WEST LAFAYETTE -- Alexis Nicole Perkins, daughter of Michael and Darla Perkins, was named the Rotary Student of the Month for October 2013.

Alexis, a Ridgewood junior, lists concert choir for three years, art and foreign language club as some of her school activities. She is a participant in the Ridgewood track program where she does the hurdles.

She listed her mother as one who has contributed much to her self-development.

The experience that has given her the greatest satisfaction is her babysitting for a child this past summer.

After high school graduation, Alexis plans to attend college, perhaps The Ohio State University.
