Elks Honor the May Students of the Month


Every month, the Elks honor those students who show strong leadership, academic achievement and are involved in numerous activities. They set the example for other to follow and illustrate the promise of the young generation for the community and our nation. The students and their families are treated a free diner at the lodge and recognized for their efforts.

This month’s winners from Lamar Middle School were: Maddie Montoya and Sonny Gonzales. Maddie likes to play softball and hang out with her friends. She wants to study Chemical Engineering at CU Boulder. Sonny loves art and playing music. He wants to study both at Western State University.

Frida is active in soccer, volleyball, basketball, cheerleading and student council. She has a 3.4 GPA and wants to become a Home Interior Designer.
