Drake Driscoll, a fifth grader from Hernandez Elementary School, is the San Marcos CISD Superintendent’s Student of the Month for March.

Superintendent Patty Shafer explained to Driscoll, in a visit to Hernandez this week, that she had been singled out from 7,400 students for the distinction.

“Drake always comes to school with a smile on her face,” said Hernandez Principal Rosemary Garza, who nominated Driscoll for the honor. “She completes all her assignments, is kind to others, helps out her friends in class, and is a positive influence. She has a great attitude, is respectful, and responsible: a true Hernandez Hero.”

Driscoll, the daughter of Shawn and Marianne Driscoll, enjoys gymnastics, volleyball and art. It is reported that her favorite pastime, when she is not in school,  is reading in the tree house built for her by her father.

Ms. Driscoll hopes to attend Texas State after graduating.
