Thunder Mountain High School honors three students as Falcons of the month for February. The students were nominated by TMHS faculty and staff, who had only kind words to share.
Sarah Milks is a senior at TMHS and was nominated by Wendy Rabung.
“Sarah is an excellent student aide. She goes above and beyond and really helps us out in a professional manner.”
Ivy Thompson, also a senior, was nominated by Janna Lelchuk. Thompson is a third-year Russian student.
“She is completely dedicated to Russian, learned quickly how to speak fluently and surprises everyone walking around school, speaking Russian, chatting in Russian on Facebook and writing all comments in blogs in Russian. She is a winner of the Russian Olympiad in 2010, she is a National Russian Language Laureate and she is a semi-finalist for the National Russian Exchange,” wrote Lelchuk.
Donna Johnson nominated Jenna Luhrs, a sophomore.
“Luhrs is an outstanding math student in my Algebra 2 and trigonometry class. She is meticulous in her work, attempting every problem and thoroughly showing her work. She is attentive in class, always on task, and participates in discussions. When she travels for her sports and activities, she makes up her work promptly,” shared Johnson.
The students were honored at a lunch put on by the TMHS parent-teacher organization. The guest speaker was Amanda Triplett from the University of Alaska Southeast.
