For the third year as a Port Jefferson Middle School student, eighth-grader Ibuki Iwasaki was the recipient of the Port Jefferson Rotary Club’s Most Motivated Student of the Month Award. She attended the Rotary luncheon on April 8, accompanied by her social studies teacher, Dr. Tara Sladek-Maharg, and Port Jefferson Middle School Principal Antonio Santana, who both offered words of praise.
“Not only is Ibuki an outstanding student, but she is also as a loyal friend to fellow students,” said Santana. “She is incredibly motivated and responsible.”
Ibuki, a violinist in the school orchestra, is looking forward to traveling to Japan this summer to visit with family and friends.
