Rotary Club of Grafton recognizes students of the month

GRAFTON—On November 20, the Rotary Club of Grafton held their Student of the Month Luncheon at Grafton High School.

During the event, the ProStart Class, taught by Bonnie Woods, prepared and served a traditional Thanksgiving dinner themed lunch.

Two students from Grafton High School’s senior class were honored at the November Students of the Month. Representing their class and school were Brooke Moyer and Aaron Pander.

Brooke Moyer is the daughter of Tammy and Homer Moyer. At Grafton High School, she is a member of the Bearcat Marching and Concert bands, as a piccolo and flute player.

Brooke has already been accepted into the West Virginia University School of Medicine, where she will pursue a degree in Exercise Physiology. After graduation from the program, she hopes to become a Physical Therapist.

When not busy with her studies or performing with the bands, Brooke keeps herself busy working part-time at Old Navy.

Aaron Pander is the son of Kristy and Jason Pander. As a student at Grafton High School, he is a member of the National Honor Society. He has also participated on the cross country and track teams.

Outside of his studies, Aaron stays busy as a member of the Eagle Scouts. As a community service project, he built a bridge at Tygart Lake State Park.

Following graduation from GHS, Aaron will be traveling as a missionary for two years, with the Church of the Later Day Saints. Upon his return, he plans on attending West Virginia University to obtain a degree in computer science and electrical engineering. His goal is to one day develop software.

Following the presentation of each student, Rotary President Greg Cartwright and Rotarian Lorraine Isner presented Brook and Aaron with Student of the Month certificates, a book entitled “365 Daily Motivations’ and logic puzzles to help keep their minds sharp.

Congratulations to both students on their achievements!
