Two Students of the
Month received recognition at the Sublette
County School District No. 1 board of trustees
meeting conducted in Bondurant on Oct.
10. Students who were unable to make the trip
will be recognized at the November meeting.
Skyline Academy honored junior Jax Jacobson
as Student of the Month for September.
Holli Redmond, a teacher at Skyline,
nominated Jacobson for exhibiting the trait
of respect on a daily basis.
Jacobson “consistently has shown respect
to faculty, other students and himself,” Redmond
wrote to the board.
Jacobson sets a “positive example” for
other students at Skyline Academy by “participating
in class discussions, using work time
wisely and having a positive attitude toward
gaining an education,” Redmond continued.
“I appreciate the maturity level at which
Jacobson conducts his conversations and actions,”
Redmond said. “(Jacobson) is a tremendous
asset to Skyline Academy.”
Pinedale Middle School history teacher
Mitch Irrgang nominated eighth-grader Wyatt
Griffin as Student of the Month for modeling
the character trait of responsibility.
Griffin approaches academics, relationships
with his peers, teachers and other adults
with a positive attitude and responsibility, Irrgang
wrote to the board.
Griffin shows an “eagerness to excel in
academics,” and is always “proactive and
responsible in letting teachers know” of absences
and “staying ahead of interruptions in
class time,” Irrgang continued.
Griffin approaches group projects with
“enthusiasm” and is willing to work with all
students, a “sign of his maturity,” Irrgang
said. Griffin displays self-confidence to take
on challenges that others his age may shy
“Griffin is a student who impresses me
with his jack-of-all-trades personality, who
treats people with respect and honesty,”
Irrgang wrote. “When Griffin says he is
going to do something, he does it, and ...
demonstrates to those around him that responsibility
is a habit he has practiced for
many years now.”
