Students of the Month honored at Lions Club meeting

CROSSVILLE — The first May meeting was reserved by the Fairfield Glade Lions Club to honor this year’s “Students of the Month” and their families. Nine of the 10 students were able to attend. Dakota Tillman, from The Phoenix School, was unable to attend because of prior commitments. Dakota was selected and honored for the month of April.

There was a full house of Lion members and guests in attendance. Retiring Director of Schools, Aarona Van Winkle was the guest speaker. She presented an inspiring video of a motivational speaker for the benefit of all to hear. She also took part in presenting engraved plaques to all the “Students of the Month” for a lasting memory of the month they were selected. The following is a list of the student, their high school and the special month of their selection:

Also in attendance were families of the students and their high school counselors. In addition, the new Director of Schools, Donald Andrews, was on hand to compliment the Lions for the “Student of the Month” Program and congratulate the students for their selection.

Each student was introduced with his or her family members and photos were taken to remember the occasion. “Student of the Month” Lion Chairman, Bob Cover, added his pride in being a part of this program and wished the students great success in their futures. Each student has the opportunity to apply for a part of the $6,000 Special Lion Scholarship Program. A committee of Lion members and the school counselors review the applications and select the winners. Winners are announced at their graduation ceremony.

The Lions “Student of the Month” Program has been an on going event for many years in the Cumberland County School System. It started with only Cumberland County High School with 10 students. It changed to include Stone Memorial High School when they opened with five students from each school. It now includes The Phoenix School with two students and four from CCHS and SMHS. Lion Program Chairman, Bob Cover, commented, “ I wish we could include more students in the selection but we have limits. There are many outstanding young people in our school system that requires recognition. We wish them much success in their desired fields and futures.”

  • 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.

    No one can get away with telling Naiad Kuhlman of Crossville that age is a barrier to exercise. The avid runner, personal trainer and instructor at Cumberland Medical Center’s Wellness Complex at Fairfield Glade won’t buy the excuse.

  • 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?
