English teacher Kyle Dodson chose Deborah Ingerson for Student of the Month based on the support she gives to her peers and the confidence she displays in her work. “Deborah Ingerson is a team player through and through,” Dodson said. “She is always there to support her peers to assist them in becoming the best possible version of themselves. I have always admired her positivity even in the face of struggles. She doesn't let the difficulties of life get to her. Deborah is a walking example of feeling confident enough to lay our baggage at the feet of God, knowing that he can help carry our woes. She is inquisitive, respectful, and motivated. I appreciate all that she stands for.”
