In an effort to raise student aspirations at Belfast Area High School, the staff has instituted a student of the month program. This program will recognize a boy and a girl at each grade level based on teacher nominations.

The CORE mission statement of the school will provide the criteria for selection: a clear and effective communicator, a self-directed and life-long learner, a creative and practical problem solver, a responsible and involved citizen, a collaborative and quality worker, and an integrative and informative thinker.

The students will receive a T-shirt, a certificate of recognition, and enjoy a pizza luncheon with the principal. Additionally, each student will have his or her picture prominently displayed in the school lobby and on the school’s website.

The December/January students of the month are:

9th grade: Catey McGinn and Kameron Culbertson

10th grade: Romy Carpenter and David Flood

11th grade: Katrina Lapham and Kaleb Benjamin

12th grade: Brooklyn Curry and Scott Kulikowski
