NEW LONDON, N.H. — Superintendent Winfried Feneberg is pleased to announce Kearsarge Regional High School’s May student of the month.
Dylan Palmer, a senior from Newbury, was selected for the honor based on nominations from school staff.
“Dylan has a calm demeanor and is always eager to learn something new,” said Industrial Arts teacher Jesse Fenn. “He is open-minded and interested in learning the details about how things work.”
Palmer is an honor roll student at Kearsarge Regional High School, and is described by his teachers as a kind, quiet and empathetic young man who contributes positively to class and supports his peers. He is an avid freestyle skier and outdoor enthusiast, and in his Senior Project this year studied recycling old skis and the impact of ski waste.
“I was quite surprised to be nominated as student of the month, but I am also very appreciative of the fact that the staff and administration at KRHS chose me for this honor and wanted to acknowledge my growth as a student this year,” Palmer said.
Palmer said he feels he’s hit his stride at Kearsarge this year, and has greatly enjoyed several subjects in school. He plans to take a gap year next year.
“The most valuable part of my experience at Kearsarge has been learning that no matter what failures or challenges you may face in life, there will always be a light at the end of the tunnel and there will always be people that are more than willing to support you through difficult times,” Palmer said.
Kearsarge Regional High School’s Student on the Month program is sponsored by Tucker’s of New London.
