Mason High School senior Matt King was recognized as The Kiwanis Club of Mason's October Student of the Month. King was nominated by MHS science teacher Carol Lehman, and MHS sports medicine teacher Mark Sullivan. "Matt is a true student-athlete! He maintains a high GPA and is a leader on the basketball court. Matt exemplifies all the qualities of a student-athlete. He is goal oriented, possesses leadership, confidence, and commitment, is coachable, believes in teamwork and discipline, and is highly-motivated," shared Sullivan. "He always goes out of his way to say "hi" and is extremely polite, and will ask questions when needed.  His head basketball coach, Coach Richards, cannot speak more highly of Matt! He was their team captain last year and there is every indication that he will be team captain this year as well," added Sullivan. "Matt is an exemplary young man. He is truly a pleasure to teach on a daily basis. He is the first one to help others and is always willing to do the right thing, especially when no one is looking. He is the epitome of a student athlete and a leader both in and out of the classroom. He makes those around him better!" said Lehman. Along with being a four-year starter on the MHS basketball team, King co-lead's the school's student spirit section, the Black Hole. He hopes to continue to play basketball in college, and plans to study sports management. On October 20, the Kiwanis Club presented King with $100 and a certificate commemorating his achievement. King's parents Doug and Sharon, assistant principal Dion Reyes, and nominating teachers Lehman and Sullivan joined the Kiwanians in recognizing King's accomplishments. The Mason Kiwanis Club meets weekly at noon at the Houston Restaurant in Mason.
