One student from each school building at Community Unit School District #7 represented their school and the district on Wednesday, March 15 at the annual recognition breakfast at Greenville College.
Earning the honors this year were Seth Hellman of Ben-Gil Elementary School, Sydney Bires of Gillespie Middle School and Zach Carr of Gillespie High School. Hellman is a fifth grader, Bires is an eighth grader and Carr is a senior. All three were chosen because they exemplify the qualities of model students.
Each student was accompanied to the breakfast with their parents and building principals. Hellman is the son of Abreena and Jerry Hellman, Bires is the daughter of Ann and John Bires and Carr is the son of Dana Skinner and Bob Carr.
