Rotary hosts Annual RCHS Top Ten Banquet

Rotarians, RCHS Top Ten students and their parents gathered Wednesday evening for the Rushville Rotary Club’s Top Ten Banquet to honor and celebrate the academic accomplishments of these notable students. Rush County Schools Superientendent and Rotarian Dr. John Willliams welcomed guests with words that have become all to familiar to families during his robo calls to families on the many snow days this year saying, “This is Dr. John Williams and the purpose of my call this evening...” Williams set the fun and celebratory tone for an evening that lifted up the achievements of the top 10 students by grade point average in each of the four classes at RCHS.

Mayor and Rotarian Mike Pavey introduced the featured speaker Rushville City Councilman Brian Sheehan who brought his own Top 10 list of lessons for life to the guests.

Students in the Top Ten by grade point average at RCHS include:

Seniors: Matthew Fogg, Abbey Gulde, Sarah Katherine Harpring, Nathaniel Grant Hoeing, Nicole Hoeing, Carrington Houser, Kevin Richard McMinn, Jessica Caroline Miller, Brian Wagler and Jill Ann Yager.

Juniors: L.J. Conrad, Patrick John Duffy, Jordan Fritz, Sarah Innis, Dylan Michael Marlatt, Chase Steven Marsden, Amy Maria Neuman, Lauryn Jean Payne, Haley Jean Riddell and Jayce Ullah-Blocks.

Sophomores: Spencer Brown, Samantha Harrison, Audrey Nichole Land, Noah Nigh, Leah Grace Noe, Emilee Anne Rogers, Brevin Runnebohm, Laura L. Smith, Alicia Kathryn Troyer and Kristine Rose Wagler.

Freshmen: Karyn Banks, Payton Mckenzie Brower, Kayla Lee Fogg, Grace Elizabeth Miller, Erin (Cara) Moore, Arielle Jane Atienza Ordas, Gracey Jo Owens, Frances Marie Percell, Brayton Michael Schultz and Keith Aaron Yager.

Throughout the dinner provided by the staff at Rushville Elementary Schools and program, speakers emphasized Rotary’s Four Way Test: Is it the truth? Is it fair to all concerned? Will it build good will? Will it be beneficial to all concerned? The Four Way Test can be applied to life situations when setting one’s course for actions and intentions. Rotarians also stressed their hope that as these students move forward in their lives, that Rushville have a place in their futures as a place to work and raise families some day. Dr. Williams urged students to, “Remember Rushville...Where it’s always a great day to be a lion.”
