Russellville Jr/Sr High Principal Kim McDaniel has announced two new student recognition programs in addition to the honor roll. These are designed to include other aspects of being a successful student.

“Besides academic fortitude and perseverance, we know that in order for students to be successful they must academically achieve, but this can be greatly impacted by other factors such as attendance and behavior,” McDaniel says.

The Golden Panther award has been created to recognize and honor students in the three areas that contribute most to their overall success—grades, attendance and behavior. Those chosen must have all A’s, no absences/tardies and no behavior referrals for the nine-week period.

They will receive a Golden Panther card that will be good for various items and events during the next nine-week period.

The students who have achieved those levels will be recognized Tuesday at the board of education meeting. They are as follows:

Sixth Grade: Chaun Cheaney, Sania Dukes, Trynity Dukes, Karlee Elrod, Cassidy Farwick, Josh McMurry, Chloe Shumate.

Seventh Grade: Michael DeArmond, My Tran, Brandy West, Matthew Wilkerson, Chris Williams

Eighth Grade: Jacob Naylor, Javier Palomeque, Shawn Steele

Freshmen: Austin Coursey, Ashlee Gilbert, Brandon Johns, Jacob Lyne, Emma McReynolds, Will Mullen, Dillon Porter, Phillip Wilkerson, Adam Williams

Sophomores: Jordan Blick, Sam Cundiff, Delcie Houchens, Micah Naylor, Shayla Oberhausen

Juniors: Jaylee Chick, Jenny Ramsey, Nick Scarbrough

Seniors: Sarah Brown, Breann Thomas

McDaniel has also announced a designation called Principal’s List. Students qualify for this classification by being named to the All A or A/B honor roll, having no more than one excused absence for the nine weeks, and having no behavior referrals.
