Students Receive January Rotary Student of the Month Award

Each month, this recognition is bestowed upon students who exhibit scholastic achievement, leadership, honesty, community service, teamwork, and empathy, among other notable characteristics.
Bonnie, an 8th grade student, was nominated for this award by the 8th grade team based on her strong work ethic, intrinsic motivation, and respectful nature. Bonnie is respected and well-liked by teachers and peers alike. She is a member of the PCMS band and the Jr. Beta Club. Bonnie is a positive asset to the Pamlico County School System and it is her teachers’ pleasure to nominate her for Rotary Student of the Month.
Shawna is very active in the school as a member of the track team, NJROTC, student government, and the National Technical Honor Society. Even when she misses class due to these activities, she makes every effort to make up all missing work and maintain a good grade in my class. Despite being concerned that she would have trouble with drafting, she continued to try hard and is one of the top students in her class. Shawna was nominated by her drafting teacher, Paul Odom.
Student 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.
