Congratulations to Sydney Lane, a 6th grader at Dover Middle School as she was awarded the Rotary Club of Dover’s November - Student of the Month.

Sydney is years above her age when it comes to and compassion. She is a strong and quiet leader. Sydney will befriend all and speak supportively to any person she comes in contact with. Sydney is always willing to go above and beyond and wears a smile 24/7. She has nothing but kind words to speak of someone and can always find the positive in a situation. Her compassion for animals and those less fortunate is unwavering. She always strives to do better and be a better person, which makes others want to as well. In past summers, Sydney has held bake sales and done lemonade stands to raise money to donate to the Cocheco Valley Humane Society.

This award is given to a DMS student that goes above and beyond to be kind and compassionate to others while focusing on projects within school or in the community. We love that we are able to recognize these students each month as we move forward in sharing “service above self”.
