The Woodbridge Rotary Club recently honored Amity High School senior Christina Emmerthal as Student of the Month for November. Each month, the Woodbridge Rotary Club and Woodbridge Social Restaurant partner to honor an Amity High School Student on a monthly basis. Christina was nominated by her School Counselor Gerilyn Ferguson who stated that she is known for her integrity, empathy, and diligent work ethic. While she has placed an emphasis on her academic success, Christina has also made tremendous personal growth through her extracurricular involvement. Her academic record has resulted in a standing in the top 15% of a competitive senior class. Her academic success has resulted in membership in both the National Honor Society and National Spanish Honor Society.
While she has placed an emphasis on her academic success, Christina has also made tremendous personal growth through her extracurricular involvement. Christina’s extracurricular activities involve her in both the school and community. In her sophomore year she joined JSA, Junior Statesmen of America. She has since become increasingly more involved in the club, attending conventions in New York City and Boston. Her passion for government and political science has grown as a result of her involvement in the club.
Christina is currently the President of Teen Teaching. In this club, students visit the J.S. Martinez School in New Haven where they are placed in a classroom to assist the teacher and make connections with students. Other activities include being a four-year member of the Field Hockey program and being a pianist.
