At the Richmond Hill Exchange Club meeting on March 13, the group recognized its Richmond Hill High School Students of the Month for March and April.
Beth Belfield was selected as the Student of the Month for March. She was joined by Janet Thayer, president of the Exchange Club, and Erin Turner, English teacher at Richmond Hill High School.
Alejandra Gonzales was named the Student of the Month for April. She too was joined by Janet Thayer, president of the Exchange Club, and Erin Turner, English teacher at Richmond Hill High School.
For over 30 years, the Exchange Club of Richmond Hill has presented Students of the Month awards to outstanding seniors at Richmond Hill High School. The award is presented for the months of September through April of each year, based on academic performance, community involvement, leadership, and all-around excellence.
Each monthly winner is presented a check for $100.
In May of each year, the Student of the Year is announced from among the monthly winners, with the presentation of a plaque and a check for $1,000 to the winning student during RHHS Honors Night.
The Exchange Club said it appreciates the support and assistance of the administration and Honors Committee of RHHS, in helping them recognize some of their most outstanding students. Special thanks to Exchange Club member, Laura Evans, for organizing the Student of the Month and Student of the Year program again this year.
