January Star Students of the Month are Rebecca Fisher (seated far right) and Ben Darden (not pictured).
“I nominated Rebecca Fisher because she is an outstanding young lady who consistently goes above and beyond in every endeavor she pursues,” said Thomas Bailey, FHS criminal justice teacher. “She is a key leader in Farragut High School’s Mock Trial team, and provides solid guidance and assistance to teammates preparing for this year’s district competition. She is also a key student leader throughout the high school and is respected by her peers, teachers and administrators.”
FHS Social Studies teacher Ben Collins explained why he nominated Darden. “I nominated Ben Darden because he is one of the most respectful, hard-working and genuinely kind young men I have come in contact with. He pushes himself academically by taking numerous Honors and AP-level courses and always puts in the work necessary to be successful in those classes. He is a strong student leader on the Farragut High School track team and the Farragut cross country team. He is an exceptional young man with a very bright future ahead.”
