At the Nov. 15 meeting of the Rotary Club of Westfield-Mayville, Nicolas Dohre of Brocton Central School, Jaclyn Doyle of Chautauqua Lake Central School, and Hailey Garske of Westfield Academy and Central School were given recognition as "Scholars of the Month."

These high school students, who were nominated by administrators and counselors of their school districts, and their parents were invited to attend a dinner meeting of this club's membership, which was held at The Parkview in Westfield. The three scholars were introduced by two Rotarians, Dan Smith and Luci Petrella. Summaries of each student's notable accomplishments were given. Then each of these outstanding students briefly stated their future college and career plans.

Nicolas Dohre, the son of Dirk and Katherina Dohre of Brocton, is in his senior year at Brocton Central School. Nick excels in his academic coursework, and has regularly achieved mastery level of the required NYS Regents Exams he has taken. During his junior year, he was selected to represent his school at Boys State, though he declined to participate so that he could attend his older sister's graduation ceremony. His older sister Angelina Dohre was also named as a Rotary Club "Scholar of the Month" when she attended high school.
