Rotarians Recognize Outstanding High School Students


March 2019 Students of the Month

Once again a person to-be-recognized could not be present.  FHS Principal Patrick Tray (right) is holding a Certificate of Recognition for sophomore Meghan Felten, who ia not present for the picture.  On April 10, 2019, four FHS students were recognized as the outstanding students for the month of March.  In the picture (left to right), Fayette Rotary President Gale Schafer, senior Emma Hoover, junior Jayden Wright, freshman Devan Elliott and Principal Tray.  (Picture courtesy of James H.

November Students of the MOnth

Weather, scheduling and timing all played a factor in Fayette Rotary's attempt to recognize the Fayette High School November Students of the Month.  Typically Rotary recognizes these students on the third Wednesday following the month for which they are chosen, but in this case, it was February 13 before the event occurred.  Pictured above are (l to r) FHS Principal Patrick Tray, Ava Valencia, senior; Cody Hill, junior; Aaron Barber, sophomore; Fayette Rotary President Gale Schafer and Laci Fuhlage, freshman.   (Picture courtesy of Roger Lembke.)

Fayette High School October Students of the Month joined Rotary Club members for the annual Christmas meal and to be recognized for their outstanding achievements. Pictured above are (l to r) Rotary Vice-President Chris Ocker; Gracie Doolin, freshman; Dillan Lembke, sophomore; Emma Miner, junior; Madison Reed, senior and FHS Principal Patrick Tray.   (Picture courtesy of Roger Lembke.)


September 2018 Students of the Month

Each month members of the Fayette High School faculty and students select a person from each class for outstanding achievement during the past month.  Those selected for the month of September are (l to r) Cameron Stornello, senior; Kyle Durham, junior; Kaitlin Furneaux, sophomore and Brittany Mantle, freshman.  Also pictured are Patrick Tray, Principal and Chris Ocker, Rotary Vice-President.   (Picture courtesy of Roger Lembke.)

Each month during the school year for over 30 years the Fayette Rotary Club has welcomed “Fayette High School Students of the Month” to one of its meetings.  The purpose of the Student of the Month program is to acknowledge students, who have made some type of positive accomplishment, received some type of award or who have distinguished themselves in some positive manner.

Students attend the meeting with a member of the high school faculty.  Each student is introduced by the faculty member, who tells something about the reason the student has received the honor.  The students are then asked to tell the Rotary Club a little about themselves.  

The students are chosen by the Student of the Month committee, which consists of both high school students and high school faculty.
