Students of the Month at Chautauqua Lake Central School, honored for January achievements, are Samantha Herrington, Maximillian McKee, Joshua Janicki, Alicia Cannon, Peyton D'Anthony and Kaitlyn Herrick. 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.

Senior Samantha Nicole Herrington is the daughter of Tammy and Charlie Herrington of Ashville. Nursing and health are her favorite classes this year. As a senior, Samantha is actively involved on the yearbook staff, and she recently performed in the school musical, Bye Bye Birdie. Outside of school, she enjoys snowmobiling, drawing and going for walks with her dog. She has earned recognition on the honor roll, and in Spring 2015 she was inducted as a member of the Career & Technical Honor Society. Samantha looks forward to attending college.

Maximillian McKee, son of Lisa Gierszal of Chautauqua, is a junior who says physics, Principles of Engineering, and pre-calculus are his favorite subjects. Since his freshman year, Max has competed on both the High School Bowl academic team and in the Science Olympiad. Since his sophomore year, he has participated in Spanish Club, peer mentoring and peer tutoring. This year he has been active in the Impact Fellowship. Since eighth grade, Max has also been responsible for coordinating the lighting for the school musicals. Outside of school, he is active in the Chautauqua Lake Rowing Association. He also plays piano and percussion, having participated since his freshman year in the Chautauqua County Music Teachers' Association's solo musical festival in Fredonia, and this year in the Chautauqua Regional Youth Symphony. Max admires Albert Einstein, because he was the "creator of quantum physics and discovered many phenomena, like gravitational waves." If Max could be another person for a day, he would be Sir Isaac Newton, to "be able to discover amazing things and experience culture before the laws of physics were established." He looks forward to study engineering at Rochester Institute of Technology.
