A dozen Washington Elementary students were selected as the school's October Wellness Students for the Our Washington Leaders (OWL) program.

Counselor Michelle Hofstetter said: "OWLs are wise to being leaders. Being a leader means being responsible, respectful, and trustworthy. It means setting a positive example for others. Leaders try their hardest and look for ways to guide and lead others."
