Mariner High School has named its Students of the Month for January.

Mariner freshman Owen Williams Collins was nominated by his English teacher Ann Freemon.

"Owen has been a real superstar when it comes to distance learning. He has been to class every single day with his camera on," Freemon said. "Many times he is the only one. He not only contributes to the class by the way of discussion, but he also has supported all peers and myself by creating a suggested reading list, some fun recipes for us to try to make at home, and a varied list of local restaurants for us to try out. He has modeled positivity in an exceedingly tough time. ... He has helped us all to cope."

Sophomore Javon Alexander McAndrew was nominated biology teacher Ethan Smith.

"Javon has been a stellar student in Biology class all semester," Smith said. "He is a consistent Zoom participant and has regularly given his best effort despite the challenges of distance learning. Javon has shown a willingness to go the extra mile to boost his grade and meet his goals. I appreciate his attention to detail and spirit of perseverance."

Junior Bryan Ortiz-Lopez was nominated by English teacher Richard Mar.

"He has been to almost every single Zoom class and has turned in all assignments," Mar said. "His recent essay demonstrated the effort and growth that has been evident all year long.

Senior Kidist Abebe Tesfaye was nominated by history teacher Josh Byeman.

"Kidist has only been in the U.S. for a few years but you would never know that in regard to how well she speaks English and her mastery of academics (in English)," Byeman said. "I am truly impressed with her tenacity and rapid growth. I had her last year as a junior in ELL U.S. History and she was an excellent and resourceful student that would work with those at her table and was always focused. I pushed her to take AP European History with me her senior year and she rose to the challenge. Although she struggled in quarter 1, she stuck with it and make fantastic progress and will end the semester with an A."
