The North Branford Rotary Club is pleased to present its Student of the Month Award to Marcello Avallone of the North Branford High School (NBHS).  Marcello is an empathetic, diligent, and self-driven student, who takes pride in doing well at school and does not hesitate to seek out the support services that he deserves while at the same time challenging himself academically.  Marcello has the additional advantage of a very loving and supportive family as well. Marcello takes his family responsibilities very seriously, often caring for his younger sibling. At the same time he holds down a part time job at the local supermarket while maintaining his academic work load at school. At school, he continues to be a role model for other students through his work ethic and daily interactions with both adults and peers. He has taken a very active role in NBHS’s greenhouse program. The supervisor has come to rely on him when completing projects for his hands-on work as well as his knowledge of the greenhouse program. As a result, he has discovered the importance of teamwork.  When involved in group work in the classroom, Marcello takes on the role as a team leader. Others look up to him for his knowledge and direction. Marcello has a way of making everyone feel important; accepting everyone for their differences. Marcello is particularly sensitive to the needs of some of our more impaired students. He goes out of his way to make them feel a part of our everyday activities and school community. Marcello has always been his “own person,” quietly leaving his mark on the world, especially with those that are closest to him and are lucky enough to call him friend. Spending any time with Marcello is a pleasure. Marcello exemplifies the North Branford School District’s mission of a “caring community.”  For these reasons, the NBHS is proud to recommend Marcello Avallone, as Student of the Month for recognition by the North Branford Rotary Club.  Congratulations, Marcello!!
 
 
The North Branford Rotary Club is pleased to present its Student of the Month Award to Brian McKee of the North Branford High School (NBHS).  Brian is a sophomore, who is currently taking PE 10 and Health 10 courses.  Brian is a polite, humble and cooperative student, who has an amazing work ethic and always goes above and beyond in all that he does in both classes. Brian motivates his classmates and gets them involved in cooperative games and sports.  He is a competitive player but is respectful of his classmates at the same time; he plays for the good of his team and not his own gain.  Brian is a quiet leader and is subtle.  His classmates respect him and so do his teachers.  For these reasons, the NBHS is proud to recommend Brian McKee, as Student of the Month for recognition by the North Branford Rotary Club.  Congratulations, Brian!!
