The faculty & staff at Rockridge High School are pleased to announce that Callie Causemaker has been selected as the October Student of the Month.  Callie is a senior at Rockridge High School and is the daughter of Joe & Keesha Causemaker of Milan.

Callie reports that her favorite teacher is Mrs. Neece.  She is active at RHS on the Football, Basketball, and Competitive Cheerleading Teams.  She also is a member of the Student Council, National Honor Society, and Fellowship of Christian Athletes.

Outside of school she is active in competitive dance at the Turning Pointe Dance Studio in Andalusia.  She also serves as an assistant coach at Turning Pointe, where she works with the younger dancers at the studio.  Callie reports that she enjoys hanging out with friends in her spare time and that she is taking lessons to get her private pilot’s license. 

Some of Callie’s teachers had the following to say about her nomination:

  • English Teacher & Student Council Adviser Ms. Brandy Cope said, “She is a great leader, very polite, and is responsible.  Callie's great smile, positivity, and tenacity are not only refreshing, they help to encourage everyone around her. 
  • Social Studies Teacher Mrs. Brandee Neece added, “Callie Causemaker is a student who I get the privilege of seeing twice a day.  Callie is enrolled in Psychology and American Government and in both courses, she strives for excellence in completion of her daily work as well as in her performance on tests and quizzes.  She does not hesitate to ask questions nor is she afraid to express her feelings on current affairs.  Outside of the classroom, Callie is a definite leader throughout her participation as a cheerleader and a pivotal member of the Rockridge Student Council.  She was an instrumental organizer of the various events on Activity Day and throughout the Homecoming week.  But her signature feature is the constant smile on her face, which is priceless.”
  • Math Teacher Mrs. Angie DeKeyrel stated, “Callie always has a smile on her face and a positive attitude, even when Calculus gets tough. She always works hard.”

After high school, Callie plans to attend the University of Dubuque to major in Aviation with a goal of becoming a commercial pilot.
