High School
 
Ag Science-  Ayelleah Brown-  “Ayelleah has hit the ground running in Shelby. She started the year off with a bang by applying to be an FFA officer. She was selected to serve as our chapter's Secretary. She also has volunteered to help with concessions numerous times and has participated in many FFA events. Ayelleah shows that she is courageous because she moved here from another school and has shown that she wants to be a Coyote. I'm excited to see what the future holds for Ayelleah.”  Mr. T. White

English- Brook Luly-  “Mr. Tokerud and I nominate Brook Luly for being the most courageous student.  I have seen Brook acknowledge fears and challenges, and not back down from difficult situations but rather confront the problem with tenacity.
