Homeroom teachers at St. Michael-Albertville High School are always on the lookout for exceptional eleventh-grade students to recommend for STMA’s Rotary Student of the Month program. Local Rotarians select students each month of the school year who embody their motto of “service above self,” with the focus on students in their junior year so the honor can be included in college applications.
For November, the local Rotary club has given this distinction to Peter Macaluso, Katelyn Jossart and Sarah Lenz.
Peter is the son of Angelo and Deanna Macaluso of St. Michael. Peter has earned his Eagle Scout, volunteers locally, has completed confirmation and was previously the awarded Student of the Month as an eighth grader. Peter is also involved in bowling. After high school Peter plans on attending a four-year college for computer science engineering.
Katelyn is the daughter of Chad and Stacy Jossart of St. Michael. She was on the honor rolls in middle school and is currently a freshmen mentor at the high school. She also holds an after-school job. Katelyn’s future plans include going to college for journalism or law enforcement.
Sarah is the daughter of Dellis and Marianne Lenz of Hanover. Sarah has received her Silver Award in Girl Scouts and the Riverhawk Award in hockey. Sarah is involved in tennis, hockey, the art club, Business Professionals of America, Supermileage, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, the Manufacturing Club, Saint Paul’s youth group and is a Sunday School teacher. Her future plans are to study communications visual arts after high school.
“Rotary is very proud to recognize Peter, Katelyn and Sarah as students of the month,” said Christine Konz, STMA Rotary Club President. “They have demonstrated a commitment to academic excellence and athletics and represent the service about self-ideals of Rotary. We wish them a successful future.”
