A trio of young people were honored when members of the Buckley Kiwanis Club selected their January Students of the Month.

The following student biographies were provided by the club.

Emma Cash, White River High School

“Emma Cash is defined by her coaches and teachers as ‘one of the most selfless, hard-working and caring kids I know.’ She is an exceptional scholar and athlete and maintains a rigorous course of study including Advanced Placement classes while competing in volleyball, basketball and track. Emma is more than a leader among her teammates, she is also a key member of the leadership team at White River High School. She is always willing to lend a helping hand and offer support regardless of the situation. In addition to the amazing work that Emma does at White River High School, she is also active in her church community and volunteers her time and talents.”

Ava Cash, Glacier Middle School

“Ava was nominated by her teachers for the daily contributions she makes to Glacier Middle School. She is a beacon of genuine positivity and is constantly going the extra mile to help others. Whether helping Mr. Howisey with playlists for rec time, serving as a team captain, helping out with leadership activities or supporting her peers in class, Ava is constantly demonstrating her natural leadership abilities. Ava is able to balance her academics and leadership work with other activities including choir, basketball and track. Moreover, she does all of this with an infectious smile that brightens everyone’s day.”

Brooke Mahler, Carbonado Historical School District

“Brooke has attended Carbonado School since kindergarten. She has been a leader at the school from the beginning. She is a model student that always wants to assist anyone in need. Brooke has been a tutor for the kindergarten classroom this year and has served in the Leadership Class for the past three years. She was the vice-president of the school last year where she led many school activities. Most recently, she completed a food drive for our community. The school raised over 1,300 items, well over the goal set. Brooke has assisted with school dances and assemblies to involve all of the students at Carbonado School. She is recognized as one of our leaders.

Lastly, in the area of sports, Brooke excels in anything that she puts her energy into. Brooke plays all three sports that Carbonado offers to its students (volleyball, basketball and fastpitch). In addition, Brooke plays on a select soccer team. She is someone that a coach dreams about. She always seeks to improve her skills, assist the team in any fashion, and is willing to provide positive support to her teammates. Brooke is truly all about the team!”
