Chatham eighth graders Skylar Rowe and Benjamin Halpin will each receive the Triple “C” Award, an award presented by Attorney General Eric Schneiderman’s office that recognizes the “Character, Courage and Commitment” of New York’s hard working students. Chatham Middle School nominated Skylar and Ben for the award because they have demonstrated Triple “C” qualities at school and in their communities. Both serve as Key Communicators for their school and are active National Junior Honor Society and Service Club members. Additionally, Skylar helps new students at her school feel comfortable, participates in Odyssey of the Mind and Art Club, and is Red Cross certified. Ben is on the soccer team, is an All-County band student, is in the Ski Club, and volunteers at the Claverack Library and Ghent Food Pantry.
Congratulations to Skylar and Ben, both great representatives of Chatham’s E2 spirit.
