The Floresville High School April Female Student of the Month is Shelby Gordon. Shelby is the 17-year-old daughter of Joyce and Keith Gordon.

Shelby has been active in numerous FHS organizations. This is her second year as a Link Crew leader, serving as a mentor to incoming freshmen to help them make a smooth transition into high school. In 2009, she was named the Theater Arts I Outstanding Student of the Year. She also previously held the position of secretary for the Drama Club. As a member of the Mighty Tiger Band, she has been a leader among her peers, holding the position of Colorguard Lieutenant for the past two years.

When not busy with academic and extracurricular activities, Shelby is also very active in her community. This year, Shelby was a duchess in the Peanut Festival Parade, representing Peanut Festival Board Member Linnci Angle. Shelby also participated in this year’s Shattered Dreams Program, which is aimed at raising awareness among teens about the dangers of drinking and driving. Shelby has also given the gift of life by being a blood donor.

Despite her demanding schedule, Shelby still finds time for employment. She is currently employed at the FHS office through the Work-Based Learning Co-op Program.

Upon graduation in June, Shelby plans to pursue a degree in either criminology or psychology. She plans to attend Palo Alto and then transfer to either Texas State University or Sam Houston State University.

The April Male Student of the Month is Brian Harvey. Brian is the 18-year-old son of Sarah and Joseph Harvey.

Brian is a member in good standing with the National Honor Society. As a Link Crew leader, Brian serves as a mentor to incoming freshmen to help them make a smooth transition into high school. Brian has also been an active volunteer in FHS Project Graduation and was a duke in the Peanut Festival Parade, representing Peanut Festival Secretary Carmen Leal.

Brian is also very active in his church. Brian and members of his church spent spring break completing service projects around Floresville and the Cimarron subdivision. Brian and members of his church also held a block party with free food and door prizes to benefit the Eagle Creek community.

Brian has been employed at Murray Guaranty Title since August through the high school’s Work-Based Learning Co-op Program.

Upon graduation in June, Brian plans to attend Palo Alto and then transfer to Houston Baptist University, where he will pursue a medical degree.
