This month the Hackensack Elks began a student of the month program honoring students from the 5ive/6ix School and Middle School. Hackensack Elk Regina DiPasqua in cooperation with Hackensack Middle School Anti Bullying Specialist Heather Coleman formed a student selection committee in both schools. These student committees nominated their peers and selected a male and female student of the month from each school.
This program is notable as youths are selected not by their teachers but by their peers for displaying leadership in both their schools and communities. Congratulations to the following honorees:
5ive/6ix Female Student of the Month: Yasmeen Johnson
5ive/6ix Male Student of the Month: Carlos Sanchez
Middle School Female Student of the Month: Nasimeh Salem
Middle School Male Student of the Month: James Saleh
