Elks honor Student of the Month for scholarship, service with a smile
The Elks of Wareham Lodge No. 1548 have awarded Sophomore Faith Oliver, of Mattapoisett, Student of the Month for December.
Staff members say that Oliver goes out of her way to help others and works hard in all of her classes. Oliver has been volunteering in the Postsecondary Transition Class for the last two years, where she is a wonderful role model to the Transition Students.
She supports the students with technology needs, daily living skills, functional academic goals, and vocational training. Oliver is willing to lend a helping hand where ever she is needed in the classroom and always brings a great attitude and a smile to class each and every day.
Her academic teachers report that Oliver is an excellent student that has really come out of her shell this year. She is tolerant of everyone in the classroom, can help explain things to classmates around her, has a fantastic sense of humor and incredible work ethic.
"She has an old soul and her wisdom is apparent in her behavior as well as her humor," reports one of her teachers.
