The Student of the Month for March is Adam Tronchin, a Grade
11 student at General Amherst High School.
Adam is a model of student engagement. He has been an
essential part of General Amherst’s Student Council for the past three years as
a Grade Rep, Tech Liaison and Eco Rep. Adam recently revived General Amherst’s
EcoTeam, securing a teacher sponsor and actively recruiting new members. The
new team has done classroom checks and given grades for eco-friendliness. The
group has also run a Sweater Day, encouraging students to dress warmly so the
temperature in the school could be turned down to conserve electricity.
To promote the team, Adam inspired Student Council to host an eco-themed pep
rally. While he has been working to get the team off the ground, Adam is
also part of the Tech Team, Radio Room, curling team, tennis team and has been
on the honour roll since Grade 9.
Also active in the greater Amherstburg community, Adam is
one of the founding members of Amherstburg’s community Robotics Team and has
been Team Captain for the past two years. He generously shares his expertise
with a local elementary school, mentoring students in building, designing and
programming robots for competitions. Adam also volunteers his time coaching a
youth hockey team during the year and in the summer while maintaining a
part-time job at Point-West Golf Course.
Adam is an overall excellent student, individual and leader
and is an outstanding role model for school and community engagement.
Congratulations Adam on being selected by Student Senate as
the Student of the Month for March.
