RBC | The October students of the month for Rangely High School are Skylar Thacker and Trenton Files. Thank  you to John and Ammorette and the Kickin Ass (Mule) Ranch for supporting and sponsoring the recipients of this recognition.

Skylar Thacker is the daughter of Daryl and Jamie Thacker. Her future plans include attending college at Snow College in Utah, and majoring in exercise science. She has been very active in volleyball, basketball, soccer, student council, class officer, National Honor Society and the drama program. Outside she has also participated in 4-H, been an active member of her church and Young Women’s group. Thacker brings a lot of leadership to Rangely High School. She is a great leader and has shown this by being team a team captain for multiple sports, and for just being a great leader on and off the field. Within the school, Thacker likes to help people, no matter who they are. If you walk into the sixth grade math class, you are sure to find her tutoring students, helping them with their understanding of the materials, and working to assure they will be successful. It doesn’t matter what is going on in the school, you are sure to see Thacker around helping fellow classmates.

Trenton Files is a very hard working and helpful student. He plans to attend Colorado Mesa University and major in visual arts. As of right now, he is trying to determine if he wants to become an art teacher, or if he wants to focus on digital design and enter into the marketing field. Files has played an integral role on the football team, basketball team, baseball team, has been active in FFA and is willing to help in any organization in the school. Throughout these sports, he has also had the opportunity to be a great community leader to our younger kids by working with the pee wee football and basketball programs. This year Files is working one of his class hours as an aide for the office. He is always willing to jump right in and help with anything that needs to be done. He has run errands, delivered mail across the district, and helps us in the office by answering phones and delivering messages. Files is the student that makes any and all situations fun and light-hearted. He can bring a smile to anything that he is part of.

Again, thanks and congratulations to Skylar Thacker and Trenton Files for being selected as the Rangely High School students of the month for October.
