ILMS kicks off student of the month program

Indian Lake Middle School has kicked off a new student of the month program, which was spearheaded by Co-Principal Gene Gooding to recognize hard-working students who set a good example for others.
“The staff wanted a way to honor kids who stand out and go above and beyond in academics, attitude and behavior,” Mr. Gooding said. 
The January students of the month are fifth-grader Cheyenne Hill, sixth-grader Ashlyn Shaner, seventh-grader Ethan Fulkerson and eighth-grader Dakota McKinnon. These students receive one free homework pass, a lunch line pass to the front of the line for one month, a free pizza from Cassano’s, and an ice cream treat at an end-of-the-year gathering.

HPWC celebrates 30 years, pupils give Christmas gifts to center


The Hi Point Women’s Center hosts a 30th Anniversary Celebration of Life event Thursday, Jan. 22, at the Bellefontaine First Church of God. 

Doors open at 6:30 p.m., with light refreshments available. The program begins at 7 p.m., and will reflect on the past three decades for the center and what’s in store for the future. 

In other Hi Point Women’s Center news, Calvary Christian School kindergarten students conducted a Christmas-time project, where they brought in items for mothers and infants being served by the center.

The items were gift wrapped and then delivered to the women’s center. The students donated the items instead of purchasing gifts for each other this year.
