Metro Kiwanis recognizes eighth graders

Posted: Friday, February 10, 2017

The Huntington Metro Kiwanis recognized Huntington Catholic’s outstanding eighth graders on Monday, January 30. The students were selected by the Huntington Catholic’s eighth grade staff for each individual’s accomplishments and who excelled in scholarship, citizenship, sportsmanship, character-building activities, faith, extra-curricular achievement and leadership.

The guest speaker for the evening was Sheriff Terry Stoffel who spoke to both the students and the Kiwanis group. He spoke about integrity and what it means.

Derek Boone, principal of Huntington Catholic, introduced Grace Bryant, daughter of Mark and Sherry Bryant, and Seth Scheiber, son of Bill and Susan Scheiber, as the outstanding eighth graders of Huntington Catholic.

Bryant introduced her parents and brother, Dominic, and thanked the Huntington Metro Kiwanis and Huntington Catholic faculty for her selection and the outstanding eighth grader award. Grace said she enjoys paintings and drawings that tell stories. She also loves to read.

Scheiber introduced his parents, brothers, Darrin and Caleb and his grandparents. Seth thanked the Huntington Metro Kiwanis and Huntington Catholic faculty for his selection as outstanding eighth grader. Seth has actively participated in band, basketball and water sports. His plans include a future in Marine Biology, marketing or veterinarian medicine.

Each student received a plaque and will have his or her name engraved on the outstanding student plaque that was made by Huntington Metro Kiwanis member Jim Dinius. The plague is displayed in a prominent place in the school. Congratulations to each student on being outstanding eighth grader.
