Eleven local students were honored by the Kiwanis Club of Sunnyslope during its “Student of the Month” luncheon, held Jan. 10 at Sunnyslope High School. Nine were originally to be honored at a December luncheon but the event was unexpectedly cancelled.
Honorees included seventh-grader Brian Ramirez and eighth-grader Jamie Williams from Sunnyslope School. Ramirez, who plays basketball and the trumpet, was applauded for always being on task, and for being a diligent worker who sets high expectations for himself while still making time to help others in his classes. Williams is a scholar athlete, maintaining a 4.0 GPA and membership in the National Junior Honor Society while playing on the volleyball, basketball and softball teams.
