It is a pleasure to announce that Hannah Harlow has been named the January Elks Student of the Month for Bellows Falls Union High School. Hannah, a senior, is the daughter of Paul and Elizabeth Harlow of Westminster.
Hannah is an extremely talented student; academics and a strong work ethic are among her great strengths. Hannah works hard to excel in her classes. She has a natural interest in learning, and expresses that interest through insightful comments and debate. Willing to take the lead in class discussions and activities, she reviews material maturely and thoughtfully, while encouraging her classmates to do the same. She comes to school every day with a desire to learn and is an active member in the classroom.
Hannah is a leader in every sense of the word. This year as president of the BFUHS student council, she has worked hard to motivate students during fundraisers that benefitted both the school and community. She runs weekly meetings that consist of specific events and activities for not only the Student Council but also the school and general community. In addition to this, Hannah was named the BFUHS 2017 Daughters of the American Revolution Good Citizen, and has also been the captain of the varsity soccer team for the past two years where she has worked hard to not only further develop her skills but to help her teammates and improve team morale. She is a commendable young woman both on and off the field.
Being a charismatic young woman, Hannah goes above and beyond the call of duty. Others gravitate toward her to share her insights and humor. Perhaps one of Hannah’s greatest attributes is her sense of humility. She is never one to boast about her accomplishments, and she accepts praise graciously with a polite smile. She is, in the true sense of the phrase, a well-rounded person.
BFUHS and the Elks are proud to have Hannah represent us this month with this award. Her strong academic background, leadership skills and charisma are attributes that serve her well, and make her a prime candidate for this award.
Congratulations go to Hannah.
