Every month a boy and a girl from Ray Miller Elementary School (Kirksville) are selected "Student of the Month". These students are chosen by their teachers for their outstanding endeavors, and standing out through showing respect, responsibility, practicing safety, kindness, and cooperativeness. Through this process one name from each grade is drawn from the chosen students, in which they are able to ride to school in a fire truck. If a child lives in town the fire truck picks them up at home and takes them to school. If the child lives in the county, the parent delivers the child to the Kirksville Fire Department and the truck takes them to school from there. These children also receive a special gift from the Fire Department.
