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 Arielle Troupe, of Wareham for being selected as Student of the Month for January by the Old Rochester Regional High School Faculty and Staff.
Arielle is one of the captains of the volleyball team, and she is a leader in the AFS Club.
Upon hearing that a teacher at ORR was working on a personal project with homeless families in a neighboring town, Arielle came to school the next day with a bunch of food items to donate to the families. She goes out of her way to thank teachers for their help each time she asks a question or asks for help.
