Baldwin EMC is excited to announce the latest recipients of the Shining Star Student award. These students were nominated for displaying the Touchstone Energy characteristics of integrity, innovation, accountability and commitment to community.
Zoeylynn Barnwell, an eighth grade student at Elberta Middle School, was named Baldwin EMC’s Shining Star Student of the Month for October. She was nominated by her teacher Alyssa Corbitt.
In her nomination, Corbitt described Barnwell as a true shining star with a humble nature. “It is no secret that Zoeylynn is the epitome of kindness and although her modest demeanor doesn’t seek accolades, she absolutely deserves recognition. She is first to volunteer her assistance in welcoming new students to our school and in executing school-wide campaigns. Many of Zoeylynn’s peers even comment on how she is a leader with a true servant’s heart.”
Gabby Meehan, a seventh grade student at Orange Beach Middle School, was named Baldwin EMC’s Shining Star Student of the Month for November. She was nominated by her teacher Leah Tucker.
Tucker wrote in her nomination that Gabby is a conscientious student who goes out of her way to help others. “Gabby takes the initiative to be a good citizen and takes care of our campus. If she notices a peer in need, she takes the time to help. Gabby is bilingual and has volunteered time from her own lunch to help a classmate who only speaks Portuguese progress through math lessons. Gabby always greets adults and students with a friendly smile or words of encouragement.”
The awards were presented by WALA FOX 10 TV’s meteorologist Michael White and Baldwin EMC representative Kim Frank.
