Lions honor Shaw as September Student of the Month

CROSSVILLE — Cumberland County High School counselor Dawn Shaw selected student Madison Hicks to receive “Student of the Month” honors from the FFG Lions Club. The Fairfield Glade Lions Club assigned the month of September for this award.

This has been the procedure for over twenty years. The high school counselors select 10 students on the basis of good grades, participation in school activities, other activities in the community and intent to attend college. The Fairfield Glade Lions Club assigns the specific month. Currently four students are selected from CCHS and SMHS with two students from the Phoenix School. Students and their parents along with the school counselors are honored at a special Lions Club dinner meeting in May each year. An engraved plaque is presented to each of 10 students with his/her name and their special month.

Madison Hicks certainly meets all requirements for this award. She has received many “Highest Average Awards” for her grades in Algebra, English, Chemistry, Geometry, French and Theatre. Her school activities include French Club, BETA Club where she served as secretary for two years, Student Council, treasurer of the Class of 2014, vice president of Young Democrats for two years, Archery Club, Student Advisors Coalition, Leo Club, Executive Council for Youth and Government, Pep Club and Advanced Choir.

In addition, Madison was selected to compete at Roane State Academic Festival in Poetic Interpretation and Monologue for three years. She has also been an active member for three years in the CCHS Jet Theatrix, appearing in five shows. Her other activities involve volunteer work and performing in five shows at the Cumberland County Playhouse, working as a sales associate at The Screen Door Company in Crossville for one summer and four years with vocal performance lessons.

Her hobbies during her “spare” time include singing, acting, painting, learning French, yoga, modern dance and writing. She plans to enroll at the University of Tennessee with a major in Public Relations. I am certain that her school activities, singing and acting involvement will continue during her college years.

Lion Bob Cover, chairman of the “Student of the Month” Committee, commented,” It is overwhelming and very encouraging to be a part of these young students' lives for a short period of time. The future of our country is in very good hands with the dedication and determination expressed by these young adults. I know that there are many other students besides the 10 who should be identified by the Lions Club. But we are grateful that other organizations also recognize and award students for their efforts.  All of the students certainly deserve a standing ovation.”

  • County residents urged to vote

    Cumberland County has around 39,000 registered voters, as well as a strong reputation for voter participation.  However, as of press time on Tuesday, only 4,300 residents had taken advantage of early voting for the Aug. 7 primary and general elections. Local officials are predicting less than 50 percent of registered voters will cast their vote in the 14 days of early voting, plus election day. Only 23 percent of registered county voters participated in the May elections.

  • Enjoying nature.jpg Get your mink coat on the road

    It is interesting what animals you see crossing the roads sometimes. When animals cross roads, you can get a look at them, that wouldn't be possible if they stayed inside the cover of trees or grass. Sometimes, it is just a fleeting glance and you aren't sure what you saw. When you go into the woods looking for animals, they usually hide or leave the area before you even know they are around. But, roads are wide open with no cover. Also, most mammals are nocturnal, so they are out when we aren't. Anytime that I am on a two-lane road at night, I am always watching intently for wildlife in the headlights.

  • Abacus Column: Tennessee the third most corrupt state in the U.S.?

    According to a recent article in Time magazine, Tennessee is ranked third among U.S. States in political corruption. I am not sure how they measure such crime in order to make such a charge. Does some purveyor of statistics identify the number of elected officials proved guilty in a court of law; or merely charged with corruption?

A Nashville animal shelter volunteer asked if AT4P could take two severely abused English Pointer mixes.
