Members of the Rotary Club of Pahoa Sunset recently honored Mary Smith as their “Student of the Month” for the Puna district. Smith is a graduating senior from Kua O Ka La School. She was selected by the school’s administrators because she exemplifies the school’s slogans “to love and have respect for one another.”
Rotary Club President Glen Calvert noted the service club honors students each month who demonstrate progress in their schoolwork. Schoolteachers and administrators select students of the month. Each student of the month receives a gift card and a certificate of recognition. Awards are presented each month at a club meeting.
The club meets at 6 p.m. each Tuesday at the Akebono Theater in Pahoa. The public is invited to attend.
