Eagles News · January Athletes of the Month–Kassie Gutierrez and Jaxon Etter

Kassie is a talented diver scoring 3rd place in State 7A Division and 1st place in our Region.  She is a very caring and kind classmate to her peers and is dedicated to working hard in her sport driving all the way to GA Tech for practice during the week.  Her hard work has paid off and she is so deserving of this recognition.  We are so proud of her!

While Jaxon’s nomination is a nice reflection on his ability as a basketball player, it doesn’t even begin to scratch the surface of his character and leadership.   Jaxon’s athletic accomplishments speak for themselves, but most people don’t see his leadership on and off the court.  Jaxon has always said he wanted to leverage his talents in basketball to make a greater impact on the community.  Over the past 3 years as a varsity player, Jaxon never hesitates to go to local elementary schools and talk about the work ethic and skills it takes to be a success.  He invests time attending and cheering for his peers in other sports and is also a scholar athlete.  We were a better basketball team last month because of Jaxon’s skills, but we will be a better school for years to come because of his example and character.
