Jorge Rios, an 8th grader at Waynesville Middle School, was named the Student of the Month for April by the Rotary Club of Pulaski County.

Rios is a student-to-student volunteer who shows new students their class schedules and conducts building tours. He is member of the National Junior Honor Society, plays on the 8th grade football team, is a member of the wrestling team and serves as an office aid.

He regularly attends the Spanish Christian Lighthouse Church where he volunteers with their weekend clothing giveaways. He also assists with his church’s Harvest Party, held each October.
