Hunter Meadors of Batavia High School was chosen as the October Student of the Month by the Batavia Rotary Club.
“There aren’t enough words to express what Hunter’s teachers say about him,” said Felicia Grooms, Batavia High School Guidance Counselor. “He is in the top five percent of his class while holding an internship and participating in community activities.”
Meadors currently carries over a 4.0 grade point average and follows a rigorous course load including both AP and honors level classes. He has participated in many extracurricular activities include playing varsity football and baseball. Because of his outstanding athletic skills, Meadors has earned multiple scholar athlete awards.
He has served as both Chapter President and Fundraising Chair of the Business Professionals of America organization over the past two years. During his time in office, he has helped the high school raise more than $20,000 for various local and national charities. In addition, Meadors has just been nominated for the American Career and Technical Education Association National Business Education Student of the Year. In his spare time, Meadors enjoys spending time with family and friends.
“As if Hunter isn’t already busy enough, he also carries an internship and works at Sears, said Grooms. “He plans to attend the University of Tennessee after graduation, majoring in Engineering.”
The Batavia Rotary Club recognizes one high school student from Batavia Schools during the first Rotary meeting of each month throughout the regular school year. Students are nominated for this award for their school work and service to their community in keeping with the Rotary motto, “Service Above Self.”
