December Students of the Month

Jessica BrownLogan Pittman










Congratulations to the December Students of the Month, Jessica Brown for South Haven High School and Logan Pittman for South Haven Junior HIgh. Jessica was nominated because "When freshmen were asked who they could easily work with, Jessica’s name came up with reasons like “she is patient”, “she takes time to explain things”, and “she is nice to everyone”.  Logan received the honor because "Logan requests opportunity to give assistance to other students when his work is complete, offering encouragement and constructive feedback to his peers with the goal of helping them achieve their best."  Congratulations to these two individuals!
