The London Rotary Club is pleased to honor senior Darian Huff as London High School’s January Student of the Month.
Students of the month are selected by school administrators based on their academic and extracurricular achievement and positive character.
Huff has a 4.04 grade point average and is ranked 14th in his class. His favorite class is a College Credit Plus class in English. He is a three-year Merit Honor Roll student and serves as president of the National Honor Society.
Huff has played football for four years, earning all-CBC second-team defense honors and earning the Scholarship, Ethics and Integrity Award the past three years. He is a four-year member of the wrestling team, winning the CBC Sportsmanship Award and the Raider Heart Award.
When asked to name a school staff person who inspires him, Huff named Spanish teacher Janelle Wilson.
“Profe Wilson does so much more than teach Spanish. She takes the time to grow us as adults and teach us skills we will use later in life,” he said.
About Huff, Wilson said, “Darian is an exceptional student not only inside the classroom but outside, as well. I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know Darian over the past three years and having him in class in both Spanish 2 and 4. I’ve watched him grow and progress academically and personally. He always goes above and beyond to help his peers and teachers and has a heart of gold. I know whatever Darian chooses to do in the future he will always give his all, and he will be successful because of it.”
After graduation, Huff hopes to attend college to further his education in theology and psychology. He also plans to continue his wrestling career. He is the son of Greg and Andee Huff of London.
The London Rotary Club has a proud history dating back to 1929. It is a member of Rotary International, a volunteer organization of 1.2 million business and professional leaders united worldwide to provide humanitarian service and help build good will and peace.
