OAKLAND — Messalonskee High School recently announced its November Students of the Month, according to a news release from the high school

Senior Lauren Mercier started providing academic support for special education students when she was in third grade, and now, almost a decade later, she is still going strong in this respect.

That’s an exceptional quality, and thus it comes as no surprise that Mercier stood on the Performing Arts Center stage recently as one of four students recognized as a November Student of the Month.

“Although 40 hours of community service is the high school requirement, this young lady goes above and beyond what is expected of her,” Messalonskee Principal Paula Callan said of Mercier, according to the release.

But, then, going above and beyond what is expected could be said of the other three Students of the Month recipients as well. Junior Autumn Littlefield, sophomore Molly Glueck and freshman Taryn Drolet, each exhibit this quality.

Littlefield, the junior winner, has a deep commitment to the field hockey program which is one reason she earned a scholarship to play the sport at Boston College. She also is a caring student, a quality she displayed in becoming a member of the school’s anti-harassment committee, according to the release.

Glueck, meanwhile, displays a deep commitment to the choral and band program by getting to the high school long before classes begin to help set up chairs in a music class with more than 100 students, according to the release.

Drolet, an active participant in all his classes, also recently took on a leadership role when he helped a substitute teacher by teaming with other classmates to review assignments with the rest of the class, according to the release.

Once again, a Messalonskee student earned honors at Mid-Maine Technical Center. Dan Miller was named a Student of the Month at the technical school for his efforts in the precision machining program
