We are honored to announce our November 2017 Rotary student of the month, Paxton Moon. Paxton is another one of our wonderful, outstanding seniors at the greatest high school in the world. This fall she has been extremely busy filling out college and scholarship applications and working 30 hours a week, all while maintaining great grades in her running start classes. 

What makes Paxton stand out even more is her commitment to community service. She effortlessly weaves her love of helping others into her extremely busy schedule, logging well over 200 hours of community service during her high school career. 

Her dream is to go to law school and eventually become a Supreme Court judge. Paxton is already an amazing young woman and she is well on her way to an even more amazing future. Joining in this recognition was Yelm Walmart with a gift card, Olympia Federal Savings with a savings certificate and Paxton will also be honored at an upcoming Yelm City Council meeting by the city of Yelm government.
