Glenwood City High/Middle School is proud to announce the March Students of the Month. Trustworthy was the trait identified for the March selection; individuals who have demonstrated the ability to always do the right thing, regardless of who is present or watching. There were three students recognized in March, a first for this recognition program, serving to highlight the values that shape our schools. Each of these students are excellent representatives of, not only their peers, but of our Glenwood City community as a whole.
The Co-March Student of the Month at Glenwood City High School is senior Andi Britton. Ms. Jones nominated Andi, recognizing, “It is hard to name one specific incident when Andi has shown the trait TRUSTWORTHY, because it is embedded into the person that she is. It is a genuine quality that exists and I completely and fully trust Andi in all situations, whether it be the classroom experience, when acting as my Art Club president, or as my TAP student. Part of being trustworthy is also being a positive role model for your peers and for younger students. Andi is a great example of this quality, and it just comes natural for her to do the right thing, in all situations. We are very fortunate to have students like Andi in our school, those that take charge, are reliable, are forthright and honest, and who care about what GC stands for. I believe Andi exemplifies all of these characteristics…” Andi is the daughter of Gretchen Olson and Christopher Britton.
The Co-March Student of the Month at Glenwood City High is senior Quinn Taylor. Quinn was nominated by Ms. Brite for his work serving as a mentor for an elementary student. The nomination reads, “An elementary teacher approached me, in October, looking for a mentor for a 3rd grader. The first student who came to my mind was Quinn! When I approached Quinn about this opportunity he was more than willing to meet with this student. It did not take long for Quinn and this student to form a strong relationship, one this student is so proud of. Quinn takes time out of his day to spend quality time with this young boy and has given him someone he can look up to. He has become one of the few people this little boy can trust and rely on.” Quinn is the son of Amanda Taylor and Oscar Taylor.
The March Student of the Month at Glenwood City Middle School was eighth grader, Brendan Booth. Mr. Lamb submitted the nomination on Brendan’s behalf, stating, “When I think about a person being trustworthy, I think about someone that will do the right thing even when no one is watching. Brendan exemplifies this characteristic. He can always be counted on to do the right thing whether it being prepared for an event or day to day school work.” Brendan is the son of Crystal and Steve Booth.
Students of the Month are rewarded by having a lunch provided for them and a friend as well as being issued a unique piece of Hilltopper apparel. In addition, students are provided with preferential parking (for them or a family member) for all school events.
