UNITED: Two seniors earn recognition for their achievements
ARMAGH — Recently, two seniors were chosen to receive the honor of seniors of the month.
These seniors were Bailee Gehring and Halee Reasor. Gehring and Reasor are both known to have positive attitudes in school and do well in their classes.
Gehring is known for her academic abilities and being involved with the National Honor Society, where she holds the office of vice president.
After high school she hopes to attend the University of Pittsburgh.
While there, her intended major will be English education. Gehring’s minor will be in Japanese to go along with her dream to move abroad and teach English in Japan.
When asked why she wanted to go into the teaching field, especially teaching English as a second language in Japan, Gehring said, “Since I was little I was always fascinated with Japanese culture. When I got older I further explored the culture through music and I became seriously interested in it.”
When she was asked what it felt like being named senior of the month, Gehring said, “It is an honor and a privilege to be associated with such great students.”
Darla Kiefer, Spanish teacher, said, “Bailee definitely deserves the award. She has elected and pursued advanced level coursework, seems interested in learning language and speaks great Spanish.”
The other senior of the month, Reasor, is known for her abilities in graphic design and her positive attitude.
In the past she has been involved with Future Business Leaders of America and currently goes to Indiana County Technology Center for graphic design.
After high school, Reasor plans to attend Westmoreland County Community College to continue her pursuits in graphic design.
While there, she hopes to earn a degree in graphic communication.
When asked who inspired her the most to be the student she is now, she stated, “While not a person, the Outdoor Odyssey program has made me the student I am today.”
When asked what she thought about being named a senior of the month, Reasor simply said, “I think it is awesome!”
Kathy Jones, teacher, said, “I’m really proud of her. She is a great girl, works hard and gives everything 100 percent. She’s great with graphics and several times has worked on different things for both me and other members of the staff.”
Congratulations go out to both of these outstanding seniors.
