Every month, juniors at Red Lion get to participate in the Rotary Student of the Month program. Only two students chosen every month will earn the title.
“Every month, a different guidance counselor gets to choose one of their students that they think is worthy of being student of the month. This involves school, community, and academic requirements,” said Red Lion High School guidance counselor Kathy Moser, who got to choose the Student of the Month in October.
“These students that are chosen represent the Red Lion Rotary Club. They stand up and tell something about themselves and they get a Rotary Award and also get their picture taken,” said Moser. “This picture will go in the local newspaper. They also get to go to The Great American Saloon for a luncheon.”
Red Lion’s Students of the Month for October were Hayley Althoff and Ian Adler. The Students of the Month for September were Alex Keough and Megan McGuire.
These students will have the opportunity to participate in a Summer Leadership Preparation Camp with a free application.
“Years back, we used to give this title to seniors but since they will sometimes be unable to participate in the summer camp because of college acceptances ectera then we decided to give it to juniors,” Mrs. Moser said. “That way, they will be able to attend the summer camp and prepare for their senior year.”
