Student of the Month: Jacob Osteros
The Student of the Month for September is Jacob Osteros. One of his teacher's, Mrs. Hagan, commented "Jacob is such a delight to have in class. He is always willing to work on any assignment without complaint and he has even assisted other students in class. For instance, when we were doing a lab in class the other day, there was one girl, with a disability, who did not have a partner. Jacob volunteered to work with her and then assisted her on the lab. I was very touched by his compassion and kindness. These are characteristics not often witnessed of this age. What a great husband he will be one day! "
