Congratulations to Elwood-John H. Glenn High School students – Colby Knorr, Andrew Morra, Sasha Jamal and Felipe Gonzalez – who were recently named November Students of the Month. 

Every month, students from the freshmen, sophomore, junior and senior classes nominate their classmates to be selected for the honor, which is based not solely on academic achievements but rather on character, integrity and personal accomplishments. 

Freshman Colby Knorr was described by his nominator as “very friendly” and “supportive” to all of his classmates.

“Colby always makes sure to include everyone [and] is consistently the first person to help others,” Freshmen Class President Cateyann Bernhard said. “He is one of the most positive role models I know.”

Sophomore Class President Ally Haddad shared similar remarks about her nominee: sophomore Andrew Morra. “Andrew is always eager to participate in school activities…and is an excellent athlete who never fails to help his friends,” she said. “He is always willing to give a helping hand or crack a smile.”

Junior Sasha Jamal also serves as an active member of the school community as a dedicated member of the school’s track team and music department. Her classmates wrote that “she is consistently a friendly face in the hallway and never shies away from including people she does not know.”

Similarly, the senior class described their nominee, Felipe Gonzalez, as a student with a “contagious smile.” Amidst his school work, Felipe is involved in the school’s music department as well as a number of after school activities. 

“He is always willing to help those around him,” his classmate wrote. “His overall presence and exuberance make this building even brighter.”
