Local students honored on new Wall of Fame

Local students were honored on a new Wall of Fame at Lee’s Famous Recipe Chicken in Bellefontaine Tuesday evening.

The idea for this Wall of Fame came from Bellefontaine Police Chief Brandon Standley.

Chief Standley, along with the BPD, teamed up with Lee’s Chicken and V-Teck Communications to introduce the wall.

It will host up to six local Bellefontaine City School students and Calvary Christian students each quarter of the school year.

Each school was asked to select one student and provide a summary of why the student was chosen. Their photo and the summary now hang in the restaurant on the Wall of Fame.

They were each selected for their leadership, selfless service to others, and dedication to making the community better.

The inaugural class includes:

Jessilynn Cole, Bellefontaine Elementary

Owen Park, Bellefontaine Intermediate

Blake Loomis, Bellefontaine Middle

Julia Nelson, Bellefontaine High School

Benaiah Soma, Calvary Christian Middle

Jacob Palmer, Calvary Christian High

Lee’s Chicken offered all of the winners a 20-piece family meal.
