The London Rotary Club is pleased to honor senior Chrysten Kell as Madison-Plains High School’s May Student of the Month.
Students of the month are selected by school administrators based on their academic and extracurricular achievement and positive character.
Kell has a 3.862 grade point average, and her favorite course is psychology. She is a four-year member of the Madison-Plains chapter of the FFA. She has served as chapter sentinel and is currently the chapter reporter. She is a four-year member of student council, and she was a class officer during her sophomore and junior years. Kell also is a member of the Madison-Plains chapter of the National Honor Society.
When asked to name a school staff member who inspires her, she replied, “Miss (Shelby) Balint because the Madison-Plains FFA chapter has shaped me into the person I am today, and Miss Balint is a huge part of that and has made being an officer for our chapter an amazing experience that I will never forget.”
About Kell, Balint stated, “I have had the pleasure to watch Chrysten grow from a quiet, reserved freshmen student into the confident, well-spoken woman she is today. Chrysten has been a tremendous asset to our FFA officer team and program. She always gives her best effort and is always willing to help in any way she can to benefit our FFA chapter. Chrysten is kind, friendly and caring of others and does not hesitate to help another student in need. I am so excited for her and her future endeavors because I know wherever her heart leads her, she will succeed. Congratulations and best wishes.”
After graduation, Kell plans to attend Ohio University-Chillicothe. She is the daughter of John and Mindi Kell.
