Quinton Jones

Giant Student of the Month

Determined, hardworking, leader, positive, and model student are only a few words used to describe our Giant Student of the Month for October 2020, Quinton Jones. At a playground full of teachers and staff who have worked with Quinton since kindergarten at San Jacinto Elementary, tears of pride were shed for the insurmountable challenges Quinton has overcome. He is determined to be the best student he can be. Quinton motivates others and is a role model for fellow peers; this is evident in his attitude, grades, and participation. Quinton is equipped to tackle his bright future, and we cannot wait to see what this student achieves in Goose Creek CISD. This award is sponsored by Houston Methodist Baytown Hospital.

Joan Daniels

Giant Staff Member of the Month

Nominated by twelve peers, Joan Daniels, our Giant Staff Member of the Month for October 2020 has dedicated 18 years to Lee High School. Joan, the gander attendance clerk, was described as the most positive person in the room, a "working machine," and the "backbone" of the campus. Not only is she support for the staff, but her kind heart and patience with students and parents contribute to making Lee a welcoming and supportive campus. This year with COVID-19, attendance has been challenging. The changes with virtual, hybrid, and face-to-face learning have made it nearly impossible to keep up. Joan does not give up; she does not let her stress show; she comes to Lee High School every day, ready to take on challenges with a smile. The Giant Staff Member of the Month is sponsored by Houston Methodist Baytown Hospital.
