This week’s “Classroom Champion” award goes to DCHS student Mya Ruch.
The award was presented by Smithville Attorney Jim Judkins and WJLE .
Mya is the 14 year old daughter of Joe and Melissa Ruch of Smithville.
As a freshman, she is involved in many clubs and sports, and has also achieved a 4.5 weighted GPA for her first semester. While on the Cross Country team, she was a member of the all Mid-State team and was the first DCHS runner to go to a TSSAA state meet. Here she came in 15th place in the Division I, A-AA meet, and was recognized as being on the All State team. She is also a member of the DCHS Basketball team. Mya is a member of the Smithville Church of Christ and enjoys being very involved in their youth group.
In an effort to recognize achievements of students in the DeKalb County School System, WJLE has partnered with attorney Judkins in featuring a “Classroom Champion” each week for the next several months.
The name of the student selected each week will be announced on WJLE and will be featured on the WJLE website. Each student winning will receive a plaque and a gift certificate.
“This is our way of recognizing and celebrating the achievements of the future citizens and leaders of the community. It can benefit their learning and overall school atmosphere and climate. The students' selection is based on academic performance, responsibility and work ethic, leadership abilities, and citizenship and character,” said Judkins.
