The latest two outstanding students at North Haven High School, selected by the staff as the Students of the Month, were recognized by the Rotary Club at the Holiday Inn recently.
Doron Rose, a talented trumpet player and varsity swimmer who is also a CAPT Scholar and Future Problem Solver, was chosen for November.
In a humble fashion, Rose seemed to heap thanks and praise on everyone else, rather than focus on himself. Administrative Intern Christopher McLaughlin described him as “gifted and involved in a rigorous academic schedule” that will include a course at Yale in the spring, adding that his volunteer work with autistic adults at Benhaven, as well as helping out at the VA Hospital, have resulted in over 200 community service hours.
The other tenth grader told her attentive audience that she was “extremely obliged and humbled” by her award.
December’s pick, Kayla DeLuca, participates in field hockey, lacrosse, and Student Council, as well as the Diversity Team, Tri-M Music Honor Society, and the Interact Club. McLaughlin said that she is “a multi-talented student with a warm and caring personality” and indicated that this Student Council President has attended several beneficial leadership conferences, yet has managed to earn 109 service hours, sometimes while sharing her talented voice in the Select Choir, but more often while working for Habitat for Humanity.
