Moab Charter School’s October Student of the Month is Gavin Vink.

He is the son of Shauna and Dan Vink.

Gavin was chosen because he noticed that a classmate of his was struggling to get to school on time. He asked if he could go to his friend’s house to help him. With permission, Gavin walked to his friend’s home and got both of them to school on time.

“We honor Gavin for this selfless act of true friendship,” Moab Charter School Interim Director Carrie Ann Marinelli said.

Gavin’s favorite thing about MCS is that it is small; his favorite subject is history.

Outside of the school day, Gavin’s hobbies include Civil Air Patrol in Grand Junction, Colorado; and drawing.
