Hi, my name is Emily Kelley and I am a sophomore at Middle Township High School. I am a resident of Cape May Court House and have attended Middle Township Public Schools since Pre-Kindergarten. Currently at MTHS I am a part of an extensive amount of sports and clubs. I play field hockey in the fall and lacrosse in the spring. During the winter season I participate in the school Musical. Over the course of the entire year, I play the flute in the band, am a member of Student Council and Key Club. I am also very involved in all activities regarding the Class of 2018 as I was the Secretary of my class this past school year and will be president of my class for the 2016-2017 school year. Regarding community service, in fifth grade I began helping out at my church’s food pantry and a few years later, I became a helper at Vacation Bible School. I also volunteer at the theater camp “Shore Productions” . In high school, I have volunteered for numerous events such as Toys for Tots, Caring for Kids and many others. On top of the work I do outside of the regular school day, I am also taking four honors classes and currently hold a 4.57 grade point average ranking me sixth in my class. Balancing all of these activities is not easy, but I believe that if you have a positive attitude and are passionate about something, anything can be done, no matter what the task. Throughout my years at Middle Township Pubic Schools, I have been introduced to so many extraordinary opportunities. Two years ago I was recognized for my hard work as “Eighth Grader of the year” of the Middle Township Middle School for the 2013-2014 school year and now being honored as the Mid-Jersey Cape Rotary Club Student of the Month for June 2016 is a huge accomplishment in itself. In March of 2016 I was able to take part in MTHS’s annual Red Cross Club Blood Drive and donated blood to the Red Cross Organization. I was also given the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to travel to France and Spain during Spring Break of 2016. In late June I will be traveling to Boston to attend the Congress of Future Medical Leaders where attendees will have an in-depth experience of what it is like to become/be a physician. I could not be more thankful for being honored as the Mid-Jersey Cape Rotary Club Student of the Month and am very appreciative of the teachers who nominated me for this award.
Hello, my name is Rob Giulian, and I am currently a sophomore at Middle Township High School. I am sixteen years old and reside in Stone Harbor. I am very honored to be the Mid-Jersey Cape Rotary’s May “Student of the Month”. I believe that hard work and a positive attitude will get you anywhere in life. Being selected for this award is a highlight of my work ethic. I am a three sport athlete running cross-country in the fall, playing basketball in the winter and playing tennis in the spring. On top of playing sports I am very involved in school as well as in my community. I am a proud member of Red Cross Club, Italian-American Club and Interact Club which the Rotary Club sponsors. At Middle Township High School, I serve in several leadership roles such as being the Class of 2018’s Vice President and a Student Council Elected Officer. In addition to playing sports and being involved in clubs, I work hard keep high grades. I currently hold a 4.3 GPA and am ranked 17th in the class. In June, I will travel to Monmouth University to attend a leadership conference as I was selected by the high school officials. In the community, I am heavily active in my church and town. At Our Savior Lutheran Church in Stone Harbor, I am a lector and a teacher at Summer Vacation Bible School. I am also very active in Stone Harbor as I always help with the Stone Harbor Fire Department’s Christmas, Easter and summer events. I am willing to dedicate my time, effort and energy to help others. I am always willing to give back to the community, and I especially try to be a role model for younger people. With determination, work ethic and the drive to help people, I believe that I can achieve anything in life. I am confident that I can overcome any challenges and achieve greatness. Thank you again for this great honor.
I am a sophomore at Middle Twp High school and am involved in numerous clubs and sports. I play field hockey and golf, and am a member of the Red Cross Club, Chess Club, and Key Club. This year was also my first year being involved with the school musical, as I was the Personal Assistant to our director. Budgeting my time with these activities and honors classes is not an easy feat. However with a positive attitude, I try my best to excel in everything I participate in without stressing myself out. For community service, I find ways I can donate my time and talents. I am an artist, and for this year's Spirit week I hand drew eight life sized astronauts for my classes’ hallway as well as drawing the characters for our Christmas door decorating contest. And fortunate enough, both contests were won. For future community service, I am prepared to contribute any time and effort I can. There is an upcoming art show coming up that is raising money for victims of drug abuse that I already have a painting made for and maybe another coming soon. I love art and being creative, helping others and being apart of the community in a positive way is just the motivation I need to keep doing what I’m doing. I am very thankful and appreciative for being honored for my hard work and my incredible teachers that recommended me for this.
