Slone is Lions Student of the Month

CROSSVILLE — Stone Memorial High School senior Alena Slone has been declared “Student of the Month” for April 2014 by the Fairfield Glade Lions Club. SMHS Counselor Andrea Simmons selected Alena for the honor because of her grades and activities in and out of school.

Alena’s future ambition is to become a high school teacher or counselor and will be attending college this fall to get started. She is keeping youth leader of some kind as an option.

School activities for Alena include Advanced Choir and membership in FCA, DECA, FBLA and Renaissance clubs. In addition, she attends vacation Bible school, serves as a volunteer worker for her church youth group, helps distribute Thanksgiving food baskets, visits local nursing homes and does volunteer work for the Bread of Life. Hobbies include scrapbooking, bike riding, some photography/picture editing and singing while playing piano or guitar.   

Alena and her parents, Ronald and Debra Slone, will be invited to a special dinner for all 10 winners on April 21 to be formally honored. She will receive an engraved plaque showing her name and special month for “Student of the Month.” Parents, students and counselors will all be introduced to the Lion members present and pictures will be taken for a final story in the papers.

This marks the 11th year that students have been recognized by the FFG Lions for their accomplishments in high school. Ten students have been selected each year for the “Student of the Month” honor, so all in all there have been 110 young students who received this award.

“Currently, four students each from CCHS and SMHS along with two students from the Phoenix School are awarded each year,” commented Bob Cover, FFG chairman for the FFG Lions Club. Cover continued, “I wish there was some way we could follow up with these students to see what they have done with their lives. I am sure a lot has happened in these past 11 years and some have moved away. Maybe someday if I get a larger committee I’ll be able to locate some of them and get their interesting stories published in the local papers.”

The Fairfield Glade Lions Club has many interesting programs designed to help the adults and children in the community. They are presently reviewing needs of community organizations to see what areas the FFG Lions can help make this a better place to live.

The Fairfield Glade Lions Club has the largest membership of all Lions Clubs in the state of Tennessee. Dinner meeting are held the third Monday of each month (with a few exceptions) at the Druid Hills Country Club Legends Restaurant. Meetings start at 6 p.m. and are normally over by 8 p.m.

New members are always welcome and encouraged to join and help a lot of people in Cumberland County. Please call President Marty Smith at 484-6784 and make arrangements to attend a meeting. The first visit is at no cost to you and you may meet some friends or neighbors who are already members. Special reduced memberships are available for husband and wife joining together. You determine where you can help and how often.
