Students to be Recognized

Paris High School has lots of students who go above and beyond the norm of student expectations to help make the school a better place for learning.  Each month, we will recognize such students with the designation as Student of the Month.  To get the honor rolling, PHS Principal Chris Vaughn has named freshman Trae Dudley as September's winner.  Future monthly winners will be chosen by a committee from faculty nominations.  Winners receive a $25 WalMart gift card, and their picture will be displayed on the school website and in a trophy case desginated as the Current Student Wall of Honor.  At the end of the school year, there will be a drawing among all monthly winners for a $100 Applebees gift card.
