Adriana Jimenez-Guzman is February’s Student of the Month.

Robert Vellani, an ELA (English/Language Arts) teacher at Cummings High School, described her as “typifying the very best of our current senior class.”

“She is a remarkable student with a 4.27 grade point average and A Honor Roll status. She is president of our chapter of the National Honor Society, Vice President of Lady Pearls, (a community service-learning group) and a newly registered Certified Nursing Assistant. This semester, Adriana is enrolled in three core classes at Alamance Community College, Main Campus: Statistics, Biology and English,” he said. “As a student leader and scholar, Jeffery Lawson, National Honor Society faculty advisor, describes Adriana in one word: ‘top-notch.’”

She will attend the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in the fall, where she will major in Kinesiology.

Adriana also tutors and is active in her church, Palabra de Dios in Burlington.

The Bible verse, Proverbs 16:3 “commit your plans to the Lord and you will succeed” has predominantly inspired Adriana.

In addition to schoolwork and serving the community, she enjoys swimming, knitting, reading, going on an occasional walk and assisting her mother cook are some of her favorite pastimes.

Adriana’s plans for this summer include packing for college, obtaining a parttime job, and traveling.

She is the daughter of Celso Jimenez and Alva Guzman and she has two brothers, Marco A. Jimenez and Samuel Jimenez, and a sister, Ashley Jimenez. The family lives in Burlington.
