The Woodbridge Rotary Club recently honored Amity High School senior Julia Potter as student of the Month for May. “Ambitious, genuine and strong are just a few words that describe Julia Potter. Ever since her freshman year, Julia has proven herself to be a conscientious student who isn’t afraid of a challenge,” stated John Mezzo a Counselor at Amity High School who nominated Julia.
Academically, Julia has enrolled in some of the most challenging courses offered at Amity. She has a strong interest in social justice and politics and hopes to earn a law degree so she can advocate and help those less fortunate. Presently, she is serving as an intern in Congressman Rosa DeLauro’s office. Julia is president and founder of Exploring Justice Club and is a member in both the National Honor Society and National Spanish Honor Society.
Ms. Potter’s extra-curricular activities include playing soccer where she devotes a lot of time to the sport. Julia also served as a Link Leader as part of Link Crew which is an orientation program for incoming freshman, plays the trumpet and has been a member of the Amity High School band for the past four years.
Other volunteer activities that Julia Potter participates in include volunteering at Griffin Hospital and the Relay for Life fundraiser.
Orange resident Julia Potter will be attending George Washington University in the fall.
Each month, the Woodbridge Rotary Club partners with Solun Tapas Restaurant to honor an Amity High School student. Rotarian Dr. Guy Stella presented Julia Potter with a certificate of recognition.
