CHS Students of the Month for January 2021

A committee of CHS teachers met to choose the Covington High School Students of the Month for January 2021.  The committee selects from a pool of students nominated by the faculty based on the traits of scholarship, leadership, service, citizenship, and character.  January’s Students of the Month are Kinley Glass, Rose Janke, Drake Perez, and Ty Creppel.

Kinley, who was chosen as CHS’s 2020-2021 Student of the Year, has distinguished herself as an outstanding student who pushes herself by taking the most difficult coursework that CHS has to offer.  Her 4.5 GPA is a testament to her success, as is her ACT score of 31, which includes a 35 on both the Reading and English sub tests.  On campus, Kinley is an active part of Student Council, serving her class as Vice President for 3 years.  In addition, she belongs to the National Honor Society, Key Club, and Interact club.  Kinley is also a musician who devotes time and talent to practicing the violin and piano and performs in recitals each year.  Out in the community, Kinley volunteers tutoring college algebra and participating in the Children’s Hospital Fashion Show.  After graduation, Kinley plans to attend college out of state and pursue a career as a neonatal nurse practitioner.

Rose also challenges herself with advanced coursework across the board, and maintains a 4.0+ GPA.  This year she took 2 dual-enrollment classes.  Around CHS, Rose is an athlete who competed on the Varsity Softball team for two years and the Varsity basketball team all 4 years.  She is also involved with the Sports Medicine team and has served as the team captain for two years.  Rose belongs to the National Honor Society and The Fellowship of Christian Athletes.  In the greater Covington community, Rose is very involved in her church and has volunteered her time helping hurricane victims in Lake Charles.  She also volunteers at Fairhaven Children’s Home which is run by her grandparents. In the future, Rose plans to attend college and major in forensic accounting with an eye towards working at the FBI someday.

Drake’s achievements in high school academics are amazing, as well.  He has maintained a perfect A average in a demanding curriculum including AP, DE, Honors, and Gifted classes.  He scored a 33 on the ACT-- as well as a 4 and 5 on the AP US History and English Exams, respectively.  He was selected to represent CHS at Boys’ State and Literary Rally.  As a CHS Marching Lion, Drake has excelled, being named to Parish and District Honor Band multiple times.  He plays trumpet in Marching, Concert and Jazz bands, and was chosen as Section Leader last year.  This year, he was elected as Drum Major. He also plays Varsity Tennis and belongs to National Honor Society, Tri-M Music Honor Society, and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. Around town, Drake can be found helping out by performing at Veterans Day Programs, Swearing in Ceremonies, and STPSB meetings.

Ty’s academic performance in high school is equally impressive, as he has never made a B or lower… despite taking a full load of Honors, AP and DE coursework.  On campus, Ty belongs to National Honor Society and also played soccer in the beginning of his high school career. He values time spent with family and friends, and has always worked part time, most recently at St. Anthony’s Garden Senior Living Center, which has been a rewarding challenge during the pandemic.  Out in the community, Ty volunteers at his church helping with media presentations.  After high school, Ty plans to pursue a pre-med major in college, with an eye towards going to medical school and becoming a plastic surgeon.

Congratulations to these 4 outstanding seniors!  We salute your dedication and appreciate all you have done for CHS!
