Fifth-graders Maggie Wroe from Safety Harbor Elementary and Victoria Brierley and Benjamin Rice from McMullen-Booth Elementary have been selected as Students of the Month by the Safety Harbor Kiwanis Club.

Maggie was selected by her teacher, Robert Ferguson, who based his decision on her good reputation, willingness to always help out and ability to step in and take on adult responsibilities. She was recognized as outstanding as a safety patrol member, helping and guiding younger students. Maggie is an honor student, a Countryside Cougar cheerleader and a student council representative. Charrie Moscardini, president-elect of the Safety Harbor Kiwanis Club, made the trophy presentation.

Victoria Brierley was recognized as an outstanding example of a hard working, talented student who strives for excellence in music and is equally talented in the art room. She inspires fellow students with her positive encouragement.

Benjamin Rice was recognized for consistently demonstrating a desire to go above and beyond expectations in his music studies. He leads by example to seek new opportunities for growth. A natural leader among his peers, Ben displays a positive attitude, quiet example and focused energy.

Both were selected by their teacher, Evelyn Moldal, and Safety Harbor Kiwanis Club president Claire Cousins presented trophies to the pair.
