Floresville High School’s November female student of the month is Kaitlin Labus, the 17-year-old daughter of Rose and Gordon Labus.

Kaitlin has been named to the “A” Honor Roll and was named the Outstanding Student of the Year for Pre-AP Geometry. She is a member in good standing with the National Honor Society and is currently the organization’s reporter. Kaitlin has also been recognized for perfect attendance.

Kaitlin’s extracurricular activities include being a member of the Mighty Tiger Band, where she has served as both a section leader and lieutenant for the woodwind section. Kaitlin made the All-Region Band for three years. As a member of Link Crew, Kaitlin has served as a mentor to incoming freshmen, assisting them in making a smooth transition into high school. Kaitlin also has earned honors as a member of the varsity golf team. She received Academic All-District recognition the past three years. Last year, she had an individual finish of seventh place at the East Central Invitational and a first-place team finish at the Devine Arabian Golf Invitational. Kaitlin finished district competition with honorable mention last year.

When not busy with academic and extracurricular activities, Kaitlin volunteers in her community. She has volunteered as a bell ringer for the Salvation Army and has visited nursing homes to sing Christmas carols. Kaitlin has also participated in Relay For Life fund-raisers. As a member of the Royal Court for the 69th annual Peanut Festival, Kaitlin serves as an ambassador for the city of Floresville at festivals across South Texas.

Upon graduation in June, Kaitlin plans to attend Texas A&M University, where she will major in either education or business.

The November male student of the month is Colin Hayden, the 17-year-old son of Amy Hayden and Brett Hayden.

Colin is a member in good standing of the National Kitty Hawk Society for Academic Excellence and the National Honor Society. As a sophomore he received the AFJROTC Academic Award, was chosen as the AFJROTC Cadet of the Month in March 2012, and received the Tuskegee Airman Award in 2011-12. Colin has been a member of the Floresville ISD’s School Health Advisory Committee for the past four years. Colin has participated in UIL Current Events and the Chess Club. As a sophomore, he served as class treasurer. He has also been a member of Link Crew.

Colin has been a member of the Armed Drill Team and Rocketry team, the color guard, and the Sabertooth Honor Guard teams. As a member of the Color Guard, he assisted with posting colors at more than 40 community and civic events. Colin has completed more than 140 hours of community service, including Adopt-A-Highway events, nursing home visits, toy and food drives, and peer tutoring. Last year, Colin was in charge of the ROTC’s Adopt-A-Highway campaign. In the spring of 2013, Colin served as Bravo Flight Commander and was awarded Commander of the Semester. He is currently the Deputy Corps Commander for his unit and will be Corps Commander in the spring.

In the summer of 2012, Colin attended the Lone Star Summer Leadership Academy at Schreiner College. This past summer, he attended the American Legion Boys State Summer Leadership program in Austin. He recently received Community Emergency Response Training.

In December, Colin will graduate from Palo Alto College’s state-approved Certified Nurses Aide Training Course and will receive his CNA certification. Upon graduation from FHS, Colin plans to attend St. Philip’s College to pursue a degree in radiology, MRI, ultrasound, and CT technology.
