Prague High School senior Julie Brydon, one of the two October finalists, was named the Shawnee News-Star and Patriot Auto Group Student of the Month for 2019-20.

Prague High School Guidance Counselor Stephanie Leee said Brydon is driven, very active in school as a cheerleader and a sweet young lady.

She is being recognized for her hard work — earning a spot as a finalist for a chance to win a car.

Dedicated to her grades, Lee said Brydon is always driven to be successful.

She maintains a 4.0 GPA and is on track to be valedictorian, Lee said.

“She is enrolled as a concurrent student at Seminole State College,” Lee said.

Brydon has spent more than 800 hours as a volunteer at church and in the community.

Among community service events she has participated in are: making care packages at the HOBY (Hugh O'Brian Youth) Leadership Conference, volunteering at Vacation Bible School, working as football manager, being basketball manager and decorating the community center for the school's Valentine dance and Prom, as well as many other activities.

Awards and honors include academic letter jacket recipient, student council officer, National Honor Society officer, leadership groups member and on various honor rolls.

A large amount of time was devoted to being an ambassador for the Prague Kolache Festival as Kolache Queen. As such, she represented Oklahoma Czechs by speaking and attending events throughout the 2016/2017 school year.

Brydon's parents are Doug and Marria Brydon.
