The Rotary Club of Westerville, which sponsors a Student of the Month program, recognized recipients at a luncheon at Villa Milano held on February 14. February students are: Melissa Kramer, Westerville Central High School; Spencer Fisher, Westerville North High School; Mubarik Mohamed, Westerville South High School; and Colin Madigan, St. Francis DeSales High School.
The purpose of the program is twofold: to recognize outstanding students who have distinguished themselves by serving their school and to expose them to the Rotary Club and its ideal of “Service Above Self.” Students selected join Rotarians for lunch every week for a month, and have the opportunity to interact with members.
