Kara Lescord, October Elks Student of the Month

It is a pleasure to announce that you have been named the October Elks Student of the Month for Bellows Falls Union High School.

You are a dedicated student who clearly works hard in your classes and puts in the time needed to improve your skills.  Always willing to offer assistance when a classmate has a question, you are a good role model to others and a pleasure to work with.

Your positive and caring attitude makes you a great addition to any class or group.You are kind to all students and go out of your way to make people welcomed and accepted.  You are often one of the first to offer to help anyone in need.

Determined to do well in your classes, you make school a priority. If you are absent, you are proactive in getting the work you missed and completing it in a timely manner.

Not only are you a hard working student, you work hard in your outside activities as well.  Through your involvement in extracurricular activities, you support your teammates, show good sportsmanship, and serve as a positive representative of the school and community.

Your honorable dedication to improving the local community does not go unnoticed, and the Student of the Month Committee is impressed with your willingness to get involved as a member of the Greater Falls Connection board, a member of the youth group Above the Influence and also of Friends for Change. Impressive as well is the work study you are doing at the restorative justice center in Bellows Falls.

A dedicated young woman who not only works hard in your classes, but is also motivated to improve the lives of others, you are clearly deserving of this award this month.

Congratulations, Kara. The Elks and BFUHS are honored to have you represent us as the October Elks Student of the Month.
