Helen M. Knight Elementary’s mayor-picked Student of the Month for March is sixth-grade student Legacy Blake.

Legacy is in Ms. Nichols class.

Nichols said Legacy was nominated for student of the month because she is a great role model for students and even adults.

She is the daughter of Lucas and Shadie Blake.

“Amazing grit and determination are characteristics that come to mind when thinking of Legacy Blake,” Nichols said.

Nichols said Legacy puts a lot of time and effort into her assignments because she always wants to do her best.

“She doesn’t let the difficulty of an assignment stop her,” Nichols said. “She perseveres by remaining focused on whatever assignment she is tackling.”

In addition, teachers said Legacy goes above and beyond what is required and she is always willing to help others.
