She attended the Dec. 20 meeting to receive her award. The Student of the Month Award is granted by the Rotary Club to Fairfield FHS and Maharishi School seniors for their achievements in the area of academic performance, extra-curricular activities and outstanding abilities to help others in school as well as within the community through service-oriented projects.
