(Editor's note: This is the last of a four-day listing of Bowling Green middle school students who were honored.)
The Bowling Green Exchange Club again is recognizing area youth for the good things they've accomplished this past year, in and out of the classroom.
The Exchange Club's Positive Start program asks teachers to honor students who have done something positive. Students must live in the Bowling Green School District and be in grades 7 or 8. The purpose is to honor students who have achieved "to the best of their abilities" to improve the school and community settings.
A luncheon will be held Tuesday at Stone Ridge Golf Club to honor all 59 students who represent Bowling Green Middle School, St. Aloysius Catholic School and Bowling Green Christian Academy.
The following students are among those being honored:
Elle Ross, a BGMS seventh-grader, is a member of the cheerleading team and also participates in band and choir. She has a 4.0 gpa and three times has been awarded Student of the Month. Elle is a demonstrator at Julie's Dance Studio, has earned VIP dance awards as well as first place at her first dance completion. At home she helps take care of her little brother.

Supplying alcohol to minors is illegal PDF Print E-mail

Agents with the Ohio Department of Public Safety's (ODPS) Ohio Investigative Unit are commending those parents and teens that make the wise and mature decision not to participate in illegal and dangerous behavior, such as providing alcohol to minors and consuming underage.
"As a parent of two adult children, I can tell you this time in your child's life is one of the most memorable for you and for them," said ODPS Director John Born. "As a retired member of the Ohio State Highway Patrol, I can also tell you this time of celebration can easily turn into a time of tragedy because of the increased occurrences of underage drinking that may tempt your child at after-prom parties and graduation celebrations."
To help foster good choices, parents and teens need to understand Ohio's underage drinking laws.
•    It is illegal to provide a place for your child and his/her friends to drink in a "safe" environment. In fact, parents may not provide alcohol to children who are under 21, who are not their own, even in their own home with the other parents' permission. Those convicted of providing alcohol to a person under 21 years of age face maximum sentences of six months in jail and/or a $1,000 fine.
