Farmer recognizes students, teachers for accomplishments
During his presentation on Union County High School at Monday’s school board meeting, Principal Kevin Farmer recognized several students. Chloe Rector was honored for scoring a 5 on her AP English exam. Riley Austin, Alaney Lee, and Kagen Wilson were honored as AP Scholars, finishing with scores of 3 or better in 3 or more AP exams. He said a couple of teachers deserved special recognition, as well. Kristina Stollger, an English teacher at the high school, was the district teacher of the year. Stacy Fuentes, a chemistry and integrated sciences teacher at the high school, won WYFF’s Golden Apple Award. She was nominated by students Ayanna Johnson and Zamoriah Booker, who were also recognized at the meeting.
Prior to the meeting, students involved with Jacket Java presented coffee to the school board members. Along with another program titled Bee Creations, which features handmade wreaths, bracelets, buttons, and more, it is teaching the credential program students entrepreneurial skills, including handling money, ordering supplies, and soft skills. The money made goes to the Office of Special Services.
Farmer recognized Coach Jon Langenfeld and three members of the high school wrestling team as they compete to earn a fourth-straight region title this year. He also recognized Chandler Austin and Lily Shetley for attending and participating in the Miracle League All-Star Game in Houston, Texas. Finally, he honored Mary Katherine James, who became just the 5th tennis player since 2004 to compete in both the state singles tournament and the North-South All-Star Classic.
