Chris Yaggi of Clermont Northeastern High School was honored as the March Student of the Month by the Batavia Rotary Club.
His academic record, school participation, and service to the community were taken into consideration in choosing him for this award.
“Chris is a very intelligent young man,” said John Eckert, CNE High School Principal. “He has participated in many school groups at CNE and is a role model for younger students.”
Yaggi is a member of the National Honor Society. He has participated in the Science Challenge and was named Academic Quiz Team Player of the Year. Although school work and extracurricular activities keep him busy, Yaggi still finds time to volunteer in the community. He has been involved with Matthew 25: Ministries in Blue Ash for many years and enjoys helping others through this very worthwhile cause.
After graduation, Yaggi plans to attend Xavier University and major in the field of research. He also plans to continue his volunteer work wherever he can provide help to others.
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 while promoting peace and understanding throughout the world.
Meetings are held every Tuesday at 7 a.m. at the Hawk Building on Taylor Road, Clermont County Airport.
