On the morning of April 18, 12 students were acknowledged as Mustang of the Month nominees while surrounded by family, teachers, and faculty members.

Students with specific characteristics were nominated by their teachers and recognized during a breakfast ceremony in the cafeteria.

"What we are looking for is... Ola-tude. We look for the characteristics of what makes a great student; they're leaders among their peers, they're motivated, passionate about learning and they want to get better and know more," Nick Ellis, assistant principal, said.

Ellis read the praises the nominating teachers wrote about their student. Then, he announced the two winners of the month. He said that even if they don't win, just being nominated is an accomplishment itself.

"I think any job that you would go to, any career whether it be entry level job or down the road, they are going to want committed, motivated, and passionate workers that go above and beyond. If you exemplify want Ola-tude is, you are ahead of the curve," Ellis said.

Olivia Bell, senior, and Alondra Ocasio, sophomore, won Mustang of the Month. This is the last ceremony of the year and recognition for next year will begin once school starts back after the summer.
