Mrs. Deb Straatmann (left) and Shelby BeelerEach month during the school year for over 20 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 according to faculty chair, Mrs. Deb Straatmann, 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.  “Obviously in a small school like Fayette, there are some students who could qualify for the reward each month.  To be fair and more diverse, we try not to recognize the same students,” Mrs. Straatmann explained.  By the end of a class’s senior year approximately 32 of its members will have been honored as “Student of the Month.”
