Escalon High School, in cooperation with the Escalon Sunrise Rotary Club, has announced the latest Student of the Month selections. Juniors Brooklyn Berry, Kayleigh Inman and Danielle Lawrence were recently honored with the award.

Assistant Principal Stephanie Parker nominated the duo of Berry and Inman, as they are serving together as the Homecoming Commissioners for this current school year.

“They have successfully planned and coordinated two Homecoming weeks this school year and are excited in assisting me in recruiting new commissioners for the upcoming school year,” said Parker. “These two exceptional young ladies are innovative, hard-working, and organized which allowed them to be an outstanding team.”

Inman, as well as being part of the ASB team, has played soccer the last two years at Escalon and also plays golf recreationally. She has been on the honor roll for two years, received awards in soccer, has been active in leadership since seventh grade and is involved in the youth program at The House church in Modesto.

“I would like to thank my mom and dad for being so encouraging,” Inman said. “Also my teachers for being so understanding and Mrs. Parker for all her help throughout the Homecoming process.”

Berry, along with her ASB duties, is a member of Friends Helping Friends and is part of the Ag Pest Control Team for Escalon FFA. She also served on the Redemption Road church worship team and has helped teach children’s church. She is involved in youth group and passed out blankets for the elderly at Christmas.

In school, she has been on the honor roll and received the most spirited award for cheer, she plays tennis at Del Rio where she won first place in the Davis cup and she enjoys playing the piano.

“I would like to thank my parents for always encouraging me to be the best I can be,” Berry said, “my tennis coach for always pushing me to be better and God for grace and strength.”

Nominating Danielle Lawrence for the honor was teacher Andrew Beam, who classified her as an “outstanding” individual.

“She is always eager to learn and participate in class and brings such a positive vibe to the classroom setting,” Beam explained. “She consistently performs as one of the highest scoring students on tests, quizzes and homework. She is the type of student that the Rotary Club is looking for in terms of being someone with morals, values, and passion for Escalon High School.”

A member of Friends Helping Friends, CIF, Fellowship of Christian Athletes and Key Club, Lawrence attends Escalon Covenant Church and is involved in the weekly youth group, helping out as a leader for the Awanas children’s program through the church as well. She received her Academic Block E last year, has received two academic teacher awards and has previously earned recognition as a Student of the Month while an eighth grader at El Portal.

“I would like to thank my family and friends for pushing me to try my best in school,” said Lawrence. “Also Mr. Beam for nominating me, I really enjoy having him as a teacher.”

The trio of students was recognized at a recent breakfast meeting of the Escalon Sunrise Rotary Club for their achievements.
