At an Oct. 17 meeting at East Lake Woodlands Country Club, fifth-graders Brooke Schmerge and Sebastian Legg were recognized as Students of the Month by the Rotary Club of East Lake Sunrise.

Brooke is a student at Brooker Creek Elementary in Tarpon Springs. In her written nomination, homeroom teacher Bernadette Christian described Brooke as "a diligent student who puts forth her best effort throughout the day. She is very responsible and works hard to improve in all subject areas."

Christian went on to write that "Brooke gets along well with adults and her peers and goes out of her way to be helpful to them. She is a sweet young lady and is very caring of others. It is a genuine pleasure to work with Brooke daily."

Sebastian attends school at Cypress Woods Elementary in Palm Harbor. Nominating teachers Staci Kontodiakos and Paula Pearson noted that although new to the school, the fifth-grader is already showing significant signs of being a model student.

"He comes to school prepared and ready to learn," they wrote about Sebastian in their nomination. They further described him as "always first to the gathering area with his materials in hand. He's quick to participate and helps others when needed. Sebastian sets the standards of work ethics high. He continually turns in quality work in all subjects. He is eager to learn and proud of his many accomplishments. Sebastian is working towards being a leader in the classroom. He sets a good example for other students."

Each student received a personalized certificate.
