On Oct. 18, the Twin Valley Rotary Club was proud to honor Twin Valley High School seniors Joseph Storz and Jessica Yount as their students of the month. The presentation was made at their weekly meeting. Joseph and Jessica were honored for their participation in extra-curricular activities and outstanding academic achievement.
Joseph Storz is a student who is driven to succeed inside and outside of the classroom. He has taken and excelled in multiple AP classes in his high school career, and even has won the AP Scholar award. Joseph is motivated to learn as much as possible, while challenging himself by taking a wide variety of different classes at the same time. He has been on the Distinguished Honor Roll since middle school, and seeks to carry out that honor through the rest of his high school career.
Joseph is not only an academic achiever, but serves a tremendous role in the Twin Valley community. He is a three sport athlete, excelling on the high school varsity golf, basketball, and baseball teams. Within the school, he is the president of TVHS’s Recycling Club and Spanish Honors Society. He also is an active member of TVHS’s branch of the National Honors Society, and heavily involved in MiniThon club, helping to fight pediatric cancer. Aside from making a difference in the school and the community, he is also a member of the Health Occupations Students of America, as he seeks to pursue his interest in the career of physical therapy.
Jessica Yount is a senior at Twin Valley high school. She is one of the captains on the tennis team, is on the leadership committee for Mini THON, and is a part of both National Honor Society as well as Spanish Honor Society. She has also been a part of the lacrosse team, student council, and Leo club, but devotes most her time to Mini THON and tennis. In Mini THON she is the overall manager of the Harlem Wizards game which raised over $8,600 last year. She has internship during this semester to dedicate her time to the event. In school she enjoys Spanish and English class, as well as any art classes.
While outside of school she works at Weaver’s Orchard and is involved with her church. In her free times she loves kayaking, hiking and hanging out with her friends. Jess has focused on applying to Lock Haven University, and Lancaster Bible College, being her top two choices. She would like to get her masters in early education, while minoring in Spanish. She would then like to take her education to an inner city and impact young children’s lives along with teaching Spanish as a first language for students.
