The Kiwanis Club of the Central Adirondacks has announced that the Student of the Month for October is Colin Criss. Colin is a senior at the Town of Webb School and the son of Doug and Barb Criss of Old Forge.
In 2007, the Kiwanis Club of the Central Adirondacks, with the cooperation of the Town of Webb School, initiated a recognition program for senior students at the school.
Each month from September to April the school administrators will select a Student of the Month. The student selected will receive $50 and with his/her parents are invited to a Kiwanis recognition event to make a brief presentation.
In May, the Kiwanis Scholarship Committee will select a Student of the Year who will receive $500 and with his or her parents be invited to a Kiwanis recognition event for the award presentation.
The Town of Webb Police Benevolent Association (PBA) will be partnering with Central Adirondack Kiwanis in the Student of the Year award.
The selection criteria for the Kiwanis Student of the Month are community service, academics, athletic involvement, student need and extra curricular activities.
