The Steamboat Springs Rotary Club named Steamboat Springs High School senior Travis Mouffe its November student of the month. Mouffe's father, Frank, and his social studies teacher, Deirdre Boyd, attended the presentation.
Mouffe is a member of the school's Honor Council, National Honor Society and an academic letter recipient for two straight years. He also has been a starter on the high school lacrosse team for the past four years.
"Travis is an exceptional student with an effusive personality, a great sense of humor and the ability to lead by example while always making other students feel comfortable and confident," Boyd said.
"Travis' accomplishments will undoubtedly prepare him for a great future. He is an excellent choice for our student of the month award," Rotary Club President Chandler Coyle said.
