December Student of the Month



 Evelyn Phillips is the KHS Student of the Month for December. During Evelyn’s high school years she has been accepted into NHS, made the varsity track team, and has maintained A’s the entire school year. 

 “I’m a hard worker and I care about producing good quality work,” Evelyn said. 

 Going through high school, Evelyn’s biggest challenge she had to face would have to be her chemistry class but with all her hard work she was able to stay focused get her work done, and keep her grades up to her standards.

“I’m proud of my class rank and keeping all A’s,” Evelyn said.     

Evelyn says she really enjoyed art and it is her favorite activity that she is involved in at school. Outside of school she also enjoys painting and often likes to spend her spare time doing so.    

“I love art because I’m able to express myself in a creative way, with little to no restrictions,” Evelyn said. 

   Leaving KHS this year,  her favorite class she will be leaving behind is pre-cal. 

“I’ll miss my pre-cal class because of my hilarious teacher Mr. Parrish and my table group,” Evelyn said. 

While trying to manage her school life and home life Evelyn was able to find comfort in her English teacher, Mrs. Candice Fouse. She was able to help Evelyn navigate through high school and never failed to be there for her. Going through life, Evelyn will never forget her experiences with Mrs. Fouse because she was able to teach so much both emotionally and educationally. 

“Mrs. Fouse, my freshman and sophomore English teacher, has taught me the most. Not only educationally, but also emotionally. She was a mentor to me in a tough part of high school, and she helped me with a lot,” Evelyn said. 

When Evelyn sits and thinks about KHS in the future she will always remember her most memorable experiences with high school. 

“The people I’ve met all throughout and how they’ve impacted my life,” Evelyn said.  

She’ll also always remember her best friend who made a strong impact on her life. 

“Tiffany Rodriguez is my best friend because she understands who I am and has always supported me, no matter what. She never fails to make me laugh, and I can always be myself,” Evelyn said. 

Although once she is headed off to college the main thing she will miss is her family, especially her mom. 

“My mom is the most influential person in life because she’s a great person, and I’ve always looked up to her,” Evelyn said.

 While navigating life, Evelyn has one quote that will always stick with her.

“To focus on what’s in front of me, because I’d rather enjoy the moment and appreciate what I have rather than worry about the future or where I’ll end up,” Evelyn said.
