RHS STUDENT OF THE WEEKRockdale High School teachers have selected sophomore Melinda Perez to be student of the week. The daughter of Marco and Leesa Perez, she was nominated by agricultural science teacher Melissa Brantley, who believes that she is one of the most honest students on campus.
Perez is active in RHS Big Blue Band, robotics, theater arts, construction challenge, UIL and FFA. She hopes to attend the University of Texas following graduation, but feels she has more to accomplish in high school first.
“I hope to make a positive impact on RHS before I graduate,” Perez said. “I really like to help others when I can.”
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 honest 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.
