Summit Daily/Kristin Skvorc

Recently Summit High School recognized Matthias Krainz, Mason Greene, Kelsey Prim and Jose Robles for November’s students with outstanding character.Matthias Krainz was selected as freshman student of the month. He was nominated by Maria Carrion-Kozak, Kristy McClain and Darrick Wade for his inquisitive nature. In her nomination, Carrion-Kozak said, “Matthias takes initiative, shows his desire to learn and continuously asks questions in class. He has shown his interest in foreign language and learning about Latin-American cultures. Matthias works hard in class, is willing to help others and his work shows pride and careful thinking.”Kristy McClain agrees with Carrion-Kozak and adds, “Matthias is quite serious about his studies and completes all of his projects and homework completely and thoughtfully.”

Darrick Wade said that his entire mechanical drawing class benefits from Matthias’ great attitude, his eagerness to take on new challenges, and his participation in class discussions. Jim Braun nominated sophomore, Mason Greene for his strong work ethic. Mr. Braun explained how Mason gave up several hours of our recent snow day to come out to the Tiger Field and shovel snow out of the bleachers for the home football game. Working side by side with Mason showed Braun that he is not afraid of hard work and he knows from past encounters that Mason is polite and respectful. Finally, Braun says, “These qualities will serve Mason well as he moves through high school and into college.”Senior Kelsey Prim was nominated by Cathie Hill, Scott Porter and Terri Vantiger for her outstanding effort and achievement.

Hill said, “Kelsey is extremely hard-working, committed, and involved in theatre productions at SHS.” “Kelsey was the stage manager for ‘The Miracle Worker’ last month, which involved many hours of (thankless) outside work, creativity, and organization.”Scott Porter seconds the nomination of Kelsey for her work on the theatre production. Porter said, “Kelsey spent countless hours, as the stage director, behind the scenes assuring that the production of ‘The Miracle Worker’ would be a huge success. Kelsey attended every rehearsal, meeting, and work session without fail for the past three months, while she organized nearly every aspect of the production throughout the run of the show. She worked closely with both the director and producer effectively dealing with and solving every challenge that came up on a continual and daily basis.” Porter commends Kelsey for her outstanding effort and success. He declared, “Without her efforts the show would never have been the hit that it was.”Vantiger wraps up Kelsey’s nomination by addressing the fact that Kelsey is always willing to help inside and outside of class. Vantiger said, “She is not only caring about her fellow classmates, but she is also very knowledgeable, very dedicated and very organized in her school work.”The final student of the month is senior Jose Robles. Robles has been nominated by Rick Karden, Nanci Morse and Bethany Lambrecht for showing empathy, compassion and respect toward his teachers and peers.

Karden explains that Jose goes out of his way to help other students in his classes. He said, “(Jose) always has a great attitude and is exceptionally polite. He is an outstanding example of good character.”Nanci Morse said that although she has not taught Jose for several years, he always greets her in the hallway and asks how she is doing. Ms. Morse commends Jose as she says, “He seems to treat students and adults alike with utmost respect.”Bethany Lambrecht said, “Jose Robles is probably the most polite student in our school.” To nominate a Summit High student for outstanding character, call Erick Finnestead or Dorothy Sabo at (970) 547-9311.
