For many years now the Soldotna Chamber of Commerce has sponsored a Student of the Month program to recognize outstanding students at Soldotna Middle, SoHi, and Skyview. Students are invited to a regular luncheon meeting to receive their certificates and talk about their educational experiences with lunch sponsored by Bob Sizemore. With the flurry of issues during the local and national elections in October and November however, the Chamber got behind in their Student of the Month program, so last week the students selected by their teachers for October and November were honored and given the entire meeting to tell of their accomplishments and future aspirations.

Being honored from Soldotna Middle School was 7th grader Melanie Smith for October and 8th grader Elisha Holliers for November accompanied by teacher Sharon Moock. “I like to stay on task in my classes,” said Melanie. “I always do my best and give it my all,” commented Elisha. Brittany Andree a senior was SoHi’s student of the month for October and senior Chet Syverson was selected for November and they were accompanied by Principal Todd Syverson. At Skyview High School senior Alex Wes was chosen for October and senior Molly Lamborn was November’s student of the month and they were accompanied by Randy Neil.
