    For our second month of recognizing Students of the Month, staff selected Trevor and Jackson.

    At announcements this morning, Julie Deden talked about Trevor’s willingness to work hard under sleepshades, as well as always being willing to help out. Last month he volunteered to clear a stretch of sidewalk of snow and ice along S. Prince St.

    Students of the Month receive a gift card to Romancing the Bean, the coffee shop at the Littleton Downtown Station, housed in the historic Denver & Rio Grande railroad terminal.
