Clio High School sophomore named Student of the Month


Flint 67th District Judge Herman Marable Jr. and his Citizens Advisory Committee announced this week that Clio High School sophomore Mikayla Nelson has been selected as the Judge Marable Student of the Month. The 15-year-old sophomore was selected on the basis of her application and essay.

 “Mikayla is looking forward to a career as a lawyer and judge,” said a spokesperson for the Citizens Advisory Committee. “Her extracurricular activities at school include cross country, track and field, and bowling. Her interests include Girl Scouting, photography, and writing poetry and short stories.

 As a Judge Marable Student of the Month, Nelson will receive a $75 prize, trophy, and certificate, and has been invited to shadow Judge Marable for a day at the court while he performs his official duties. Her name has been engraved on a plaque on permanent display at the 67th District Courthouse. She also will be invited to visit Michigan State University to spend a day to experience college life.

 The Judge Marable Student of the Month/Year program was established in 2004 to encourage Genesee County high school students to focus on academic achievement and career goals. Each month during the school year (September-June) a 10th grade student will be recognized. At the end of the school year, one of the monthly awardees will be selected as Judge Marable’s Student of the Year and will receive a $500 cash prize.

 Tenth grade students who are city of Flint or Genesee County residents, or who attend public, charter, or private schools located in Genesee County are eligible to apply for the Judge Marable Student of the Month/Year Award.  More than 110 students have been honored since the inception of the program.
