March Student of the Month


Senior Mari Camposano is the March Student of the Month. Mari is in the top ten in her graduating class and she said this is one of her proudest achievements in high school.

“Being top ten of my class makes my twelve years of school feel worth something,” Camposano said. “I
am proud I could achieve such an academic goal.”

Camposano has been involved in tennis from 2017-2024. For Mari, tennis has always been a safe place for her.

“I love playing the game of tennis and challenging myself to do better,” she said. “I love playing doubles with my partner Tera Harrison and creating an effective plan to win.”

Camposano participates in the Fellowship of Christian Students group in addition to playing sports. She has a busy schedule at church to add to the time she spends with tennis and her studies. Camposano goes to First Baptist Church.

“Singing in my church’s choir
is my favorite activity to participate in outside of school,” Camposano said. “It’s always fun getting to sing. Singing has also helped me grow out of my shell.”

In her spare time one of her favorite things is to read her Bible. She feels there’s always room to gain a better or closer relationship with God. Along with reading her Bible,

she also loves spending time with her friends.

“My best friend is Allison Williams,” Camposano said. “She has been there for me in my darkest times as well as joyous ones. She has also led me to the Lord.”

Camposano has many qualities that are essential to be student of the month. All throug high school Camposano has had all A’s. She has worked hard and been dedicated to her studies during her time in high school.

“My biggest challenge in high school has been not giving up on my grades,” Camposano said. “There have been multiple times where I was mentally exhausted and wanted to stop doing all my assignments; however, I persisted and now the finish line is ahead of me.”

Students go through challenges throughout high school and with the right teacher to help, everything gets better.

“Mrs. Parrish has had the biggest impact on me because of her bright personality,” Camposano said. “I want to be like her and grow my faith in the same manner.”

Along with Mrs. Parrish, Camposano’s college professer has truly made an impact on her as well.

“Mrs. Truman has been the one to teach me all about grammar,” Camposano said. “With her help, I learned how to write properly and compose essays that are actually

worth reading,” Camposano said. After graduating from KHS,

Camposano intends to attend Tyler Junior College.

“TJC may not be a prestigious college, but it offers the degree I plan to pursue,” Camposano said. “I think it is a great college to attend because of the multiple majors they offer as well as the affordability.” Camposano plans to major in dental hygiene. She’s always found the structure and design of teeth so fascinating.

“My main goal would be to help others feel comfortable in their smile,” Camposano said.

Seniors face roadblocks and/or difficult decisions during their last year of school. One of the roadblocks is thinking about the future.

“I fear growing up,” Camposano said. “Right now, high school is just school, but in college it’s so much more,” Camposano said.

As nervous as the future makes her, Camposano is also eager for her new beginnings and is prepared to graduate.

“The day I walk across that stage to graduate will forever imprint my mind,” she said. “I can’t wait until all of my hard work pays off. In
all things, I strive to do all that I
can do and do it all for the Lord,” Camposano said.
