October's Hornet Heroes Named

Submitted Article


Each month Big Lake High School recognizes students from each grade who have demonstrated traits that align with the Hornet Way.  The Hornet Way emphasizes respect, honesty, kindness, responsibility and fairness.  These are students who are leading by example, promoting good choices, or who are committing random acts of kindness.


This month's students recognized include: Natalia Springsteen, Cory Mallon, Keon McGarvey, Ryan Murnane, Kelli Poffenberger, Ashley Chouinard and Preston Hesley.


These students will receive small tokens of appreciation for being a positive student leader. In addition, students will be acknowledged on the morning announcements, the following student assembly, parents will be notified, and a display case will feature the students’ school pictures.


Congratulations Natalia, Cory, Keon, Ryan, Kelli, Ashley and Preston!
