Mattapoisett — In February, Old Rochester Regional High School junior Destyn Miranda was chosen to be the Elks Student of the Month by Wareham Lodge No. 1548.
Criteria for selection includes a student's scholarship, citizenship, performing arts, fine arts, hobbies, athletics, church, school and community service, industry and farming.
Miranda has made tremendous strides over the last three years, according to school leaders. Over the past year, he joined the football team and has worked to improve himself.
