Members of the Buckley Kiwanis Club honored a trio of “Students of the Month” during an Nov. 16 gathering.

The following descriptions are provided by school staff.

Taylor Thompson

Foothills Elementary

“Taylor Thompson was nominated for demonstrating incredible kindness and responsibility.

“When Taylor got off at her normal bus stop during the first week or so of school, she noticed a small boy wandering around that she had not seen before. She approached the boy and asked if he lived nearby. She then took the boy with her to a nearby house and asked if they knew who he was. They said that they did not. Taylor then walked the boy back to bus stop and waited until someone from our transportation department showed up to get the young man to the correct bus stop. He was a new kindergartner and had accidentally gotten off at the wrong stop. In addition to being an amazing student and citizen, Taylor was a real hero for that boy and his family.”

Katherine Williams

Wilkeson Elementary

“Katherine is a fifth-grader at Wilkeson and is described by her teachers as one of the most conscientious and well-rounded students they have ever met. She volunteers in kindergarten and first-grade classes as a tutor and is a consummate leader in her school. Katherine is a dedicated student who loves a challenge. She would like to study medicine one day. Finally, Katherine is also an actor and a playwright. Most recently, Katherine played the role of Flounder in the White River School District’s production of ‘Little Mermaid.’”

Natalie Wagner

Mountain Meadow Elementary

“Natalie is a fifth-grader at Mountain Meadow and was nominated by her teachers for her service to the school and community as well as her genuine care for others. She is a dedicated student and is constantly contributing to the learning of her classmates. She is also a leader in the school and was instrumental in the fall food drive at Mountain Meadow where the students collected over 3,000 cans of food for the Buckley Food Bank.”

Andrew Marshall

Elk Ridge Elementary

“Drew is a fifth-grader at Elk Ridge who was nominated by his teachers for his work ethic, infectious positive attitude, service to others and his leadership. He defines the “Ranger Way” in all that he does both in the classroom and around the school. Drew is also an extremely focused student who would like to pursue studies as an engineer and ‘develop a machine that can scan for cancer.’”
