London High School Senior Austin Wilt is the April London Rotary Student of the Month.
Students are selected by London High School administration based on the following criteria: academic and extracurricular achievement and positive character. Wilt has a 4.23 grade-point average and is ranked first in his class. He says his favorite class is AP Chemistry II.
Wilt is a four-year member of the concert and pep band. He is this year’s president of FFA, a member for four years and also a past treasurer. He has served on student council for four years as its treasurer and is a three year member of National Honor Society.
Wilt was asked to name a school staff person who has served as an inspiration and he stated, “Ms. Snyder, my Agriculture Education teacher, because she devotes so much time to helping students succeed.”
Dana Snyder was asked to provide a statement about her student.
“I have been blessed for the past four years to have been Austin’s agricultural education teacher and FFA Advisor. Since day one as a freshman, Austin has always amazed me with his commitment to the agriculture industry. In my 20 years of teaching I have never had a student who is more engaged in current agricultural issues and willing to tell the story of agriculture to our community.”
After graduation he plans to attend Texas A & M University for Petroleum Engineering. He is the son of Dennis and Lisa Wilt of London.
The London Rotary Club has a proud history dating back to 1929. It is a member of Rotary International; a volunteer organization of 1.2 million business and professional leaders united worldwide to provide humanitarian service and help build good will and peace.
