PBL Education Foundation trustees hosted a party for the seven students chosen in the 2016-2017 school year as Students of the Month. Foundation chairman Leslie Cottrell and trustee Connie Ross welcomed the students and their families and introduced the other members of the board of trustees who were in attendance
Cottrell reviewed how students are chosen for this honor. She also emphasized the Foundation’s debt of gratitude to Hudson’s Drug and Hallmark Shop and Gilbane Building Company for sponsoring the program this year.
This year’s event was a fajita and taco bar, provided by Sylvia Rodriuez and her staff at the Arcade Restaurant.
Following the meal, Cottrell introduced each of the students and read statements written by their nominating teachers as well as a summary of their other school and community activities. The final event of the evening was a drawing. Ryley Foellner was the lucky winner of a new iPad. All of the students received $25 in Paxton Bucks when they were selected as monthly winners.
