Each month, the Rotary Club of Bensalem’s Student of the Month program recognizes the unique achievements of two students in the Bensalem School District. To be considered for the honor, students must possess a combination of high academic standards, community involvement and extracurricular activities.
On April 15, the Rotary honored Amanda Redhouse and Bryan Reheil as Students of the Month at their weekly luncheon meeting held at Michael’s Restaurant on Street Road. Amanda and Bryan, both students at Bensalem High School, were introduced to those in attendance by Bensalem High School’s 12th Grade Assistant Principal, Lenore Hope.
Amanda was nominated for student of the month by her teachers in the music program. She is actively involved in band, orchestra and indoor color guard. Her musical ventures were inspired by her late grandfather, whom Amanda credits with giving her the courage to be herself and work hard at everything she does. Academically, Amanda is interested in pursuing an education in the physical sciences or business. She has been accepted at five colleges, but is still deciding between attending York College or Arcadia University. In her free time, Amanda enjoys babysitting and honing her photography skills.
Bryan was nominated for student of the month by his JROTC instructors at Bensalem High School. He has displayed exemplary leadership skills in JROTC and was chosen as the Pennsylvania Sons of the American Revolution Outstanding JROTC Cadet for 2012-2013. Bryan has applied to the Virginia Military Institute and the Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland and hopes to pursue a naval career as a Surface Warfare Officer. In his free time, Bryan enjoys volunteering in the 2nd grade CCD program at St. Ephrem Church, playing soccer for Hulmeville Soccer Club and working at CVS.
Amanda and Bryan are just two of the many incredible students that have been honored over the years by the Rotary Club of Bensalem and they look forward to recognizing the amazing achievements of many students to come.
