RHS STUDENT OF THE WEEKRockdale High School teachers have selected senior Berenice Rodriguez Vences to be student of the week. The daughter of Leo and Carolyn Dubey, she was nominated by technology teacher Glenda Walker, who believes that she is one of the most positive students on campus.
“I’m happy to be nominated and would like to thank the teachers for thinking of me,” says Rodriguez. “I think it’s important for everyone to have a positive attitude.” She is active in Spanish Club, Spanish Honor Society and student council.
Rodriguez plans to attend Blinn College following graduation this year and will eventually transfer to Texas A&M University, where she hopes to earn a degree in education.
The student of the week program, sponsored by P.A.L., encourages students to exhibit positive character traits. Teachers were asked this week to nominate students who are positive and all nominees were placed in a drawing. Winners receive a sign in their yard announcing the honor and are featured on a bulletin board on campus.
