MISD November Board Recognitions

The November Students of the Month were Magnolia West High School student Candace Gordon and third grader Addison Oglesby from Smith Elementary. Candace is currently in the top 5% of her senior class and is highly involved at Magnolia West. She is a three year Academic All-District for volleyball, a two year Regional Qualifier and third place Regional Medalist in Pole Vault. She was named the most valuable in Field Events for her sophomore and junior years. She is involved academically with DECA, FFA, and the National Honor Society.

Addison is a ray of sunshine everyday! Her second grade teacher said, “We teach our students that integrity is doing the right thing when no one is watching and Addison is the perfect example of a student with integrity.” She loves science and has a passion for reading, especially cookbooks! She enjoys helping her mom cook and likes to bake special treats for her class and teachers. She exhibits all the traits of a role model student at Smith Elementary.

Community partner Emerus Community Hospital of Tomball honored both of the students of the month with a gift certificate for all of their hard work.

Dr. Todd Stephens honored Carolyn Foster with the Superintend Award. She joined the MISD Food Service Department in 2011 and works at Lyon Elementary. Carolyn brings a positive attitude, love for children and a willingness to help others. Her dedication to MISD and her love for children is why she was selected as the recipient for the Superintendent Award.
