Westfield Republican / Mayville Sentinel News

Students of the Month at Chautauqua Lake Central School, honored for May achievements, are Callie Girdlestone, Laiken Biekert, Brianna Dudley, Nathan Hammond, Sebastian Hardenburg, and Teddi Hayes. The student recognition program honors students in grades 7 through 12 whose classroom performance, attitude toward learning, work ethic and extra-curricular activities set them apart.

Graduating senior Callie Morgan Girdlestone is the daughter of K'Lynn McDonnell and Jerry Nichols of Dewittville. Health is Callie's favorite subject. She enjoys reading, band, and music. She also plays mellophone in the Chadwick Bay Buccaneers Drum and Bugle Corps of Dunkirk. She will attend Jamestown Community College to pursue a nursing degree. When asked what person in history she admires, Callie mentioned "women's rights people, because I wouldn't have the education I have today" if it were not for their efforts. If she could be another person for one day, Callie would choose her mother, "so I can see what she goes through every day and be more thankful of her."

Laiken Renee Biekert, daughter of Traci Raynor of Dewittville, is a rising senior who says math is her favorite class. Laiken participates in National Honor Society, Student Administration, Sources of Strength and the school mentoring program, and she is a Peer Educator. Outside of school she works at the St. Elmo in Chautauqua Institution. After high school, she would like to study nursing at Jamestown Community College. Laiken also admires leaders of the women's rights movement, because "without them I wouldn't have the great opportunities (education and employment) that I have today." If she could be another person for a day, Laiken would choose her son, because "he has no worries, no stresses and gets taken care of. It would be nice to get to just play all day."
