This week’s “Classroom Champion” award goes to DeKalb West School student Alley Beth Cook.
The award was presented recently by Smithville Attorney Jim Judkins.
Cook is the daughter of Troy and Julie Cook.
A seventh grader this past year, Alley Beth is active in her youth group at Salem Baptist Church and is a member of the school’s FCA (Fellowship of Christian Athletes). Her favorite subject is Math. Her plans are to pursue a career in Teaching. This school year will mark her fourth year as a player on the Lady Bulldogs team and a member of the Junior Beta Club.
In an effort to recognize achievements of students in the DeKalb County School System, WJLE has partnered with attorney Judkins in featuring a “Classroom Champion” each week.
The name of the student selected each week will be announced on WJLE and will be featured on the WJLE website. Each student winning will receive a plaque and a gift certificate.
“This is our way of recognizing and celebrating the achievements of the future citizens and leaders of the community. It can benefit their learning and overall school atmosphere and climate. The students' selection is based on academic performance, responsibility and work ethic, leadership abilities, and citizenship and character,” said Judkins.
