Dora Jones, March Elks Student of the Month

It is a pleasure to announce that Dora Jones has been named the March Elks Student of the Month for Bellows Falls Union High School.  Dora, a senior, is the daughter of Peter and Donna Jones of Rockingham.

Clearly dedicated to academics, Dora has done a great job throughout high school making sure all of her academics are taken care of.  As a result of this, she has been able to choose a unique path for her senior year.  In addition to her studies at BFUHS, Dora is working and participating in the Work Based Learning Program, which requires great time management.   Dora does an impressive job balancing the various requirements of these commitments, and she makes sure her work schedule fits with whatever schedule the school is running to meet all of her obligations. 

Always friendly and helpful, Dora has a great attitude.   Although slightly shy, she   is friendly, witty and genuinely cares about her peers.  She goes out of her way to offer a friendly hello, a bright smile and a helping hand where she sees a need.  Dora always gives 100% to work, school and work study.

Despite the challenges of being pulled in many different directions and sometimes being double booked, Dora has done a great job balancing all facets of her life.  She comes to school every day eager to learn, and willing to participate in her classes and school activities.   She brings the same enthusiasm to her job and her Work Based Learning placement.    

Not only dedicated to her academics, Dora has participated in the field program and is an active member of the BFUHS Student Council.  A quiet leader who serves as a good role model for both the BFUHS community and area community as well,  BFUHS and the Elks are honored to have Dora represent us this month with this award.

Megan Banik, February Elks Student of the Month

It is a pleasure to announce that Megan Banik has been named the February Elks Student of the Month for Bellows Falls Union High School.  Megan, a senior, is the daughter of Molly and Paul Banik of Westminster.

Megan is a dedicated student who works extremely hard in her classes. She does not just work hard for good grades; she works hard for the sake of learning and improving herself. She excels in the classroom, completes all of her assignments in a timely fashion and is an excellent contributor to class discussions. 

Always positive, Megan is an asset to every class and activity.  She is friendly and welcoming and works hard to encourage others to participate.  She is determined to succeed and does so with a smile on her face. She greets peers and staff enthusiastically every day. 

Not only is a leader in the classroom, Megan is  a good role model in athletics as well.   As captain of the BFUHS field hockey team, she was a positive leader that kept the team focused towards their goal to win the Division 1 State Title.

 Megan goes out of her way to help her school and community. She has volunteered on several occasions to assist and help lead community-based fundraisers and food and toy drives through the BFUHS Student Council.  She is not even an official member of the Council, but is always willing to lend a helping hand, and in response does not expect any notoriety for her efforts. 

A quiet leader and good role model, BFUHS and the Elks are proud to have Megan represent us this month with this award.
