Students of the Month are named
Confidence and leadership are traits four Northampton Area High School seniors possess, as they were cited as Students of the Month by Northampton Exchange Club during its Service to Youth program Dec. 5 at Northampton Banquet & Event Center.
Recognized were Jenna Rogers, November Girl of the Month; Tyler Gilliard, November Boy of the Month; Abby Wheeler, December Girl of the Month; and Evan Gillette, December Boy of the Month.
The recipients were given a Lamp of Knowledge plaque, framed certificate and an Exchange Club pen.
On noting the accomplishments of the four seniors, Dr. Rodger Berg, program chairman, said they excel in academic, scholastic and out-of-school activities and their accomplishments are a testament to their commitment to strive to achieve their goals.
“There is no limit to what you can be and do,” Berg told them.
He said the students’ hard work is part of their makeup.
