The Janesville Lions Club is proud to present its Students of the Month for November 2019. The club honors two students from each of Janesville’s two public high schools during each month between October and May every school year.
During their month, the students attend our bi-monthly meetings and learn more about the Lions Club and our community service projects. Each student receives a certificate signed by the Lions Club president in honor of being selected as a Student of the Month.
The following information has been provided by the students and is presented using their words:
