Highland High School Principal Chad Carpenter introduced Highland’s Chamber Student of the Month Kayla McLeod.

“Kayla goes above and beyond to make a difference,” said Carpenter. “She seems to have endless energy to juggle all of her responsibilities.”

Her list of activities began with tutoring first grade students, Sunday School preschool teacher and church choir, president and member of Student Council, band, president of Business Professionals (BPA) and going to National BPA this year in May, National Honor Society (NHS,) member of Spanish Club and theater, and she works at the Mount Gilead Public Library.

McLeod is still undecided about which college to attend. She is considering the University of Cincinnati and Tiffin University. She plans a career in homeland security. McLeod’s parents are Julie and Galen McLeod.

Each Chamber Student of the Month receives a $50 gift card with their certificate.
