Burbank student recognized by Rotary

BURBANK VILLAGE -- Burbank High School student Jessica Corwin on

Tuesday was named Student of the Month for December by the Burbank

Noon Rotary Club.


Jessica, 17, was recognized for her outstanding community service,

leadership qualities and academic achievements, said Jeff Green, the

club’s chairman of youth services.

The organization awarded the senior with a $25 gift certificate


from Target and a certificate from the club during its weekly meeting

at the Burbank Family YMCA.

Jessica is the second local student to receive the award since the

Rotary Club partnered with the Burbank Unified School District to

start the program last month. The club names a different middle or

high school student each month after principals of the featured

schools choose the recipients.
