About Us & Activities

Student of the Month

Alison Richard from Union Pines High School

English Speaking Union Student of the Month Program 

The ESU Student of the Month program is designed to honor two people.  First, the student with high academic achievement, with qualities of fine leadership and integrity as well as good citizenship.  Typically she/he demonstrates exemplary character through compassion towards others, optimism, along with trustworthiness and responsibility in creating a positive environment in and outside their classroom.

Secondly, ESU also delights in honoring the student's pick for the teacher who most influenced and supported them.  This provides the  student with a chance to honor their teacher and talk about the traits and actions of their teacher that have made all the difference in their road to excellence.

This brief element in our meetings shines a light on the upcoming generation of dedicated students and also on the professionals who are actively building great thinkers and learners.
