Month received recognition at the Sublette

County School District No. 1 board of trustees

meeting conducted in Bondurant on Oct.

Skyline Academy honored junior Jax Jacobson

as Student of the Month for September.

Holli Redmond, a teacher at Skyline,

nominated Jacobson for exhibiting the trait

of respect on a daily basis.

Jacobson “consistently has shown respect

to faculty, other students and himself,” Redmond

wrote to the board.

Jacobson sets a “positive example” for

other students at Skyline Academy by “participating

in class discussions, using work time

wisely and having a positive attitude toward

gaining an education,” Redmond continued.

“I appreciate the maturity level at which

Jacobson conducts his conversations and actions,”

Redmond said. “(Jacobson) is a tremendous

asset to Skyline Academy.”

Pinedale Middle School history teacher

Mitch Irrgang nominated eighth-grader Wyatt

Griffin as Student of the Month for modeling

the character trait of responsibility.

Griffin approaches academics, relationships

with his peers, teachers and other adults

with a positive attitude and responsibility, Irrgang

wrote to the board.

Griffin shows an “eagerness to excel in

academics,” and is always “proactive and

responsible in letting teachers know” of absences

and “staying ahead of interruptions in

class time,” Irrgang continued.

Griffin approaches group projects with

“enthusiasm” and is willing to work with all

students, a “sign of his maturity,” Irrgang

said. Griffin displays self-confidence to take

on challenges that others his age may shy

away from.

“Griffin is a student who impresses me

with his jack-of-all-trades personality, who

treats people with respect and honesty,”

Irrgang wrote. “When Griffin says he is

going to do something, he does it, and ...

demonstrates to those around him that responsibility

is a habit he has practiced for

many years now.”
