jasmineJasmine Carter has been selected as the December Senior of the Month. She is the daughter of Claudia Carter of Buena Vista.

Administrators and teachers state she is always respectful and willing to help with anything that is needed.

Jasmine has excellent attendance and grades. She is able to maintain a 3.6 GPA while being involved in many extra-curricular activities during her high school years.

She is Treasurer of the Senior Class, Vice-President of the National Honor Society, President of the Spanish Club and serves as the Student Representative for the school board. Additionally, Jasmine is a member of Interact and SIRPHA (Students in Rockbridge Promoting Health Alternatives). She attended YADAPP and won a $250.00 grant to implement a plan for drug prevention.

Jasmine has been accepted at Sweet Briar College.  Her hope is to study abroad in a Spanish speaking country and later pursue a career as a History or Spanish teacher.
