By showcasing exemplary school and community service, three Cazenovia High School students were recently named Student of the Month by the Lions Club.
Students Harry Hausser, Riley Fowler and Rae Western were recognized by the Lions Club, with each student receiving a plaque and a photo in the local newspaper. In addition, each recipient is invited to a recognition dinner at the end of the school year.
Hausser is a textbook example of school spirit. On top of a demanding academic schedule, Harry is active in many clubs around school. Working hard for the “C.L.A.S.S.” organization, Harry promotes the various athletic events throughout the district.
According to an excerpt from his nomination form, “Harry often donates his time to announce basketball games as part of his role with that club. He is the one taking photos at all sorts of school events and is willing to attend events no other students will commit to. He is mature beyond his years and interacts well with both staff members and other students.”
Fowler is an eighth grader that loves to help those around him. He spreads positivity to his peers, lifting those around him.
Fowler’s nomination form reads, “Riley has encouraged others to come in for extra science help and helps them with their work. He has worked as a study partner with others who need help. He is involved in sports, and he is a great representative of Cazenovia. I think he deserves to be recognized for all of this positive actions so far this year.”
In just a few short weeks, Western has proven herself as an incredibly valuable and impactful member of the Cazenovia high school community. Rae has been seen doing numerous “good deeds” supporting her classmates.
According to her nomination form, “Rae is the kind of student who is willing to help without any promise of reward or self-satisfaction, and we nominate her for Student of the Month to let her know that her thoughtfulness matters: whenever she reaches out to support a confused or alienated peer, she makes a lasting impression on that person and on our school community.”
