January has begun with a successful start as Miranda Febus earns the title of January’s Student of the Month. Ranked sixth in her class, she has worked diligently and consistently to achieve this honor and has successfully impressed the Student of the Month Committee with an overall grade point average of 98.9.

In addition to excelling in her classes such as AP English and AP Government and Politics, Miranda enjoys learning about interesting topics in her favorite classes, Journalism and Film and Literature.

Beyond her challenging schedule, Miranda also focuses on extra-curricular activities. She is the co-editor for the Cat’s Eye View newspaper, co-captain for the debate team, secretary of the National Honor Society and vice president of the Spanish Honor Society. She is also a member of Key Club, Environmental Club, Yearbook Committee, Girls Helping Girls, Student Council and the Images staff.

“Don’t overwhelm yourself, but also realize that you only regret the things you don’t do,” Miranda advises pupils who aspire to be future Students of the Month.

Throughout her time here at Becton, she has learned how to be responsible. “It’s important to be the best you that you can be,” she states. In the future, Miranda plans to attend Pace University, Fordham University or Syracuse University in the hopes of studying communications and journalism as well as English.

The Student of the Month mentions that her transition from high school to college will be bittersweet, stating, “I’m really excited to move on from high school, but I might miss some of the familiar faces.”

Aside from her academic career, she enjoys reading and planting vegetables in her spare time. She notes that her favorite quote has been F. Scott Fitzgerald’s “So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past,” since she read The Great Gatsby sophomore year with English Teacher Mrs. Scalera.
