Dr. Matt Smith named Emilee Morris, Centralia High School sophomore, the February Student of the Month.
Morris is the daughter of Jared and Candy Morris, and she has three siblings: Laura Shaffer, Izzy Morris and Jasper Morris. She was very surprised and honored to receive the CHS Student of the Month recognition.
Mrs. Kayla Fadler, CHS Biology teacher, nominated Morris for this award.
“I nominated Emilee for Student of the Month because she exhibits really great character qualities. We had a student move into the district who was placed in Emilee’s hour of Biology. As soon as the new student walked into class, Emilee didn’t hesitate to introduce herself and invited the new student to sit by her,” Fadler said.
Fadler also mentioned that Morris is a great example for other students. She always participates in class discussions and works well with her peers.
At the high school, Morris is involved in Quiz Bowl and Drama. Outside of school, she loves to make music. She mostly plays the guitar.
Morris’s favorite class is Drama. “Darr is a great and funny teacher. That class [Drama] is chaotic in a fun way,” she said.
In the future, Morris hopes to go to Mizzou. She also wants to be a musician.
