The Knights of Columbus-John Marshall High School Students of the Month for September are freshmen Conner Blatt and Trixie Calissie.
Trixie performs a variety of school activities such as 4-H, softball, archery and strings. John Marshall High School Assistant Principal Geno Polsinelli recognizes Trixie’s hard work in the classroom. “Trixie’s character and work ethic in the classroom are second to none,” said Polsinelli. “She’s really made an impression with her teachers at the start of the school year. Trixie is involved in many different aspects of school and serves around the community as well.”
Trixie feels delighted to be Student of the Month. “It’s special to me because I haven’t been here very long and I’m glad that people notice I can do well. My great grandfather, before he passed, was a big part of Knights of Columbus. So I know he would be really proud of me,” said Trixie.
Conner is involved with the golf team and participates in many different clubs and activities. Polsinelli believes Conner’s involvement with school activities and willingness to give a helping hand made him deserving of the title. “Conner has a great family support system, and his work ethic to start off this school year has made him a good recipient of this award,” explained Polsinelli. “He’s very helpful around the classroom, and his grades have proven he’s top notch in the class.”
Conner is thrilled to be Student of the Month. “This is awesome,” Conner said. “It’s a great honor to be in such a big school and be picked for this award.”
