She loves math, science, and art is plans to attend Corning Community College in the fall. Madison thanked her family and teachers.
Karen Gunning introduced the May Student of the Month for Odessa-Montour, Simonne DeWalt. She described Simonne as an outstanding artist and active volunteers. Simonne is frequently busy at the library, soup kitchen, or other volunteer activity in connection with her church. Simonne hopes to become an elementary teach or children book illustrator. Simonne thanked her teachers, parents, and Rotary for the honor.
Kelly Muir introduced Angel Hamm, a WGHS student who excels in academics, shines behind the stage in productions by various theater groups, and is always performing good deeds for others. She is a positive young lady who has volunteered for many community organizations and even led a can drive for our 100 Years of Rotary Foundation celebration. Angel respectfully declined this recognition and requested that it be dedicated to Ryan Pruitt, a WG Senior who recently passed away. Angel delivered a beautiful speech memorializing Ryan as a passionate person and a wonderful friend, son, brother, and grandson with a memorable laugh. Her speech is published on odessafile.com. Angel has enlisted in the Air Force Special Intelligence unit and will leave June 27.
