The Elks of Wareham Lodge No. 1548 sponsors the Elks Student of the Month and Student of the Year Awards for students enrolled in local area high schools. The criteria used in nominating a student includes a student who excels in scholarship, citizenship, performing arts, fine arts, hobbies, athletics, church, school and community service, industry and farming.
We congratulate junior Katherine Gillis, of Mattapoisett, for being selected as Student of the Month for the month of October. Katherine is a model student. She is president of the junior class, a strong student, and a three-sport athlete. This past summer, Katie was selected out of hundreds of applicants to be one of 13 girls to attend the Armstrong Scholars Program, a 12-day backpacking adventure in the High Sierra. Katie is kind to her peers, she leads by example, and she is an outstanding member of our community.
