Each month, this recognition is bestowed upon students who exhibit scholastic achievement, leadership, honesty, community service, teamwork, and empathy, among other notable characteristics.
Naomi was nominated for this award by the 8th grade teachers. On top of being an excellent student who achieved Principal’s List honors each quarter this year, she is also involved in band, Battle of the Books, and Genius Hour. Naomi is a talented artist whose artwork was selected for the cover of the Pamlico County Middle School yearbook. She is a generous person who is a role model for other students. We are all very proud to nominate this outstanding young lady for the Rotary Student of the Month award.
Dakota is an 11th grader and is enrolled in the health science education program. She maintains high academic standards while volunteering in her community, participating in extracurricular activities, and working part-time. Additionally, Dakota is a positive role model at school and in the community and exemplifies the Rotary's characteristics of leadership, community service, and high academic achievement. Health Science Teacher Lynn Hardison had this to say about her nominee, “Dakota will make a positive contribution to the health care profession. I am very proud of her accomplishments and I would welcome her taking care of me one day.”
Students who are nominated for this award receive a framed certificate and a Rotary coin which states the Rotary Four-Way Test: “Of the things we think, say or do: 1) Is it the TRUTH?, 2) Is it FAIR to all concerned?, 3) Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?, and 4) Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?” To further commemorate this honor, the Rotary Club has placed a plaque in both schools which displays the name of each recipient of this prestigious award.
