Katelyn Morehouse - September awardee
Katelyn Morehouse was selected by the faculty and staff of North Warren High School as an exemplary role model and leader among her peers. The daughter of Roberta and William Morehouse of Brant Lake, Katelyn was named September Student of the Month at the school.
Known for embracing a passion for math and science, Katelyn is a National Honor Society student.
However, she has notable character traits that go beyond academics.
One of her greatest attributes is her desire to help others, according to the school guidance counselors.
She is an integral member of the North Warren Students against Destructive Decisions organization, as well as the Interact Club. She is also a regular volunteer for the annual Community Thanksgiving Dinner, hosted by the school.
It was Katelyn's love of children and people that made her volunteer for the North Warren Aftercare Program held at the school.
Through her work in this venture, Katelyn helped develop a meaningful program that goes beyond basic childcare. In her role, Katelyn finds herself helping students to peacefully resolve disputes, complete homework, and spend time in the computer room playing math-based games that promote learning. In her work with the students, Katelyn provides enrichment opportunities, which supports her personal philosophy of always leaving something better than you found it, guidance counselor Michael Therio said.

The son of John and Nancy Bennett of Chestertown, Jeff is considered by the school guidance counselors as to be an exceptional role model, well-rounded in his character and activities, whether academic, athletic or artistic.
