Bedford Middle School pupils honored

Six students recently were recognized with Bison Awards for January and February at the Bedford Middle School. To be eligible for the award, a student must be “caught” doing a random act of kindness. Twenty-two students were included in the drawing. Each winner received a $25 gift card to Walmart from the school resource officer, Joe Kovel. Pictured are, front, from left, seventh grader Zoey Ellsworth, seventh grader Kyler Weyant and sixth grader Rebecca Steele; and back: sixth grader Ryen Cobak, eighth grader Nathaniel Ritchey, eighth grader Kayden Ritchey and Kovel.
