curriculum.  This curriculum is not easy and often can be frustrating.  She takes in on with pure positivity.  Kaylee always tries to solve each problem on her own before seeking help.  To prove her abilities Kaylee was hired at Blystone & Bailey Accounting firm as a Co-Op.   Kaylee has taken all these responsibilities with school and work on with great professionalism and eagerness.  Outside of the classroom and her Co-Op job, Kaylee stays very busy with softball, volleyball, and Business Professionals of America.  One of Kaylee’s best qualities is her personality.  She is a friendly and caring individual.  Her peers think highly of her and look to her for direction.  She brightens up any room she walks into because she is always smiling and kind to everyone around her. Kaylee would be a great pick for Student of the Month.

Marlee is a senior at MPHS and a highly successful third year Marketing student. She has developed into a true leader and role model for other students. She is a member of Business Professionals of America, the premier Career and Technical Student Organization for students pursuing careers in business management, office administration, information technology and other related career fields. As a strong leader, she was selected for The School Store Management Team for a second year. Marlee worked directly with school administration as they developed a reopening plan for The School Store that complies with the new health and safety requirements. Marlee has also shown her strong work ethic as she is a returning office assistant co-op at Mt. Pleasant Middle School.

Lastly, Marlee’s positive attitude, strong work ethic, and initiative allow her to see what needs to be done and accomplish the tasks all while never looking for recognition.
