At the meeting on November 16th, Superintendent of Schools, Don Bartling introduced Michael Decker and Taylor Dinning as Bonners Ferry High School Rotary Students of the Month for November.

Michael Decker is the son of Mike Decker and Anna Vandyke and is currently involved in school theater, being cast in two shows and currently working on a third role. He is proud of the fact that he is able to get along with people, an important skill in today's environment. His plans upon graduation are to attend San Francisco State University with a career goal of locating a job in film editing.

Taylor Dinning, the daughter of Rick and Chris Dinning, currently holds two elective offices, president of both her senior class and the foreign language society. Throughout her four years of high school, she has been involved in numerous activities including Junior Miss, the Idaho Drug Free Youth program, student council, and the performing arts.

Some of her proudest achievements are being selected as a People to People Student Ambassador to the British Isles, her Junior Miss Scholarship, and participation in the Academic Decathlon (and the first freshman to medal at the State level for the Bonners Ferry High School).  She also has extensive experience in community service having participated in a food drive for the local food bank, serving as a volunteer at Silverwood's Night of Stars, when the park caters to the handicapped and their families and participation in Special Olympics fund raisers.

Taylor maintains a 4.0 GPA and is dual-enrolled at North Idaho College to earn college level credit. Her plans are to attend college and receive a degree in clothing, textiles and design. Her career goals are to work in the fashion industry and own her own store. 

Congratulations to both of these outstanding students for their recognition as Rotary Students of the Month having demonstrated the characteristics of the Rotary Club's "4-Way Test."
