BIG SKY – The Big Sky School District honored four students for their leadership skills in September, as part of its Student of the Month/Terrific Kids of the Month program.

Teachers choose two “terrific kids” from kindergarten through fifth grades and two “students of the month” in middle and high school, recognizing them based on a different theme every month.

An announcement is made over the intercom, and the students are called into the office to be congratulated. In addition, the k-5 honorees are rewarded with a burger from The Corral, and the chosen middle and high school students get pizza from Blue Moon Bakery.

Hensley_Tucker_295High School Student of the Month: Tucker Hensley

Whether in the hallways, in the classroom, or on the basketball court, Tucker Hensley is a leader at LPHS every day. He brings out the best in those around him, is the first to offer a helping hand, inspires confidence in others, and has an infectious, cheerful attitude. On our expedition trip this fall, Tucker voluntarily assumed a leadership role by helping others, taking charge and getting things done. It has been said, “A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way.” Tucker fits this quote and earns the honor of LPHS student of the month for leadership.
