November Student of the Month – John Marshall
Komo Yang was selected as the November Kiwanis Student of the Month at John Marshall High School.
He was nominated by Teresa Felmlee of the science department who first met him virtually during distance learning and now has him in her AP chemistry class, according to John Marshall. He was nominated in part because of his self-motivation to prepare for college.
According to his nomination, he is a “terrific student in that he asks questions to be sure he understands the material, and he works well with his peers. He is a joy to have in the classroom; a great sense of humor.”
