Student of the Month Awards

Odessa-Montour High School senior Kyle Frasier was honored as our O-M Student of the Month for January. Frasier was introduced by Russ Gardner, who said Frasier, a High Honor student, a member of the school swim team and a member of "outside organizations like the Future Farmers of America" -- has a "positive outlook" that makes him "the kind of student that teachers love to have in the classroom, the kind of student we want in our schools, the kind of person other students want on their team."Frasier, who works on the Hoffman farm, hopes to have his own farm one day. He is undecided about college, but said that if he goes, it will be to Morrisville State for its agricultural program. Frasier thanked his parents and said he was honored to be recognized by the Club.


Rotary honored WG Senior, Rong Lin at its Thursday meeting. Rong was introduced by teacher, Kelsey Wood. Rong moved from China four years ago and has been in Kelsey’s history class for 2 years. She said he is “the most incredibly hard working student.” He has been learning English at the same time learning American history and culture. Rong is also on the Varsity swim team, and is a “true asset to the community.” Rong plans on attending college in NYS. Rong thanked his aunt and uncle and both Miss Wood and Mrs. Kressly, who are both patient and reassuring with Rong. “I wouldn’t be able to stand here right now [without them],” Rong said.
