Jasmine Cousar has been named the Duke University Durham Public Schools Student of the Month for October. The Early College High School senior holds a 3.4 weighted GPA and spends the majority of her time outside of school serving as a member of her church choir, the mime team, the praise team and volunteering on various church committees.

Jasmine said that although her favorite subject is math, she’d prefer a career in elementary education and wants to teach kindergarten or become a speech pathologist.

For fun, Jasmine likes to dance, sing and hang out with her friends and family. She credits her parents and older brother for inspiring her to work hard and says that, “they push me to go for my dreams and never stop.”

After graduation, Jasmine plans to attend North Carolina A&T and double major in elementary education and speech pathology.
