First S.T.A.R. awards presented

By Cyndi Sellers

The very first S.T.A.R. (Student/Staff Thank-you and Reward) program award winners were announced Monday at the Cameron Parish School Board meeting. Program director Clair Marceaux read the nomination letters for each winner, which showed how they had gone “above and beyond and kindness and generosity at their schools.

Recipients for August are: Yoheni Rodriguez, Grand Lake, Elementary Division; Lance Smith, Grand Lake, Middle School Division; Kelan Pugh, South Cameron, High School Division; and Dr. Michael Shamlin, Hackberry, Faculty/Staff Division.
This month’s rewards were: a gift of $100, a specially designed tote bag, a $40 movie pass gift card, recipient’s choice of an air boat ride or a round of golf with Sheriff Ron Johnson, and for staff, a one night stay at Springhill Suites in Lake Charles.
Nominations, with names and personal information deleted, were considered by a committee of school board and community representatives. Marceaux said she was brought to tears by the unselfish acts of the nominees and hopes the program will grow the number of students who want to become positive influences in the parish.

The S.T.A.R. program was conceived by School Supt. Charley Lemons and made a reality by Marceaux, who is also the Cameron Parish Port Director. She has worked tirelessly to solicit sponsorships to provide meaningful rewards for the award recipients.

Sponsorships may be cash or services, Marceaux says, and more sponsors are needed. She thanked current sponsors the Cameron Parish School Board, Commonwealth LNG, Sheriff Ron Johnson, District Attorney Jennifer Jones, Southern Screen Printing, Bubba’s Bulk Distributing, G2 LNG, Cameron Loins Club, Springhill Suites, Gulf Coast Industrial Group, and Providence Engineering.
