West Branch Board Honors Students
In the second quarter of the school year, the West Branch Board of Education recognized Liam Granger, Lucas Herold, and Olivia Greeneisen.
Liam Granger, a fourth-grade student at West Branch Intermediate School, was the board’s honored student for November. Teachers recognize him as a role model - leading, helping, participating, and being conscientious in his work. Liam is active outside the classroom, devoting time to serve his church and engaging in sports and other outdoor activities.
“Liam is the kind of kid that exhibits a strong sense of duty, maturity, and responsibility at a young age,” says West Branch Intermediate Principal Fritz Schlueter.
Lucas Herold, a seventh-grader at West Branch Middle School, was the board’s honored student for December. His remarkable personality, academic and musical skills, and creativity are noted by teachers throughout his three years at the Middle School. Lucas brings a positive approach, inquisitive nature, and kind spirit to the classroom. His musical talents earned a position in the District 5 Ohio Music Education Association Middle School honors band this fall, placing fourth chair out of 16 players from three counties.
“Lucas is a creative, inquisitive student who is always engaged in designing his projects,” says his STEM teacher, Mrs. Ginocchi. “His problem-solving skills are a great attribute when he works with his group. Lucas's hard work is an asset in his STEM class!”
Olivia Greeneisen, a West Branch sophomore, was the board’s honored student for January. She is active both in and out of school while maintaining a strong academic standing. Olivia is involved in Altman Ambassadors, a member of the color guard squad, an office aide, and works part-time at Boneshakers in Salem, Ohio.
“Olivia’s pleasant demeanor, work ethic, and kind heart do not go unnoticed by our students and staff here at the high school,” says West Branch High School Assistant Principal Penny DeShields.
