Outstanding students recognized by Rotary Club of Arlington
Rotary StudentsTwo middle and two high school students were recognized Nov. 30 by the Rotary Club of Arlington for making a difference in their respective schools. The Rotarians wanted to recognize students who stand out in different ways in their schools. The Rotary Club also donated $50 to a charity of the student’s choice.

Zeke Basher from Arlington High School was recognized for being a critical component of the Student Leadership program at AHS. “Zeke is polite, fun, energetic and always willing to get things done,” said Principal Duane Fish. Zeke’s $50 contribution will be made to Children’s Hospital.

Haller Middle School student, Trent Nobach, regularly helps others without being prompted. “Trent volunteers to help tutor others, quietly gives positive support to classmates and teammates who are struggling, and commits to helping build a positive leadership program at Haller,” said Haller Assistant Principal, Sally Schroeder. Trent’s $50 contribution will be made to the Arlington Food Bank.

Myranda Ritchie from Weston High School encompasses everything that’s great about the school. “Myranda leads by positive example, demonstrates strong work ethics, and is kind towards all people,” said Weston Counselor, Katy Brown. Myranda’s $50 contribution will be made to Youth Dynamics.

Grace Saenz from Haller Middle School works to make Haller the best place it can be. “She understands the meaning of servant leadership and is willing to pitch in wherever she can, whether it is to create a slideshow for the Veterans Day assembly, do makeup for the “Haller” ween Haunted Maze, or clean and pack the ASB room for a better-organized space,” said Haller Teacher, Holly Christmas-Harris. Grace’s $50 contribution will be made to Operation Warm.

“I would like to thank the Rotary Club of Arlington for helping us recognize these students and donating to their charities,” said Arlington Public Schools Superintendent, Dr. Chrys Sweeting. “These students are great representatives of what our district stands for and I’m extremely proud of them.”
