Tressler Earns Elks Student of the Year!

 
This program is designed to recognize outstanding young men and women for their achievements in school and community.   The Elks wish to recognize and praise those students for their accomplishments, their activities, and their contributions to society through this program. 

Van Wert Lodge No. 1197, Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks have selected Kaylie Tressler, senior at Vantage Career Center as the recipient of the Student of the Year for Van Wert Lodge.

Kaylie was selected as the Student of the Month for April.   She also received the President’s Volunteer Service Award from President Trump.   Kaylie will graduate this spring from Paulding High School.

Students are nominated by their high schools to receive the Student of the Month award.  Each Student of the Month receives a monetary donation along with a certificate from the Van Wert Elks Lodge 1197 with the possibility to be named the Student of the Year.   Students are judged on the basis of multiple achievements – Volunteerism, Character, Leadership, Service, Citizenship and Scholastic.   

All of the Student of the Month winners are then judged for their performance and achievements for selection as the Student of the Year.   Kaylie received a monetary donation as well as a certificate.   She will now be competing for District Student of the Year against students from 12 other lodges within the district.
