The Garberville Rotary Club’s January student of the month is South Fork High School senior John Wilde, shown here with Rotarian Craig Parkinson and science teacher Leslie Yale. Both Yale and fellow teacher Marianne Lancaster agreed that Wilde was the best pick to receive the honor. Yale said he is a top student and excels in math and science of all kinds. Wild said, “I love my science teachers. They are great.” Wilde plans on attending college and would like to pursue astronomy. He was presented with a certificate and a $100 bill.
