February Student of the Month junior Morgan Grove is very dedicated to her academics and extracurriculars. She is a part of the Mini-THON committee and an honor roll student every marking period.
Morgan swims for the Lady Lions swim team as well.
“Outside of school, I swim for another team,” Grove said. “I am involved in my youth group, I also babysit as my job.”
Outside of school, Morgan continually volunteers at Leg Up Farm. Leg Up Farm helps kids with disabilities recieve physical therapy, and she has been volunteering there since she was 14 years old.
“I started helping out in the barn with the horses, now I am volunteering there twice a week helping with therapy sessions,” Grove said. “I also still volunteer in the farm. I was asked to help this summer at Leg Up’s week long summer camps.”
“I love volunteering there. It feels so good to watch the kids makes improvements and know that I got to help them achieve their goals.”
Following high school, Grove is interested in a career in either physical or occupational therapy, though she is leaning toward physical therapy.
“In the end, I would like a job in pediatric physical therapy. I love working with kids. One thing that is really close to my heart is getting the chance to help others, that’s why I would like to become a physical therapist,” Grove said.
Junior Charles Flaharty was named Rotary International’s Student of the Month for February.
Charles plays tennis on the Red Lion High School tennis team. He is featured on the announcements almost every morning, and he is also a member of the Class of 2016 Executive Council.
After high school, Flaharty plans on majoring in Astrophysics and would like to go to Grove City College or Brigham Young University.
“I like to hunt and shoot any type of weapon, and I love to go camping too,” Flaharty said.
He is also a boyscout for Troop 184. “I joined boy scouts because I thought it was a cool program and it teaches many valuable skills.”
“I can’t stand it when people pick on others and act like they are better than everybody else,” Flaharty said. “One of my biggest goals is just to make a difference in the world.”
“I would like to work with NASA when I finish college and hopefully go to space one day,” Flaharty said. “I love to ride horses and to hunt, both of which require lots of patience.”
