Each month, Central High teachers nominate an outstanding student who is doing positive things within the school. They are recognized on the school’s website, through social media, and in local newspapers.
This time, the October Student of the Month is Cole Penland. Cole is a 9th grader at CHS, the son of Mr. Donald and Mrs. Melissa Penland of Lunenburg. His teachers describe him as an outstanding student who works extremely hard and completes all his work to the best of his ability. Cole always volunteers to answer questions in class and adds to classroom discussions regularly. Cole is also a great friend to his peers, teachers say. They single out his work ethic, character, and determination as top-notch. His hobbies include walking in the park and listening to music.
In addition, Cole has played recreational soccer and hopes to try out this spring for the Central High School Soccer team. His favorite subject in school is History, and after graduating high school, Cole desires to attend law school to become a lawyer.
