This months Student Standout recipient is Colby Bond from Renaissance High School! When we asked the Renaissance High School Administration and Staff who they recommended as the next Student Standout recipient, Colby Bond was mentioned again and again. Colby is an active participant in the IB Diploma Program, speech and debate, and mentoring his peers. Colby contributes to the community through activities such as Irish dance, summer jobs, and was featured in an anti-substance abuse PSA with the Meridian Anti-Drug Coalition. Beyond his academic achievements, principled work ethic, and maintaining excellent grades, Colby is recognized for his inclusive, caring, and respectful treatment of others. As well as, advocating for those who may be uncomfortable or unable to speak up for themselves. For these reasons and more, Colby Bond is the next Meridian Police Department Student Standout Award winner for November 2023. Congrats Colby!

Mrs. Drexler has been honored by the Idaho Speech Arts Teacher Association (ISATA) with the award for Speech Arts Teacher of the Year! Speech Arts Teacher of the Year is an award to recognize outstanding contributions and excellence in the field of speech arts education, specifically Speech and Debate, and it is a testament to Kyra’s unwavering commitment to providing students with an exceptional learning experience. Kyra was voted as the Speech Arts Teacher of the Year by her peers and speaks to the excellent reputation that she has within our community. An excerpt from one of Kyra’s nominations reads: Kyra has run a first-rate and very successful program at Renaissance since she became a coach. She has served the NSDA well in her role on the Gem of the Mountain committee as member and chair, helped lead the assembly each semester of the D3 legislation packet (huge undertaking), and has served as manager at several state tournaments. All in all, she is a great role model of an involved and caring coach.
