Terrance Johnson, 8th grade
Argentine Middle School
Nominated by: Micah Louis, Teacher

“I have had the privilege of knowing Terrance for the three years he has attended Argentine.  He is going to be a big star one day!  Terrance leads by example in all he does. He is a constant learner and always strives to bring out the best in everyone around him.  He is a two year starter at Quarterback for our football team and has excelled at every other sport he has played, while still being responsible to maintain an A average. For all of his achievements, he is one of the most compassionate young men I have ever met, and genuinely longs for others around him to experience success.  Terrance would be an ideal candidate to consider for student of the month honors.”

Micah Louis, Teacher
