Landreth is Most Valuable Cougar at PCHS PCH

A Pulaski County High School student received the school’s highest honor on Tuesday morning.
Senior Emily Marie Landreth was named PCHS’ “Most Valuable Cougar” during the school’s annual “Investments in Learning” assembly, which focuses on student achievement.
Landreth is active in school and community life. She has participated in Relay for Life, has been an active member of the PCHS Players, received selection as a member of the All District Choir for the past three years, attended the Governor’s School for the Arts, has been selected as the recipient of the “I Dare You” Youth Leadership Award, and served as the ninth grade class president, as well as a junior class SCA (Student Council Association) representative.
Currently, she is serving as SCA president and is the “voice” of the Cougars on the morning announcements at PCHS.
Landreth has been described by faculty members as a natural leader and not a follower, someone who is mature, very polite and respectful of others, someone who is a very hard worker, extremely conscientious, and someone who contributes unselfishly to others, is very genuine, thinks of others’ needs before her own, is funny, smart, intelligent and talented, and is someone who uses humor to brighten everyone’s day.
She is the daughter of Rodney Landreth and Angie Landreth.
As MVC, Landreth received a $250 check and a MVC ring from Jeff Leach on behalf of Jostens, and an engraved gold watch from Lemon’s Jewelry.
The other four senior student nominees who were in the running for the honor of MVC were Samuel James Hester, Jacob Rene Llaneras, George Hayes Owens and Laura Marie Brown.
They each received a $50 check from Scott Arnett on behalf of Horace Mann Investments.
In addition to the recognition of Landreth as MVC, students were recognized for earning academic letters, maintaining perfect attendance, becoming members of the National Honor Society and passing SOL tests.
In addition, the eight newly inducted members of the PCHS Hall of Fame attended the assembly.
After PCHS Principal Rod Reedy introduced and read biographical information about each of the inductees, including Brian Clymer, class of ‘98, Dr. Rodell Cruise Jr., class of ‘81, Joseph Guthrie, class of ‘85, Mark Hanks, class of ‘79, Robert Hoback, class of ‘90, Lori O’Dell, class of ‘93, Dr. John Sadler, III, class of ‘83, and Joel Sayers, class of ‘91, the students, teachers, parents and faculty within the gymnasium gave them a standing ovation for their many accomplishments.
Fifty-two students also received $100 checks from local sponsors, including businesses, organizations and individuals, as part of the SOL Excitement Campaign.

For every SOL test a student passed last year, their name was put in a “treasure chest” to potentially be drawn as recipients of one of the 52 checks.
