Recent Cairo High School PBIS Students of the Week, Makhia Evers and Will Hurst

Get the "Scoop" below on recent Cairo High School PBIS Students of the Week, Makhia Evers and Will Hurst. Congratulations to these students for being marvelous Makers and demonstrating positive behavior and character!

Sixteen-year-old Makhia Evers is a sophomore at CHS who lives in Cairo with her mother, Lesha Evers.

She was nominated for Student of the Week by inclusion teacher Mr. Feliciano Gonzalez for helping him straighten up the classroom and helping other students with their work.

Makhia's favorite teacher is her math teacher, Mrs. Lynlee Barrett. She also told the Red & Black that match is her favorite subject. "I just like it, and its fun," she said.

Makhia is a member of the Syrupmaids basketball team as an extra-curricular activity. One of her favorite things to do in her free time is to hang out with her friends.

After graduating from CHS, Makhia plans to attend college and continue to play basketball.

Will Hurst is a 17-year-old senior here at CHS. He is the son of William and Lesley Hurst living in Country Club. Will was nominated for Student of the Week by Mrs. Morgan Henrique for being an outstanding student:

"Will is kind and always on task. His work is always on time, and he is a very helpful person and hard-working," Mrs. Henrique told the Red & Black.

Will's favorite teacher is math teacher Mrs. Kristin Blough. Why? Because "She's fun," he said.

Will is also involved in the CTAE program at Cairo High School, taking construction as an elective.

Outside of school, Will works at the Cairo Fitness Center enjoys hanging out with his friends in his spare time. He plans to attend ABAC after graduating from CHS.

 Every Friday during the school year, Cairo High School Principal Chris Lokey and Assistant Principal William Huff name a “Positive Behavior Intervention Support [PBIS] Student of the Week,” a CHS student recognized by faculty or administration for modeling positive behaviors to fellow students.

Each week's winner is chosen randomly from the “golden drum” located in the main office containing “MAKER Bucks,” rewards given to students who exemplify parts of the “MAKER Matrix”: M – Model Behavior, A – Accountable, K – Kind and Respectful, E – Excellent Attendance, R – Responsible.

PBIS Students of the Week are recognized during the school's morning announcements and given a certificate of acknowledgment and gift certificate to Mr. Chick.
