Issue 21, Volume 18.

TEMECULA – The Temecula Valley Elks held their 16th annual middle school Student of the Year presentations recently at Van Avery Prep School. Forty-seven students were recognized from eight schools in the Temecula areas. Each middle school was asked to submit applications for three females and three males. Each application included a 300-word essay, describing why he or she should be selected as the Student of the Year from their school.  

A committee of Elks judged the applications according to their academic achievement, citizenship, involvement in school activities, and leadership activities. The top female and top male from each school received a gift card for Barnes & Noble in the amount of $50. All the candidates received a framed Certificate of Achievement from the Temecula Advertisement
