Mr. Gaspard, Physics Teacher, said, “I have known Peyton Beebe for ten years. Yes, she has been my niece for most of those years. She has some amazing gifts that she shares with the world. She treats everyone with kindness and respect. She always lends a hand to those students struggling. Peyton is very studious, and always making outstanding grades. She is very active in school and church. Peyton always places OHS community first, as well as helping others in need.  Peyton has talent as an artist as well. She is known for artistry in our family as well among her friends. She is the best that Orangefield ISD produces.”

Mrs. Droddy, Advanced Graphics Teacher, “I remember the first time Peyton was in my class. I didn’t quite know what to make of her because it seemed like she was nervous around me. Which made me nervous because that isn’t the usual reaction I get from my students. Now that I know Peyton, she is one of the most awesome young ladies. She is funny, compassionate, has integrity and always gives her best effort. I always looked forward to seeing her work in Graphics and Advanced Graphics; she has got serious talent. Now, as a senior she is my aid which is great because I know I can count on her to do whatever I need with a smile. Peyton absolutely deserves this honor.”

Mrs. Oregel, Calculus Teacher, said, “Peyton Beebe has been a pleasure to teach. I had her last year for PreCal and I talked her into taking AP Calculus this year. I knew after having her last year that she would do great in Calculus. I am very proud of her. Peyton has a wonderful work ethic and is such a sweet student to have in class.”

After graduation, Peyton plans to attend either Lamar University or Texas State University and study psychology or dental hygiene.

She received gift certificates and gifts from:  COS Printing, Wellspring Credit Union, Tiger Rock Martial Arts of Bridge City, Sabine Federal Credit Union, Neches Federal Credit Union, Bridge City Walmart, Bridge City Bank, K&S Couture, 5Point Credit Union and Delta Life Fitness Orange County.
