Kade Andrews, a Senior at Flushing High School, was named the November Student of the Month by the Rotary Club of Flushing. 
He is a 3 sport athlete, playing Football, Basketball, and running track, and is involved in Varsity Club where he just returned from Marion Crouse School, helping them celebrate Homecoming.  Kade also served on the Student Advisory Board in his junior year, and assisted in Colt’s Squad with Officer Jim Hough, the Flushing Community Schools Liaison Officer.  He has also served as a mentor at Seymour Elementary School, and volunteers to read through “Leaders are Readers” on his own time at Seymour Elementary. He has also been known to stay over and join the kids at recess.  When Flushing High School played H.H. Dow High School of Midland in the recent high school football playoffs, Kade did his warm-up at Seymour Elementary School, playing all-time QB for the kids.  Kevin Foltz, Assistant Principal at Flushing High School and Flushing Rotary member, who presented Kade the award, stated that  Kade is an all-around role model for kids in the Flushing Schools.
Outside of school, he is an active member of the Flushing Community Church of the Nazarene where he and his family participate in community service events. His best memory from this was delivering cookies to less fortunate kids in an old ice cream truck.  Kade is also dual-enrolled at Mott Community College, taking some of his undergraduate college course requirements while still in high school.  This is in addition to taking 10 credits of coursework at the High School,  and 1 Advanced Placement course (for college credit).
Kade is currently weighing his options regarding college, possibly looking to play college football after this great season at Flushing High School. He plans to study Marketing or Business Management in college.   
The Rotary Club of Flushing is proud to recognize Kade Andrews as its November 2018 Student of the Month.  A $100 donation will be made to a Flushing High School student organization of his choice in his honor.
