BGHS Students of the Month
An outstanding student has been selected from each academic division at Buffalo Grove High School to be honored as the February 2013 Student of the Month.
Student Services has named sophomore Caleb Jones of Buffalo Grove as its Student of the Month.
Jeff Siegal, instructional assistant and head cheerleading coach, said: “Caleb is a responsible, honest, giving, involved, and helpful student-athlete and leader. He has learned to balance school and athletics, is very diligent in his studies, and a definite asset in classroom discussions. Caleb is highly motivated and the kind of student who genuinely wants to do well, and is willing to listen to criticism and learn from it. Pleasant and courteous to others, Caleb is highly respected by his peers and staff. As a member of the BGHS state champion cheerleading squad, he learned how to work not only with guys, but also with girls. He was one of the quiet leaders on the floor and would never let his team down.”
