Are you or someone you know a “star student” in your community? The Pioneer wants YOU!

The Youth and Education page is looking to publish stories about unique students as part of its new “Student Spotlight” series, a weekly section which details the life and accomplishments of students in Mecosta and Osceola counties.

Qualities of students who belong in the “Spotlight” could include students with academic achievements, involvement in extra-curricular activities, an aptitude for being a “self-starter” with a goal-oriented focus or any other unique characteristics.

Submissions of all ages, grade levels and education are welcome.

Contact staff writer Elizabeth Badovinac at (231) 592-8361 or elizabeth@pioneergroup.com with suggestions or for more information.
