Hiroshi Burriola is Helen M. Knight Elementary’s Student of the Month.

Hiroshi, the son of Rodrigo Burriola and Jenny Rosales, is a fifth-grade student in Mrs. Linda Grawet’s class.

School officials said that Hiroshi is one of those students who always tries his best, and doesn’t seem to get discouraged by things that are hard for him.

“He is a great example to other students,” they said. “He is kind and caring; he does more than what is expected of him; he is also funny and likes to enjoy himself.”

Hiroshi has a great attitude and is a hard worker, school officials said.

“We are lucky to have Hiroshi as one of our classmates,” they said. “Way to go, Hiroshi.”
