Each month the Thayer and Mammoth Spring Rotary Club along with Couch, Koshkonong, Mammoth Spring, and Thayer High Schools all select a student of the month from each respective school. These students must show model behavior in the classroom and community, as well as high scholastic performance.

November’s student of the month, Garrett Blum, is a sophomore at Thayer High School. His parents are Richard and Rhonda Blum. He has one younger sister in 3rd grade, Abby.

Garrett is active in Quiz Bowl, FBLA, Beta, FCA, Spanish, and also participates in baseball.

“Garrett has done an amazing job both in the classroom and in Quiz Bowl. He finished second individually at the Salem tournament and he was fourth in the state last year in class 2,” said Mr. Adrick Miller, sponsor.

Baseball Coach Lucas Brown said, “Garrett is just a great kid all around – both in the classroom and on the baseball field. He puts his head down and works hard, and he is a great teammate to the other boys on the team.”

Mrs. Barbara McGinness, THS math teacher, commented, ” Garrett is one of the most gifted and diverse students that I have ever taught. Through self-study he has taught himself geometry and Algebra II, asking a few questions as he progressed through the course. Garrett is also knowledgeable in a variety of subjects. Ask his fellow Quiz Bowl members! ‘Student of the Month’ is a well-deserved award. Congratulations, Garrett!”
