Metro Kiwanis recognizes outstanding students

Posted: Friday, January 30, 2015

The Huntington Metro Kiwanis recognized Huntington Catholic’s outstanding eighth graders on Monday, January 26. The outstanding students were selected by the Huntington Catholic School’s eighth grade staff. Each individual’s accomplishments, and who excelled in scholarship, citizenship, sportsmanship, character-building activities, faith, extra-curricular achievement and leadership were honored.

The guest speaker, Police Chief Chad Hacker, spoke to the students and Kiwanis about issues that face students such as bullying and intimidation. Chief Hacker spoke about students surrounding themselves with good influences from sports, clubs, extracurricular activities and family. He also talked about being a difference maker by standing up for others even though they may be a little different, and to volunteer for things that help make a difference to individuals and the community.

Jim Dinius, a Huntington Metro Kiwanis member and past Lieutenant Governor, introduced Savannah Albertson, daughter of Tim and Tiffany Albertson, and Samuel Mickley, son of Travis and Suzanne Mickley, as the outstanding eighth graders of Huntington Catholic.

Albertson has participated in extracurricular school activities that include basketball and volleyball. She also loves spending time with her family. And is planning on attending Bishop Luers High school where she hopes to play volleyball and basketball. Mickley has actively participated in extracurricular school activities that include basketball and football.

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. Kiwanis congratulates each student on being an outstanding eighth grader.
