Last year Trevor was Crook County High School’s first student of the month. According to English teacher Julie Swinehart says, “Trevor is a person who isn’t afraid of hard work and helping others.” Ann Kasberger, guidance counselor, says that Trevor has a passion for math and science and “although I am not certain what career Trevor will ultimately choose, I am certain that he will give it 100%…also certain that the community in which he establishes himself will be better off because he is there…” Please help us in celebrating this outstanding Central Oregon student.
