This month’s National Renaissance Student of the Month is Autumn Sneath from Central Mountain Middle School, PA. Nominator Christina Onuskanich writes:
Autumn is a 7th grade leadership student who is always willing to help make her school a better place. Throughout the year, Autumn has volunteered to host assemblies and special events. Autumn assisted with our school’s fall sports pep rally, she was the commentator for our Fun Friday volleyball matches, and she was the announcer for the Veterans Day Assembly. Autumn also attended the Jostens Renaissance Leadership Conference this fall and has been working diligently to put her ideas into action. She has helped plan various spirit day events and school-wide activities. Autumn is constantly asking her teachers what she can do to help them and then she gets the job done. In class, Autumn is always looking for ways to celebrate her peers and offer support to anyone who may need it. When a teacher was having a challenging week, Autumn took it upon herself to put together a self-care gift for the teacher. When a younger student was unsure about attending her first middle school dance, Autumn put together a special invitation and presented it to the student during homeroom. The smiles and giggles of excitement were exactly what her friend needed! Autumn‘s kindness and selflessness along with her determination to further develop her leadership skills are what make her the perfect candidate for National Student of the Month!
