LANGDON, N.H. – Senior Gisele Dierks was selected as our Student of the Month for January. Gisele Dierks is the daughter of Angelica Dierks and Jeff Nicolay of Charlestown, N.H. Dierks was nominated by the Foreign Language department and was described as a student who, “goes above and beyond with all her assignments and responsibilities. She is the ideal student. She works hard to improve her knowledge and skills. She cares about learning, not just achieving grades. Her maturity level is exceptional. She is always willing to help others in the class and contributes to discussions with thoughtful and intelligent comments. She is always prepared for class despite her hectic schedule.”
Dierks has been a high honor roll student her entire time at Fall Mountain. She’s received the Social Studies Award for Excellence and the Dartmouth Book Award. Dierks is fully involved in the Fall Mountain community. She is a member of Interact, National Honor Society, Jazz Band, Madrigals, and numerous clubs. She is a class officer and freshman mentor. She is a member of the cross country running, cross country skiing, and track and field teams.
Outside of school, Dierks works in childcare and tutoring. In her free time, she enjoys hang-gliding, horseback riding, photography, and playing the violin and guitar. After graduation, Dierks plans to attend college for liberal arts though she is undecided as to who will be lucky enough to get her.
Congratulations, Gigi, from the Fall Mountain Regional School District and the Bellows Falls Elks Chairman, Smokey Aumand.
