December Rotary Seniors of the Month
By Raechelle Sandoval '18
Although the November Rotary Seniors of the month, Raechelle Sandoval and Kyle Yazzie, chose to not be interviewed, the December Rotary Seniors of the Month agreed. These seniors are Kristopher Lee, and Jessica Ramirez.
Where do you plan to go to school?
Ramirez: I would like to continue my education at Fort Lewis which I have already been accepted to with a great running scholarship and such.
Lee: I want to attend Eastern New Mexico University.
What are your plans after high school?
Ramirez: My plans after high school are to continue to strive for greater things in both my running career and education career. My plan is to become a veterinarian, but to also experience the world with nothing but positivity. I also plan on living in Colorado for a couple of years and to come back to help the community because Gallup is Home.
Lee: I plan on going off to college for four years while attempting to survive on my own. Fingers crossed.
How does it feel to be Rotary Senior of the Month?
Ramirez: Being Rotary Senior of the Month was a great experience. Honestly, I never thought I was gonna be picked for it and knowing I was made my family, my friends, and myself happy.
Lee: I’m rather hard on myself, so to be recognized as Rotary Senior of the Month feels nice. Congrats to others who have been recognized as well.
Are there any other comments you would like to make?
Lee: Don’t drink and drive, don’t eat Tide Pods, and don’t play on your freakin’ phone at the movie theatre.
Congratulations to Jessica and Kristopher, as well as all other seniors who have recieved Senior of the Month.

Library Bingo (or Book Bingo) began last October as a way to get GHS students interested in reading. The game is set up in a similar manner to regular bingo, except that the student is playing against him/herself. Spaces on the playing card describe the type of book to be read. For example, “a book written the year you were born” or “a book written by a female author”. Once the book is read, the player makes a book report to Mr. O and the student earns an incentive, such as a coupon for chips at the Bengal Store. The objective is to cover enough squares to make horizontal, vertical or diagonal line on the board. Once a bingo line has been made, the student can enter his/her name in the drawing for the grand prize, which will be an IPad.
The game is a great way for students to set a goal and push themselves to achieve it. It also encourages students to push their own boundaries by reading different types of books they haven’t read before. Also, some lucky reader will win an IPad!
