Alcorn Central is proud to recognize Jaime Berry, the daughter of Kathy Berry and Scott Berry, as one of our Rotary Students of the month.

Jaime is an extraordinary student at ACHS through academics, community involvement, and extracurricular activities and who is always positive and willing to get involved.

Her freshman year, she received 1st place awards in Geometry and STEM and 2nd place awards in Health and English I. Her sophomore year, Jaime received 1st place awards in Algebra III, Psychology and Sociology, 2nd place awards in Algebra II and a 3rd place award in A&P.

Her junior year she received 1st place awards in U.S. History and Spanish II. She also was awarded the Woodmen Life History award and received Perfect Attendance and was a Northeast Math and Science participant.  Jaime has had to work hard to receive these 1st and 2nd place awards and it has paid off because she is currently ranked second in her extremely competitive graduating class and scored a 30 on her ACT.

Jaime has received a number of honors and awards while in high school. She was selected to attend Mississippi Governors School which is a three-week long program held on the MUW campus. She is on the Principal Leadership Council, placed 2nd two times at NE Science Fair allowing her to advance to State, and has been selected by faculty as one of our three ACE Leadership Candidates.

Jaime has been involved as a volunteer in these activities: Rotary Club Food Basket, Magnolia Company picnic, Humane shelter volunteer, Corinth Theatre-Arts, helped with ACHS campus clean-up, currently mentors students in the Community Connections program, ACHS “Pi” Day, Blood Drive volunteer, Rotary 5K Run and Project Ukraine.

Besides academics and volunteering, Jaime has found time to participate in numerous clubs at ACHS. She has been a member of the Beta Club for 4 years and served as Vice President last year and President this year. She has been a member of the Principal’s Student Advisory team for the last two years and has been active in the Academic and Math Clubs since 2014 and currently is the Math Club Secretary.

Other activities that Jaime enjoys are traveling, sketching, learning other languages, dance, and soccer.

After Jaime graduates high school, she plans to attend MSU Shackouls Honors College to pursue a degree in Chemical Engineering.
