.- Pahrump Valley Gazette, Thursday, March 13, 1997 13 Students of the Month at Pahrump Valley High School Pahrump Valley High School would like to an- nounce the selection of Students of the Month for December 1196, January 1997, and February 1997. The criteria for choosing these students is based on several factors. Academics, citizenship, attendance, and extra-curricular activities are all considred. As our population has grown so has our number of choices. In the past, one student was chosen for each month of the school year. Due to our increasing en- rollment, more students have been selected and they will as a group, hold the honor as Student of the Month for a three month period. This three month period has found eight students to be eligible The freshmen class is represented by two young ladies. Abbey Hudson-Crist has a 94% average in 7 classes. She has a good attendance and citizenship record. Golf is her sport of choice. She is also in- volved in Key Club at the high school and volun- teers twice a week to work in the Key Care project at the middle school. Kathleen Pohlmeier is also a fresh- man selection with a "A" average in 7 classes. Her citizenship and attendance are good as well. She is the class president and is involved in athletics through the softball team. The freshmen class can be proud of these two fine representatives. The sophomore class has two nominees. Kathy Nagy and Crystal Ferro. Miss Nagy is new to PVHS but has made a good impression on her teachers. She maintains an 89% average in 7 subjects. She has been active in Theatre class and has competed in Foren- sics competitions at Southern Utah University at Cedar City, Utah. Crystal Ferro is another excellent student with a 92% average in a variety of difficult classes such as Chemistry and Honors English II. Her emphasis has been on maintaining her scholastic record She has a good citizenship and attendance record. It is good to see solid sophomores showing promise for the future. Two Junior boys are recognized this time for their excellent records. Jonathan Oikawa and Matt Wagner have been selected. Jonathan Oikawa has a solid 91% average in 6 subjects. He has a good record in atten- dance and citizenship. His extracurriculars revolve around sports expecially basketball and track. Matt Wagner is the owner of a 94% average in such diffi- cult subjects as Zoology and Geometry. He also has good marks in citizenship and attendance. Matt is a member of the Leadeship class and enjoys Baseball. Best wishes to these two excellent Junior class rep- resentative. The Senior class is proud to have two young men as its nominees this time. Wayne Morris and Daniel Hommel are the choices. Wayne is a solid "B" aver- age student. His citizenship and attendance are good. He is one of our seniors who is on a 4 class schedule because he has completed almost all of his gradua- tion classes. In the afternoons, Wayne is off-campus working so he does not have a lot of time for extracurriculars but we recognize the contribution that these students make to our student body as they prepare for the "World of Work". Daniel Hommel is a well-known senior student who is involved in many activities while keeping a 93% average in 7 solid classes. He is involved in many extracurriculars such as Yearbook, Drama, Student Council, and Eschange student programs. We thank these two super seniors for their contribution to our school. These eight standout students are to be congratu- lated on their selection as Students of the Month. Their positive contributions make Pahrump Valley High School a better place. submitted by John Kiley, Librarian Round Mountain boys win title In their third consecutive appearance in the state tournament, the Round Mountain Knights won the Class A Boss Championship over the Pahranagat Valley Panthers by .a score of 50-46.
