October’s Ram of the Month is senior Caesar Paguirigan. He was selected for his grades and effort in school activities.

Paguirigan said that his selection was completely unexpected. “I was shocked,” he said. “I had no idea I was going to be picked as Ram of the Month until they actually told me.”

Paguirigan said he was especially surprised since he started off the year with “less-than-stellar” grades.

“I was really stressed about my grades early in the year, but this quarter I brought them up,”
Paguirigan said. “It’s good to be recognized. It totally came out of the blue but it still feels pretty nice.”

Each month, teachers may nominate students for this award. Nominees need to have a minimum 2.0 GPA, no failing grades, and a teacher write up. Then, a committee of teachers select the Ram of the Month.

Senior Caesar Paguirigan is October’s Ram of the Month. Busy with activities that include Hawaii SkillsUSA, NHS, leadership, and paddling, Paguirigan does not lose sight of school as he listens attentively to one of his Career Day guest speakers.
