Audra Breer and Tyler Broom were selected as the November Students of the Month at Teutopolis High School.
Each month, two upperclassmen are chosen by a committee of teachers. They are selected based on the dedication and hard work they show both in and out of the classroom.
Audra is a member of Drama Club, Volunteens, In-Touch, Math Club, Math Team, WYSE, Scholar Bowl, The Vision, Writing Club and Varsity Club. She is National Honor Society President, band Vice President and a Student Council Representative. She has played tennis and ran track all four years of high school, and she participates in USTA tennis during the summer.
She has received the Presidential Volunteer Service Award in both 2014 and 2015. She was a 2016 ILMEA All-State musician and the October 2013 Rookie of the Month. Her hobbies include writing, listening to music, watching theatre productions, and, above all, spending time with her friends.
Audra hopes to attend Princeton University and receive a degree in Psychology, English or Theology. She envisions herself working with teens in a school or church setting. At some point, she hopes to travel abroad doing missionary work.
Her family provides Audra with a lot of motivation. Other people around her do as well. Seeing people struggling through life experiences makes Audra hope to one day be in a position where she can help others succeed. The prospect of helping others achieve their maximum potential drives Audra to work hard.
Tyler has been a member of the band for four years, Spanish Club for two years and National Honor Society for three years. He has been on the honor roll or high honor roll each semester of his high school years.
While he was an underclassman, Tyler received the Rookie of the Month Award. Students are honored with this award when they actively promote a positive school climate, help others, are highly motivated and actively participate in school activities and functions.
Tyler has also been an active participant in sports. He has played soccer all four years of high school and has played tennis for two. Tyler enjoys hunting, fishing and hanging out with his friends for his past-time activities.
In the future, he plans to attend college at Illinois State University or Southern Illinois University in Edwardsville and later be accepted into a physical therapy program. He’s motivated to succeed by his drive to make his family proud of him.
