Cumberland Regional High School congratulates the April 2022 CRHS Students and Staff of the Month

Students and staff were nominated and selected because they demonstrated characteristics which align to living the C.O.L.T.S. Life at Cumberland Regional High School:
Caring
Optimistic
Leadership
Team Player
Self Discipline

Student of the Month, 9th grade: Rony Martinez Tejada
"Rony shows the C.O.L.T.S. Life characteristics of Caring and Team Player regularly in our art classroom. While working on his own projects, Rony will take time to help other students with their understanding of a project's next step. Rony also helps translate for my beginning Spanish (¡muchas gracias!). I appreciate his kindness and recognize Rony as a talented artist who recently was first to complete a very strong drawing in class."
 
Student of the Month, 9th grade: Sanaa' Blackwell
"Sanaa' is a pleasure to have in class. She is one that always asks great questions, asks for help when needed, and always is in a good mood. She is well liked by her peers and is willing to work with anyone no matter the situation. Sanaa' is always prepared, organized, and on time with her work. Keep up the great work!"
 
Student of the Month, 10th grade: David Cascais
"David 'Auggie' Cascais is one of the friendliest students at CRHS. He is not only focused on successfully completing his assignments, but also takes the time to focus on being a great friend. Auggie is the example of what living the C.O.L.T.S. Life is every single day. Keep up the great work!"
 
Student of the Month, 10th grade: Shamoya Whyte
"I chose to nominate Shamoya because of her academic integrity, her work ethic in my class and other classes, and her overall positive attitude in everything she does. She is very eager to learn and is a high academic student. She values her education, and her attitude and actions show that."
 
Student of the Month, 11th grade: Nicholas Gibson
"Nick is a great student in my Latin class -- always cheerfully willing to try new material. He works so hard to help our school community with his activity in clubs and achievements, but never lets his extracurricular activities interfere with his schoolwork. Well done, Nick!"
 
Student of the Month, 11th grade: Neerja Patel
"It has been a pleasure to have Neerja as a student this semester. She has really excelled in her Biomedical Science course. She is kind and helpful to her classmates, and she is really working hard. Neerja has also displayed leadership qualities in her HOSA Sports Medicine group and has become a dedicated member of the club. I'm so proud of how much Neerja has grown over the years. Great job, Neerja!"
 
Student of the Month, 12th grade: Gage Russo
"Gage is a fantastic student, always helping his fellow classmates and is so supportive. Gage dedicates his own time to help the students in my 4th-block class because he loves the work and helping out people."
 
Student of the Month, 12th grade: Renee Sheppard
"Renee is one of our awesome senior CRHS students. Over the past four years Renee has participated in multiple sports, clubs, Student Council, and our ECHS program. However, I am nominating Renee because of her ability to be a team player. Renee is always there to support her peers and help them in any way she can. She has helped students who are struggling with their classes, and she has stepped up when planning for school-wide events."
 
STUDENT-ATHLETES OF THE MONTH
Boys' Track: Duray Rainner
"Duray is a great athlete who puts his all into every workout, meet, and warm-up he does. Duray has quickly become one of our top runners, not through luck but through his consistent hard work and determination. When asked to try something new, he never complains or balks at the idea. Rather, he takes it in stride and puts his best foot forward. He is somebody that every athlete on the team can look up to! We love having him on the team and are proud of all he has been able to accomplish this season."
 
STAFF OF THE MONTH
Lori Oelschlegel
"Lori has been such a helpful addition to my classroom in the short time that she has been a member of the CRHS community. The way that she truly and deeply cares for each student in the class is unsurpassed. Students feel comfortable asking her for help, because she has shown them that she cares about their needs, both in and out of the classroom. I know that coming into the high school setting was a big adjustment, but Lori has adapted amazingly well. She has been able to take information from the lessons I teach to better assist the students, which is just another way that she goes above and beyond."
 
Dave Bostwick
"Dave is one of my favorite people to work with! We get along great, and we work well alongside one another in the classroom. He is such a positive influence on his students and a wonderful role model for them! And of course, there are his jokes, which make me and the kids laugh every day!"
 
Amanda Rivera 
"Amanda deserves some recognition for the hard work she's been doing to support our students. She comes in every day always prepared to juggle everything thrown her way. Any time that someone needs help with a student, she is always there to provide advice and consult. Amanda truly cares about her students and proves that every day."
 
We applaud these exemplary students and staff for their efforts and thank them for their contributions to the Colts family.
