Posted: Friday, February 22, 2019

The Huntington Metro Kiwanis recognized outstanding 8th graders from Crestview Middle School at their February 18 meeting. Recognized were Janna Teusch, daughter of David and Kris Teusch, and Jared Cartwright, son of Jeff and Lydia Cartwright.

Teusch introduced her parents and thanked them for the impact they have had on her life. She also thanked her teachers, coaches and friends for their influence and encouragement. Teusch thanked Metro Kiwanis honoring her. She is a straight A student that has been involved in cheerleading, band, gymnastics, track, church and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Agriculture and Math). She is looking forward to attending Huntington North High School, and the challenges she will have there. Teusch plans on attending college but is undecided at this time where and what field of study.

Also recognized was Jared Cartwright. Cartwright introduced his parents and thanked them for their influence, and guidance they have given him. He thanked Metro Kiwanis for this award and Mr. Worth and his teachers for his selection as an outstanding 8th grader. Cartwright said that Mr. Worth and his teachers have been a big influence on his school career and other activities. Cartwright has been involved in Boy Scouts, ASPCL, academic super bowl, music and has played the piano and clarinet. His favorite subject is math and he is a geometry honors student. Cartwright said he loves to read fiction books. He plans to attend college but is undecided as to where, but wants to major in math and then find a job utilizing those math skills.

Each student was given a plaque for the honor and will have their names engraved on the outstanding student plaque made by Huntington Metro Kiwanis member Jim Dinius. Both were nominated by their teachers and were thankful to them for the honor as well as Metro Kiwanis.
