The Heard Citizen Student of the Month for September was awarded today to a sixth grader from Heard County Middle School. Ms. Alexis Nelms was nominated based on her overall contribution to her school in many areas. She not only maintains an A+ average currently, she has always been an A student throughout all of her earlier school years. According to one of her teachers:
“Alexis shows random acts of kindness on a daily basis and always does everything with a cheerful heart and attitude. She is helpful to teachers and to other students, particularly ones with special needs. She is a cheerleader so of course she displays amazing Braves spirit. If we could find some way to clone her, I would love a room full of little girls just like her.”
Although only in the sixth grade Alexis has already decided she wants to pursue a career where she can work with special needs children on an everyday basis. Congratulations to Alexis for being named The Heard Citizen’s Student of the Month for September. Great job!
