Four Lemont High School students received accolades earlier this month for their outstanding work and dedication to community.
Joe Paloian, Lauren Pustulka, Abby Roselieb and Spenser Baileywere honored as Students of the Month at the March 18 meeting of the Lemont High School District 210 Board of Education.
Only 32 students are honored as Students of the Month from October to May. Students may only be selected once during their time at Lemont High School.
Each month, Brad Grcevic of Edward Jones Investments in Lemont, makes a donation to a charity chosen by the four honorees. In a presentation to the school board, students announced Susan G. Komen for the Cure as this month's recipient.
