FALLBROOK – The Student of the Month Committee has announced the May 2020 Students of the Month from Fallbrook Union High School District, including Mikhail Beath, Nicole Dulin, Maya Rink and Delana Sehnert.

Nominated throughout the school year by educators, the business community and charitable organizations, senior students for this honor are selected by criteria that include excellence in academics, school service and activities, community service, leadership and citizenship.

Mikhail Beath, with a 4.25 GPA, has been active on Fallbrook High School's varsity Academic Team and on Fallbrook's rugby team. Before his senior year, Beath served as an AFS exchange student in Russia. A Boy Scout, he has volunteered at the Navy Marine Corps Relief Society on U.S. Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton and at the snack bar for girls' rugby. Nominated by Fallbrook High science teacher Marin Pinnell, Beath also worked part-time during the school year.

Nicole Dulin, nominated by Pinnell, has earned over a 4.0 GPA with her Advanced Placement classes. Dulin has been an exceptional first team All-League tennis player throughout her high school years and has balanced her academic and athletic responsibilities as president of California Scholarship Federation and involvement with the school clubs of CREW, Fallbrook Christian Athletes and Pretty in Pink. She has volunteered extensively in the community as a National Charity League member and in her church, and she has also worked part-time.

Maya Rink, a student-athlete, has earned a 4.2 GPA and been a member of Fallbrook High School's track, cross-country and soccer teams. Involved with her church activities, Rink has also enjoyed her volunteer work with Fallbrook A Leer, Fallbrook Stem Academy, Angel Shop, Fallbrook Food Pantry and Girl Scouts.

Pinnell, who nominated her for this honor, said, "Maya is very unassuming, a top student and a key character in our community who gives back to her community. She is an excellent example of the greatness we have at Fallbrook High."

Delana Sehnert, who was nominated by her former agriculture teacher Megan Alvarez, has worked diligently as a National FFA Organization chapter leader. She also has earned grand champion awards with her animals, including her steer in 2019, at the San Diego County Fair. She has been a strong player for Fallbrook's field hockey team and has volunteered for many hours with the National Charity League and served at her church as a youth leader and assisting the children's center.

Due to the impact of COVID-19, the business community could not celebrate these students at this year's May monthly breakfast. In place of the breakfast, members of the Student of the Month Committee have visited each recipient's home, wearing masks and social distancing, and presented the students with a balloon bouquet, a commemorative T-shirt and the customary backpack of gifts from local businesses and organizations.

The Student of the Month Committee acknowledged the many local businesses and nonprofit organizations for their continued sponsorship throughout the school year. They also appreciated the Rev. Greg Coppock, administrative pastor of SonRise Church, the master of ceremonies of each month's breakfast program, for his avid participation over many years.

Student of the Month committee members included chair Lynne Grantham, Connie Fellios, Crystal Gates, Terese Gillcrist, Darcy Kuran, Terry Marroquin, Kara Mings and Meiko Winton, and they are looking forward to resuming the Student of the Month Breakfast recognitions next school year.
