The Ava Middle School students of the month for September were treated to lunch last week at Archie’s Restaurant by Kiwanis Club, who sponsors the student recognition each month. During September, citizenship was the character trait being acknowledged.
Eight students were selected as models of citizenship, they are Wyatt Johnson and Lexie Gastineau, eighth grade; Emily Hinrichs and Jayke Lebsock, seventh grade; Paris Henry and Malachi Williams, sixth grade; and Aiden Lane and Braelyn Willis, fifth grade.
