Rotary Club honors pair of students
Will Hartmann and Jasmine Johnson were honored Jan. 15 after being selected Forest Grove Rotary Youth Citizens of the Month.
Hartmann, a senior at Forest Grove High School, drew praise for his hard work in the classroom and on the job site. Several teachers noted that Hartman is taking very challenging classes and is among their top students. Some of the highest accolades came from Chris Higginbotham, who teaches construction classes and oversees the students selected to build a Viking House each year.
Wills maturity, dedication, work ethic and skill level put him among the best students the program has ever enjoyed, Higginbotham said. On top of all that, he is a heck of a nice guy who works productively, cooperatively and respectfully with everyone on the crew. I am honored to have had him as a student.
Johnson, an eighth-grader at Neil Armstrong Middle School, was described as a bright and cheerful student who is always there to lend a helping hand. One example cited was a recent birthday party in which she asked friends to bring pajamas that could be donated to low-income kids.
Our community and the world at large will become a better place because Jasmine is in it, wrote language arts teacher Sarah Holt. We are all very proud of what she has done and all she will do.
