NEW LONDON, N.H.– Superintendent Winfried Feneberg is pleased to announce Kearsarge Regional High School’s November student of the month.
Emelia Potter, a senior of New London, was selected as November student of the month after she was nominated by faculty for the honor.
“Emelia is a well rounded student and serves as a great example of someone who has pushed herself to try new things and explore her interests here at Kearsarge,” Superintendent Feneberg said. “She is known by her peers and teachers as a positive person, willing to take on challenges.”
Potter is an honor roll student, and is involved in extra curricular activities including the National Honor Society, Book Club, Jazz Band, Harvard Model UN and is also a member of the school’s track team. She is additionally a volunteer for the Big Buddies Program.
“I am so honored to be the student of the month for November,” Potter said. “The Kearsarge community has always been a supportive one and I am so lucky to have grown up here. I am so grateful for all of my time here at Kearsarge, from kindergarten at New London continuing on through my senior year.”
Last year, Potter was a recipient the Dartmouth Book Award, which is awarded to juniors in the top 10% of their classes with exemplary academics.
“Emelia stands out as a student because she challenges herself, perseveres and always strives to do her best, even during times of stress,” said Deborah Yacashin, an AP Biology teacher. “She is an all-around wonderful individual- she is always kind to everyone, is a hard worker, a great collaborator and always is helpful to other students.”
