Lions honor Jenkins as Student of the Month

CROSSVILLE — Phoenix School counselor Breanna Van Winkle selected Tianisha Jenkins (who likes to be called Tia) as a “Student of the Month” because of her current grades and desire to attend college. The Fairfield Glade Lions Club chose the month of November for her honor.

Tia doesn’t have any time to participate in school activities because of her home life. Her main love is spending as much time as possible with her husband, Simmy, and their one-year-old son, Anthony. She also spends as much time as possible working for GG’s Pizza and Subs and playing with a 5-month-old Chow puppy named Cinnamon. In addition, she likes to play football and a little bit of baseball whenever a game can be organized.

She lists her hobbies as helping older people with any needs, shopping and keeping her mind active by playing criminal video games to solve the mysteries. Her future plans after high school are to attend Tennessee Tech University in Cookeville for four years and continue into medical field schooling. After completing all that she may consider joining the Army or Navy.

Lions Club Program Chairman Bob Cover continually brags about the young male/female students he meets for a short time period. He feels certain that they will carry out their future plans and become active and involved citizens wherever they reside. One of Bob’s greatest joys is inviting the student and his/her parents to a special Lions Club dinner in May of each year. A special engraved plaque is presented with their name and month as a lifelong remembrance of their achievement. In addition, their parents and school counselors are recognized and congratulated.    

The FFG Lions Club have been honoring 10 high school senior students each year for over 20 years as “Students of the Month.” All 10 use to come from CCHS. Then, five came from SMHS when they opened and five from CCHS and now two are selected from the Phoenix School along with four from CCHS and SMHS. Ten is the maximum that the Lions Scholarship Funds can manage. Each student can apply for college financial needs and a committee of Lions and school counselors determine how the funds are distributed.
