In an unprecedented year of change, there are things we can take solace in that do not change, other than getting better. One of these is the dedication and commitment to making the world a better place from Vermilion High School Seniors.
Below is a photo with a short biography of the 9 Senior winners for the Vermilion Lions Club Student of the Month. The VLC each month of the school year selects a winner from the nominations of Senior students generated from the faculty and staff of the high school. The winners are chosen by a committee of Lions Club members based on their academic achievements, community involvement, extracurricular activities, etc. These nine winners were chosen from close to 40 total nominations. In general, the nominated students have performed hundreds of hours of community service and school volunteering. Most, if not all, of the students rank within the top 30% of the Senior class. They have taken hundreds of hours of Advanced Placement or College Credit Plus classes. They have been involved in multiple local, regional, and national service organizations throughout their high school careers.
In sum, they represent what is right with today's young men and women. A great deal of thanks and admiration also goes to the parents and guardians of these fine people.
Normally, these students and their guardians or parents would be honored at one of the monthly Lions Club meetings. Unfortunately due to the past year's restrictions, these dinners could not take place. This in no way diminishes the accomplishments of these individuals and their families.
The Lions Club extends a huge congratulations to all these nominated students and their families. Click on the photos below to learn more about each winner.
