Ashleigh Wallace Named Student of the Month
For House District #3
Ashleigh Wallace, the daughter of Geoff and Donna Wallace, and a senior at Sulphur Springs High School, has been chosen by State Representative Erwin Cain, as the Student of the Month for House District 3. Wallace was described by her nominating teacher, Charlese McCauley, as "the best leader I have had as a Drum Major in my 24 years of teaching!"
Wallace was nominated along with a nmber of other students from across House District 3, in an effort coordinated by Rep. Cain to recognize excellence in youth. Cain, on Friday morning, personally presented Ashleigh with a resolution from the State of Texas praising her for her academic achievements combined with her service work and community involement.
Rep. Cain each month solicits voluntary nominations from school systems throughout the district. All of the students nominated are worthy of recognition, according to Rep. Cain, and in the sifting and evaluation one or two students district-wide "float" to the top of the stack and are chosen for this honor. In making the presentation, Cain said, "Ashleigh is a dynamo of activity. In addition to serving the Sulphur Springs High School Wildcat Band as Drum major during this, her Senior year, she has run competitively in Crosscountry since her Frishman year, is active in Our Savior Lutheran Church, and is a member of the National Honor Society and the Fellowship of Christian STudents. She competes academically in UIL Literary Criticism and in Ready Writing. She participated in the Hopkins County Chamber of Commerce Leadership Class, and is also active in HKK Service Society. We should all be proud of Ashley Wallace because she is an outstanding young lady, and I can't wait to hear what she will achieve."
Ashleigh Wallace is presented with the Texas Sate Resolution, by State Rep. Erwin Cain, as her parents, left,
