It is a pleasure to announce that Molly Kelly has been named the December Elks Student of the Month for Bellows Falls Union High School. Molly, a senior, is the daughter of Brian and Darlene Kelly of Westminster.
A member of the Marilee Huntoon Jesse A. Judd Chapter of the National Honor Society, Molly is a hard-working student who puts in a great amount of effort in and out of the classroom to make sure that she is prepared for class. Dedicated to doing well, she often goes above and beyond the requirements of the assignments, seeks extra help and works hard to improve her skills.
A motivated, engaged student, Molly comes to school with a desire to learn. If she is absent, she is proactive in getting her assignments and making up her work in a timely manner. She is an asset to any class or activity; with her optimistic, friendly attitude, Molly can change the dynamic of a class or activity with her presence alone. She brings creativity and a sense of liveliness to class discussions. Molly does not shy away from voicing her opinions or concerns about topics, and she openly listens to and works to understand the views of others. Being sensitive to others and exhibiting a strong sense of humor are some of Molly’s finer qualities. She is a patient young woman who is always willing to help others in need. Molly is a trustworthy student, who can be relied on to produce original and creative work. Molly’s personal qualities parallel her academic characteristics. Perhaps one of her greatest personal qualities is her unusual sense of humility. She accepts praise for all of her accomplishments with utmost sense of modesty.
Molly is a leader in the true essence of the word. She is an avid member of the school’s student council where she was voted as the group’s treasurer by her peers. Through this role she demonstrates creativity, a plethora of unique ideas, and the willingness to participate in all fundraisers and community-based activities. Molly is also a three-time track and field state champion and a four-time field hockey state champion, where she was elected as team captain this past season. Clearly someone who has earned the respect of adults and her peers, she is a positive role model both on and off the field.
Congratulations go to Molly; BFUHS and the Elks are proud to have her represent us this month with this award.
