News 25 caught up with Jordan Taylor, a student who earned this honor and he happens to be a new student at PCES. “I got Student of the Month for being courageous and brave. The reason my teacher chose me as Student of the Month is because I was rolling with the flow on tests and all my grades, and I’ve just been keeping with that throughout the school year.”

Jordan says he wants to be a police officer when he grows up.
