London High School Senior Elena Richardson is the September 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.
Richardson begins her senior year as two-year member of the National Honor Society and holds the No. 1 highest class rank with a 4.4 grade-point average. She has participated in cross-country the past three years, serving as captain two years.
Additional, she has been participating for three years in the spring musical cast and two years in the fall play.
Richardson lists AP calculus as her favorite class. She said teacher Tim Coudret inspires her.
“Mr. Coudret encourages students to find something important to say, and say it,” she said.
Coudret said, “Elena’s talents are eclipsed only by her work ethic and integrity. She is a rare student who serves as a role model and inspiration for adults, as well as her peers.”
Richardson plans to attend Brigham Young University to major in neuroscience and minor in Spanish, and hopes to serve an 18-month mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter-day Saints.
She is the daughter of Dr. Steven and Mary Richardson.
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 goodwill and peace.
