WIAA Names Drew Vickrey and Alexis Gillam as "Give Me 5!" Star Students of the Month
5/4/2018

 The WIAA is pleased to announce Cascade Christian Academy's Drew Vickrey and Meridian Middle School's Alexis Gillam as the April “Give Me 5” Star Students of the Month.


Drew Vickrey is a seventh grade student at Cascade Christian Academy in Wenatchee, WA. He serves as a prominent member of the CCA basketball team. Outside of basketball, Vickrey participates in school related events, including community service projects. He prioritizes all activities, practices and games, always arriving on time.

Vickrey sets an example for other kids in school and on the basketball team. His positive attitude is contagious, and he always has a smile on his face. Vickrey enjoys a challenge, especially when it comes to playing against players that are larger than him. He participates for the fun of the competition and will be the first to congratulate his opponent if they win. Cascade Christian Academy Athletic Director, Greg Ringering, witnesses Vickrey’s character and upbeat personality on a daily basis.

“You will never hear him make a negative remark about or to anyone,” Ringering said. “He lifts up his teammates with positive encouragement and plays at 100% all of the time.”

Ringering added his compliments to Vickrey’s respectful behavior, and how he is truly a considerate young man.

“Drew shows respect to his teachers by never talking back,” Ringering noted. “He shows respect for himself by giving his best, and shows respect for others with his uplifting words and attitude.”



 


The Female Student of the Month is Alexis Gillam from Meridian Middle School in Kent, WA. In her eighth grade year, she participates in volleyball, basketball and soccer, as well as club soccer outside of school. Gillam also plays flute in the band, and is a key member in the Meridian WEB crew. Outside of school, Gillam is a member of Girl Scouts, Angel Tree Ministry, and works as a Vacation Bible School teacher. Even with all her extracurriculars, Gillam finds time to keep up on Honors level schoolwork, and maintains a 4.0 GPA.

Gillam’s wide-spread participation in athletics and activities makes her a role model for all students at MMS. She supports her teammates and always pushes herself to give her best effort. Gillam desires to be the best, and knows that sometimes failure leads to improvement. Her involvement with the community is driven by her desire to better the people around her. Her dedication and work ethic shine bright through everything Gillam is involved in. Adam Greve, athletic director at Meridian MS, only had glowing remarks about Gillam and her contributions to the Meridian Monarch family.

“She is a clear example of how dedication to sports and education, combined, can help in the development of character, respect for self and others and citizenship,” Greve stated. “She is a positive role model for others in the school and treats people in the finest manner possible.”
