Four outstanding middle and high school students were recognized on Jan. 25 by the Rotary Club of Arlington for making a difference. The Rotarians wanted to recognize students who stand out in different ways in their schools. The Rotary Club also donated $50 to a charity of the student's choice.

Peyton Brown from Arlington High School was recognized for being an outstanding student and athlete at AHS. "She is simply the best role model a school could hope for to have for its current and future athletes," said AHS Athletic Director Tom Roys. Peyton's $50 contribution will be made to the American Cancer Society.

Haller Middle School student, Quintin Yon-Wagner, is a leader and mentor in the school. "He is always a mentor to those around him, helping them understand the concepts we are learning," said Haller science teacher Scott Rice. Quintin's $50 contribution will be made to the American Indian College Fund.

Matthew Resnick from Post Middle School provides encouragement and support to students having a hard time. "Matthew displays a positive attitude by graciously accepting feedback and making efforts to improve, which is evident by his academic progress," said Post teacher Caren Gallanger. Matthew's $50 contribution will be made to the Sarvey Wildlife Center.

Nekco Jones from Weston High School is an outstanding student who embodies the qualities of a true leader. "Nekco is a facilitator for Restorative Justice practices in which she works to help her fellow students resolve conflicts," said Principal Will Nelson. Nekco's $50 contribution will be made to the Northwest Organization for Animal Help (NOAH).

"I am proud of our students and their commitment to excellence and service to others," said Arlington Public Schools Superintendent Chrys Sweeting.
