Four Lemont High School students were honored with April “Student of the Month” accolades at the district’s Board of Education “virtual” meeting on April 20. Included among the honorees were senior Jake Swalec (English), junior Ryan Bernabei (Industrial Technology), sophomore Aleksa Kirkus (Social Studies) and freshman Delaney Zimmerman (CITGO Innovation Academy).
Each month, Lemont High School honors a student from each grade level for hard work and dedication to the school and the community. Selections rotate among the school’s various departments from month to month. Only 32 students earn “Student of the Month” accolades each school year, with four individuals honored each month from October through May. Students may be selected for this prestigious honor only once in their careers at Lemont High School.
Local businessman Brad Grcevic, of Edward Jones, Inc. (Lemont), contributes a donation each month to a charity selected by the “Student of the Month” award winners. April’s winners selected the Chicago Zoological Society to receive the donation.
