Last Friday morning (May 5), during the Sunbury/Big Walnut Area Chamber of Commerce quarterly breakfast meeting at NorthStar Golf Club, the chamber honored four Big Walnut High School students, one Columbus State Community College student, and one Delaware Area Career Center student who have demonstrated outstanding achievement in the combined areas of scholarship, leadership, and service.

Present for the occasion representing Big Walnut were Big Walnut Local School District Superintendent Angie Pollock, Big Walnut High School Principal Andy Jados, and Big Walnut High School guidance counselors Jeanne Collett and Meghan Vituccio.

Jados said the annual chamber student recognition breakfast is one of the highlights of the school year.

“Every administrator loves to be a part of recognizing students for their achievements,” Jados said. “The end of the school year is hectic, but 100 percent of our high school staff was involved in selecting these students.”

Recognized were Big Walnut High School students Victoria Buxton, Trisha Wilhelm, Macie Kircsmar, and Jacob Troyer.

Also recognized were Tyler Pennington, a Big Walnut student attending the Delaware Area Career Center full-time; and Columbus State Community College student Ryan Duncan.

Vituccio said Victoria Buxton is a hard-working and excellent student.

“Every one of her teachers said Victoria is always friendly, and a pleasure to have in class,” Vituccio said.

Vituccio said Macie Kircsmar epitomizes the concept of Eagle Strong.

“Macie is not only academically strong, she is respectful to everyone,” Vituccio said.

Collett said Trisha Wilhelm is the epitome of what it means to be a Big Walnut Golden Eagle.

“As a member of the high school student council, Trisha always goes above and beyond what is expected of her,” Collett said. “In every task, she always follows through.”

Collett and Vituccio both agreed that Jacob Troyer comes to school each day with a positive attitude.

“When other students have a need, Jacob jumps in to help,” Collett said. “He sets a good example for other students to follow, he’s an excellent role model.”

Tyler Pennington, a senior in the DACC Landscape & Turfgrass Management program, is a member of the DACC FFA and volunteers at NorthGate Church. In the fall Pennington plans to attend The Ohio State University’s Agricultural Technical Institute’s Landscape and Horticultural program.
