BRIDGEWATER, NJ - Each week, two students at Bridgewater-Raritan High School will be honored as students of the week.

Students are chosen by teachers and staff in the high school.

The students of the week for the week of Jan. 15 are:

  • Jason Gardner - (nominated by Averye Dandeo and Daphne Ruben) Jason comes to class with a smile and a positive attitude each day. He is friendly, kind and considerate to all of his peers. He always does his best on all of his assignments and is the first to assist his classmates when needed. Overall, Jason is a pleasure to have in class.
  • Larissa Vernak - (nominated by Chris Levin) Earlier this week, the students in my class were working on a project, when I accidentally spilled my water bottle all over my desk. As I struggled to make sure the water didn't start ruining papers and the computer, Larissa jumped up and immediately started helping me move papers and clean up the spill without being asked. Larissa has always been a great student in my class each day, but her kind and helpful actions were greatly appreciated.

Editors Note - Every week we will publish the BRHS Students of the Week. Congratulations to all those students recognized.
