Four Lemont High School students were honored with December “Student of the Month” accolades at the district’s Board of Education meeting on December 16. Included among the honorees were senior Hailey Sawatzky (Social Studies), junior Justin Paluch (CITGO Innovation Academy), sophomore Caitlyn Finn (English) and freshman Nick Buczyna (Industrial Technology).
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. This month’s winners selected the #EllieStrong GoFundMe page to receive the donation.
