At our January meeting, Lion Kathy Wallace presented our December student of the month, Tyler Widrick. Tyler was not able to attend the award ceremony due to a rescheduled wrestling match. Tyler is the son of Leonard and Marlene Widrick. Tyler plans to attend Jefferson Community College in the Fall with the ultimate goal of becoming a high school history teacher. Tyler is an excellent student with a course load that includes many AP subjects. He is captain of the wrestling team, active in French Club and National Honor Society. Tyler volunteers with his church youth group and plays fast pitch recreational softball. He works construction with his father during the summer months and enjoys outdoor activities such as hunting, fishing, hiking and trapping. Congratulations Tyler!
