November Student of the Month: Bethel High School senior Colton Ingmire

Bethel High School senior Colton Ingmire, one of the two September finalists, was named the Shawnee News-Star and Patriot Auto Group Student of the Month for 2019-20.

Bethel High School teacher Andrea Depuy said Ingmire is a diligent worker, dedicated and is task-oriented.

“Colton is a commendable example to his peers,” she said, “always encouraging those around him to make good choices.”

Depuy said Ingmire is involved in Bethel's Cross Country and Track teams; he has been awarded varsity letter jacket all three years.

“He is also involved in his church with the youth group and serves on many community service projects through his church,” she said.

He has served in various capacities through organizations such a Student Council, National Honor Society and Prowl-SADD, she said.

“Colton remains engaged with his peers, while also mentoring younger students,” she said.

Bethel High School teacher Brianne Johnson said Ingmire has impressed her with his strong work ethic and a desire to become better at all he does.

“He is able to take feedback and constructive criticism and grow from it,” Johnson said, “always striving to be better.”

Ingmire takes the initiative to discuss things he doesn't understand and to get clarification, she said.

She said he is an active member of FFA, serving as Historian, as well as being on the shooting and judging teams.

Colton is the type of student who serves these roles well and always upholds the 'I believe' tenets of the creed, especially in the aspects of leadership and helping others, Johnson said.

“I highly recommend Colton as Student of the Month,” she said. “His integrity fortitude and humbleness will all serve him well in this position.”
