During the January meeting, three outstanding students were presented to the Big Sandy Rotary Club as Students of the Month. High School Principal Kim Stradley introduced Junior Gunner Vine and Maggie Flores, 7th grade. Elementary Principal Donna Varnado presented McKinlee Berger, 3rd grade.

As recommendations from teachers were read explaining how they were worthy of this honor, the students stood by quietly, listening. Again, they shared common traits: leadership in the classroom, academic excellence and extracurricular participation. Congratulations to these students!
