Fox 33's Standout Out Student: Markeldruis Henderson

Plain Dealing, LA - Every week Fox 33 News will feature a standout student from the ArkLaTex.  These students challenge themselves to beyond what's required academically. 
 
This week's student stands out on the football field and in the classroom.
 
Nichole Nuccio says, "Kel is one of those students that is kind of one in a million."
 
Markeldruis Henderson is a sophomore and a starter on Plain Dealing High School's varsity football team.  His teachers say he's more than just an athlete, he's a standout student because he steps up off the field.
 
His personality is just unlike anyone else's.  He's funny, he's energetic, he cares about his work and most importantly he cares about others."
 
Markeldruis loves math and is active in Nuccio's robotics program.
 
"He is all about getting the task done, but not leaving anyone behind."
 
That's what makes Markeldruis a great leader on campus.
 
"I can see him being the president.  He can be anything he wants to be as long as he stays true to himself and continues to work hard and I expect him to do great things."
 
Standout students can be nominated by teachers, coaches, mentors or principals.
