The faculty and staff of Grand County High School have named Madison Stocks and Koi Cook as the GCHS Students of the Month for March.

Stocks, a senior, is the daughter of James and Sherri Stocks.

She has involved herself in many school activities over the past four years, including track and field, tennis, drama and debate. She has lettered in all four, and placed in the top five at the state track and field competition each year for the past three years.

Outside of school, Stocks has been active in a variety of 4-H projects, including a service project in which she and other 4-H members worked together to decorate the Grand Center every month.

Stocks also works online, selling handmade jewelry and other custom items.

Stocks said she is currently deciding which college she will attend after graduation. She plans to study film and photography.

Cook, a senior, is the son of Derrick and Shelley Cook.

While still a student at GCHS, Cook has taken two college classes through Utah State University – humanities and introduction to psychology.

In school, he has been involved in many activities, including football, basketball and baseball. He has received two first-team All-State awards for football and baseball, as well as two defensive player awards.

Outside of school, Cook has helped out with many service projects in the community, including cleaning trash along state Route 128 and state Route 279 and at the high school parking lot.

Cook said he plans to serve a two-year LDS mission in Trujillo, Peru, and will then return to the U.S. to attend Southern Utah University.
