CLARK, NJ -  Erin Heaning has been named the October 2018 Student of the Month at Arthur L. Johnson High School. According to many, Erin may be the busiest senior at ALJ. One of Erin’s major keys to success and achieving this competitive title, is taking one day at a time and always putting in one hundred percent.

Erin’s top three choices for the schools she wants to attend are University of Pennsylvania, Princeton, and Duke. She plans on studying either biomedical engineering or chemical/biological engineering. Erin wants to manufacture artificial organs “so I can help thousands of people at a time as opposed to a doctor who can only help one at a time”. 

She is involved in virtually every club and organization, including volleyball, Blue Cru, National Honor Society, Science Honor Society, Key Club, ALJ Student Council, Crusader News, Crusader Athletic Leadership Council, and Science League.

Outside of school, Erin has earned her Silver award for Girl Scouts.  “I built a planter cart for the local retirement home and I’ve reached the ambassador status,” said Erin about her experience. She is also a member of youth group at St. Agnes and she’s a certified volunteer for the Sharing Network. Finally, every spring Erin volunteers to help out with the recreation center youth volleyball programs.

In her spare time, she likes to spend time with friends, binge-watch YouTube, and get ahead on school work. Erin will miss the personal connections she has made with friends and teachers the most while at college.
