The Bellefontaine Police Department, Lee’s Famous Recipe Chicken, and 98.3 WPKO & 107.3 The Drive unveiled the newest Wall of Fame members Tuesday night.

Four students from Bellefontaine City Schools and two students from Calvary Christian were honored during the ceremony at the restaurant.

The inductees were chosen by staff members for their leadership, selfless service to others, and dedication to making our community better.

Each school was asked to select one student and provide a summary of why the student was chosen.

Their photo and summary are featured in the Wall of Fame display in the restaurant.

The inductees include:

Tilly Jervis, Bellefontaine Elementary School, Kindergartener

Bellefontaine Elementary is thrilled to honor kindergarten student Tilly Jervis as our Lee's Wall of Fame winner for the fourth quarter. Tilly is an exceptional student and person! She comes in every morning with a smile on her face and is eager to learn. Her positive attitude is infectious and helps create a welcoming learning environment for her peers. She is passionate about the work she completes, shows her creativity, and always gives her best effort. Tilly is a great friend to all and is kind and respectful to others. She is always willing to lend a helping hand to her classmates or any staff member. She is a true pleasure to have at BES and definitely deserving of this award.

Gunnar Stratton, Bellefontaine Intermediate School, 4th-grader

Gunnar is a friend to all students and is always exhibiting a positive attitude. He shows kindness to all, including students who are not always the nicest to him. He is caring toward others and is friendly to adults as well as other students. Gunnar maintains exceptional grades and has good attendance. He is never in the office for inappropriate behaviors and is very respectful to adults. Gunnar truly is a gentleman and a leader in kindness at the BIS!

Elsie Welch, Bellefontaine Middle School, 6th-grader

Elsie is an amazing young lady. She is always willing to help others without being asked. She sees someone in need and steps in to help in a genuine way. The students look up to her and appreciate her. Not only is she kindhearted towards her peers and adults, she is a hard worker in the classroom as well. Her responsible work ethic and focus on her academics make her the perfect candidate for this award.

Skybree Knotts, Bellefontaine High School, 12th-grader

Skybree Knotts is a Chieftain Leader through and through. She demonstrates Chieftain Pride with everything she does both in and out of the classroom. Skybree shows respect to every person she comes in contact with, and treats everyone with genuine kindness. Skybree is not just academically talented, but also participates in many extracurricular activities in our music department, is the president of FCCLA, and is a member of the school bowling team. She is the definition of a leader, and we are beyond grateful to have her be a part of Chieftain Nation. We wish her the best of luck as she transitions into her adult life and cannot wait to see what she accomplishes.

Avery McCarty, Calvary Christian Middle School, 7th-grader

Avery is quick to volunteer whenever something needs done. She shows initiative by often being the first one to take out trash after lunch, and she encourages her classmates to do the same. Not only does she volunteer, but if she is asked to do something, she always responds with a smile and fulfills her obligations cheerfully.

Lincoln Roell, Calvary Christian High School, 10th-grader

Lincoln exemplifies the definition of integrity. He continues to do what's right even when no one is looking. He is a positive leader even in the face of adversity and even if it means being the only one to stand up for what is right. Due to Lincoln's humble nature, he can sometimes be overlooked for recognition. He is a hard worker and strives to do his best.

Family members and school administrators attended the ceremony, which was streamed live on peakofohiotv.com.
