Dr. Matt Smith recognized Ian Buckman, a senior at Centralia High School, as the Student of the Month for October. Buckman said he was proud to be awarded this honor. His parents are Jennifer and Eric Buckman, and his sister is Quinn Buckman.
Mr. Scott Stone, FFA adviser, nominated Buckman for this award. “Ian is the captain of our trapshooting team, which qualified for the district shoot. He has consistently been our high scorer and team leader. He is a fine example of leadership,” said Stone.
Buckman is involved with the trapshooting team, who performed very well this year. Buckman said, “I felt proud of everyone on my team and all the effort we put into getting to districts.”
In the future, Buckman wants to become a hunting guide when he gets out of school. His advice to other students is “Enjoy the work that you put effort into.”
