Ms. Celeste Vanfossen, daughter of Wes Vanfossen and Amy Zwick, was named the West Lafayette Rotary Student of the Month for May.
Celeste, a Ridgewood junior, has been very active in the various clubs which include the Foreign Language Club, STATS (Students Taking Action Through Service), prom committee, and Teen Institute. Her student government involvement includes student council, class president, president of the Foreign Language Club, and a member of the yearbook staff. She was a member of the volleyball and basketball teams during her first two years of high school.
Celeste was chosen to be one of the Ridgewood representatives for the 2016-17 Coshocton County Youth Leadership team.
She is currently employed at Raven's Glenn Winery, where she serves as hostess, table busser and food runner and is also employed at Wendy's as a crew member.
She named Cheyenne Vanfossen as contributing to her self-development. The experience that has given her the greatest satisfaction was when her community service/volunteer group built a butterfly garden at Salt Fork Lodge, as she knew people appreciated the hard work that was involved in developing the garden.
