Buckeye names December Students of the Month

Loretta Royer


Buckeye Career Center has named the December Student of the Month recipients. Two high school students were chosen for the honor for demonstrating BCC’s core values. One adult education student also was chosen.

One of the Student of the Month recipients is law enforcement senior Loretta Royer, a student attending BCC from Claymont. She works for the Harcatus Tri- County YES Program, is a former volunteer at NewPointe Church, and played softball and cheered for three years for Claymont. She enjoys walking, riding her bike, going to church and spending time with her daughter, Paisley.

Royer was nominated by academic instructor Samantha Hillyer. “Loretta has been excelling with remote learning. She completes her assignments immediately. She is also respectful and personable,” Hillyer said.

Upon graduation Royer hopes to find a full-time job while she awaits her chance at becoming a police officer, once she turns 21 and completes law enforcement academy training and certification. She is the daughter of Roger and Cheryl Royer.

The second high school Student of the Month is natural resources senior Roger Naylor, who attends BCC from Indian Valley and is currently employed by Beitzel’s Farm and Meat Processing. He is a four-year member of the T-County Critters 4-H club and BCC FFA chapter and plays baseball at Indian Valley.

Outside of school Naylor enjoys hunting, fishing, umpiring Little League Baseball and chicken farming. He was nominated by his former language arts instructor Aimee Brown and current language arts instructor Shannon Wigfield.

“He is such a great student. He does his work before the deadline, participates in class discussions and always has interesting points,” Wigfield said.

Upon graduation Naylor plans to continue his current career as a butcher. He is the son of Steve and Anne Kohler.

The December Adult Education Student of the Month is medical assisting student Jade Armstrong of Gnadenhutten. She is a 2020 graduate of Indian Valley and the BCC high school medical assisting program. She is employed at The Inn at Northwood Village and is a volunteer softball coach.

Upon graduation Armstrong hopes to continue her schooling and obtain a certification in gerontology. She was nominated by her instructor Christy Bennett.

“Jade is a hard worker and is always prepared for class and willing to help her classmates. At work she recently saved a patient from choking,” Bennett said.

The three were recognized virtually by the Buckeye Career Center Board of Education at the board’s December meeting.
