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.”

    On a recent Friday morning, a friend and I were playing the back nine of Dorchester Golf course. At the tee box on the unique par three 13th Hole, we met a young gentleman named Rob Krumple. Rob is a course maintenance employee reporting to Dorchester Superintendent Mike Wilson. My friend and I often comment about the excellent condition of our courses and since we had opportunity to pass a compliment on to Rob, we did.
