Jesse Tobin and Will Newhouse were chosen by the Bonners Ferry High School faculty and administration as the Bonners Ferry Rotary Students of the Month for March 2011.

Jesse Tobin, the daughter of Kevin and Julia Tobin, has been involved in drama producations in various capacities thoughout her four years of high school. This fact is noted in her experiences in the community and the extra curricular activities she has pursued during high school. She indicated that last year's production of the musical, Aida, has been her proudest achievement. Jesse thought the production exceeded everyone's expectations of what a high school drama production could be and she was proud for herself and every cast and crew member that was involved in making the show happen.  Jesse plans to continue her education by "heading to San Francisco to a performing arts school" and "to become a performer and pursue what I love."  When asked why she should have been selected for Bonners Ferry Student of the Monthl, Jesse's reply was that "I always try to be the very best I can be, in every situation. I always try to use the mistakes I make as tools to help me become better, and to symphasize and not judge those around me. I just try to leave everywhere I go just a little bit better than it was before I came along."

Will Newhouse, the son of Dr. Chuck and Susan Newhouse, plans to continue his education 'probably' at the University of Idaho to pursue his career goal of becoming an animator/3-D modelor.  During high school, Will has been a member of the Pep and Jazz bands and as a senior, he joined the high school golf team.  Community activities have included scouting since the age of twelve and cub scouts before that.  He was also a member of 4-H (Roadrunners). Much to his surprise, his proudest achievements were being voted homecoming prince his junior year and also voted "best personality." He won at the high school talent show with his garage rock band in 2010 and expects to enter again this year.  He spent many summers performing labor on his Uncle's farm. He remembers one summer where there was a bad outbreak of timothy in the alfalfa crop "and I had to go and weed it out." When asked why he should have been selected for Bonners Ferry Rotary Student of the Month, Will's reply was that "I get good grades, do what my teachers ask of me, and I can hit a golf ball really far." 

Congratulations to Jesse and Will for the honor of becoming the Bonners Ferry Rotary Students of the Month for March.
