The Elks of Wareham/New Bedford Lodge No. 73 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 Senior Tyler Williams, of Mattapoisett, for being selected as Student of the Month for October by the Old Rochester Regional High School Faculty and Staff.
Tyler is a quiet leader who always chooses to do the “right” thing. He is always on task in class, he participates with enthusiasm and he is very receptive to feedback. I recently observed him invite a student who often gets left out of things to work with him. He is a role model to his peers.
