Crystal Howlett of Clermont Northeastern High School was honored as the October Student of the Month by the Batavia Rotary Club.
“When I asked our teams to think of a senior to be recognized as Student of the Month, Crystal’s bio was returned to me within ten minutes,” said John Eckert, CNE High School Principal. “This was a very high compliment.”
Howlett participates in numerous activities. She is a member of the National Honor Society, enjoys reading books for pleasure, and tutors a college student every Wednesday after school in a variety of subjects. Howlett is an ambassador in Girl Scouts, which is the highest leadership role in scouting. She has received the Bronze and Silver Awards in Girl Scouts and enjoys volunteering over 40 hours each summer with younger scouts at camp.
Influencing young minds is something Howlett looks forward to, as she leaves high school in May to pursue a degree in elementary education. She plans to attend the University of Cincinnati, Clermont College and transfer to UC Blue Ash to complete her degree.
“We feel Crystal is a true leader,” said Eckert. “She always strives to do her best and be the best person she can be.”
The Batavia Rotary Club recognizes one high school student from CNE Schools 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.”
The Batavia Rotary Club is comprised of a diverse group of community-minded members that work together to address various community and international needs, promoting peace and understanding throughout the world. Club meetings are held every Tuesday at 7:00 a.m. at the Hawk Building on Taylor Road, Clermont County Airport. Prospective new members and visiting Rotarians are always welcome.
