September Student of the Month


        Christopher Mora, a future Aggie, is ranked sixth in his class and is in the top ten. Christopher is aware of the difficulty of getting this far. He has had to be extremely dedicated throughout high school.

“I had to stay very committed to excel in my classes by not being disruptive in class and by helping other students when I have the opportunity,” Christopher Mora said.

Mora received the September Student of the Month with great surprise.

“I feel honored receiving Student of the Month,” he said. “It was a very unexpected but a welcome surprise.”

There are certain qualities a student must have to be KHS’s Student of the Month, and Mora checks all the boxes.

“I believe the qualities I have allowed me to receive this student of the month,” Mora said. “Some of these qualities are my commitment to excel in my classes and helping other students when I have the opportunity.”

Mora has been very passionate about playing violin ever since the 6th grade.

“My biggest challenge so far would have to be this year’s All- Region music for orchestra,” Mora said.

         He doesn’t think of orchestra just as some class. He’s formed many friendships specifically because of this class and has made many memories.

“My most special memory I have here in KHS 100 percent has to be playing ‘Call of Duty’ in the orchestra room with my friends,” Mora said.
Through high school, Mora made a lot of friends, but he has to admit that his best and closest friend is Bradley Small.

“Bradley has always had my back ever since we were in Chandler. Even though we have completely different personalities, I always have the best time hanging out with him,” Mora said.

You wouldn’t be best friends if you aren’t complete opposites, right?

“Bradley is my homie for life,” Mora said.

Having that one person outside of school that we can rely on is essential, and for Mora it’s his dad.

“My dad always led me on the path that would be most beneficial to my future, because of this I am one of the top students in my class,” Mora said.

        Awards are not the reason Mora works hard, but he has them. “We’ve won sweepstakes every year so far in orchestra, and in tennis I’ve received 2 very special medals,” Mora said. Outside of school, Mora loves to read books or play video games with his best friend. He is heavily involved in church. Mora’s favorite community service is working at his church as a leader.

“I love the experience of speaking to a crowd and spreading the word of God,” Mora said.

Though his time in high school is coming to an end, Mora fears lots of things, however, he always runs this thought through his head.

“I fear a lot of things, but one won’t really know until they’re there,” Mora said.

He says:“Be strong and do not give up, for your work will be rewarded.” 2 Chronicles 15:7 NIV.
