Sasha Halstead has been named the Grand County Middle School BEACON Student of the Month. Halstead, an eighth-grader, is the granddaughter of Ron and Cookie Halstead. She has attended the BEACON after-school program since seventh grade.

BEACON program tutors said Halstead was chosen for the award because she “works hard and is proud of what she accomplishes.”

“She sets goals, helps her friends, doesn’t procrastinate her work and is always ‘on top of it’. Sasha is a great example and role model to those around her and her hard work is definitely paying off this year at the middle school.”

Halstead will receive a t-shirt and certificate as well as a Golden Ticket to the Willy Wonk-themed Chocolate Lover’s Fling on Feb. 8.

“Sasha is excited about her reward and, in true Sasha fashion, eagerly asked if she could bring a friend with her to the Willy Wonka party being held at the [Moab Arts and Recreation Center],” BEACON tutors said.
