VAN WERT - Van Wert Lodge No. 1197, Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks have released the names of the recipients of the Students/Volunteers of the Month for October, November and December that were awarded to students from Crestview High School.
Students are nominated by their high schools to receive this award. Each Student/Volunteer of the Month receives a monetary donation along with a certificate from the Van Wert Elks Lodge No. 1197 with the possibility to be named the Student/Volunteer of the Year. Many students do community work which is a requirement to graduate. This time is definitely considered; but more weight is given to students who give their "unrequired" time to their community. Besides the community service, the students are scored on their work experience, honors and awards, leadership, extracurricular activates, and an essay.
