Marlboro honors students of the month


Each month the Marlboro School Board continues a tradition of honoring students for their outstanding achievements.

High School
Lyleea Lunsford was named the High School Student of the Month for September. Principal Ryan Lawler said Lunsford has shown tremendous growth as a student and person during her time in high school.
“She has a warm and caring personality and is a role model in the classroom, on our fields and in our hallways.” he said.

English teacher Steven Fowler said, “Lyleea is someone who has demonstrated grit, resilience and honesty in my class. She takes responsibility for her own actions and she is always looking out for others.”

Art teacher Amy Tremblay had Lyleea for two classes last year.

“She was someone who was always reliable and helped out students who needed a little more help and encouragement to get projects done,” Tremblay said.

Lyleea is also an athlete in the school’s soccer and basketball programs. Coach Jacoba Smith said, “Lyleea is a team leader and assists younger and less experienced players with skills. She gracefully accepts compliments and is humble.”

Coach Smith urged Lyleea to keep helping those around her.

“You have found the formula for a lifetime of success,” she concluded.

Middle School
Principal Debra Clinton named Ciara McManus as the Middle School’s Student of the Month for June, as she was unable to attend that month’s meeting.
Assistant Principal Damian Stanmyer said, “Her teachers and fellow students and friends all look to her as a source of inspiration. Her tenacity for everything that comes her way makes her a role model for all those in her midst. Mature beyond her years Ciara is unaffected by many of the things that seem to preoccupy some of her peers [and] always instead taking the high road and moving ahead toward her goals.”

Math teacher Michael Sosnick said Ciara had really grown throughout last year.

“I saw it mostly in her confidence as a math student. She learned with an ease about her as if she figured out that she can learn at a high level without necessarily stressing herself out,” he said.

Social Studies teacher Geoffrey Pesano said Ciara, “showed great insight, she was a hard worker and a model student.”

ELA teacher Alicia Hudak said she could always count on Ciara, “to provide the class with clever insights into not only the text that they read, but also insights about life in general.”

Isabella Magyar was named the Middle School student of the Month for September. Band Director Andrew Mayce highlighted Magyar’s accomplishments as a 7th grader, who is an active member of both the band and chorus.

“Isabella is a positive student in our classes and is always a joyful participant and a great role model to all her classmates,” Mayce said. “Last year she thrived in the music classroom and always completed all of the assignments excellently. She was a student we could trust and rely on to help others.”

Dr. Stephanie Corbett had Isabella in chorus this year, “and in band she is a leader in the clarinet section and is always focused and ready to learn.”

Mayce noted that Isabella also participates in the jazz band and has auditioned and been inducted into the inaugural class of the Tri-M Music Honor Society.
“Isabella is a hard working, dedicated student who always gives 100% of her energy to the task before her and is an outstanding member of our Marlboro Middle School community,” Mayce concluded.

Elementary School
Principal Jena Thomas introduced her 4th grade team of Science and Social Studies teacher Mary Guerriero, Math teacher Maria Bruno and ELA teacher Jemma Greiner, who recognized Juan Hernandez Agustin as their September Student of the Month.

Greiner pointed out that, “Juan quickly stood out as a student who was enthusiastic about learning. He’s working on growing his brain using his growth mindset and shares a great deal of positivity in the classroom and with his peers. He’s kind and helpful and a pleasure to have in class each day.” She directed her last comment to Juan; “You’ve started out on the right foot, you’ve got the attention of your teachers and peers, now keep climbing and reaching for the stars. You have the potential to learn challenging things and let’s have a great year. Congratulations.”

Board President Michael Connors said the comments by the teachers and administrators are, “some powerful descriptions for some really great students. Best of luck to you all and best wishes for continued success.”
