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.”

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
