ROSELLE, NJ - The Roselle Roselle-Park Rotary Club named Tamia Keyes, a student at Abraham Clark High School, as the Feb. “Student of the Month”.
She was honored on Tues. morning during the Rotary Club meeting at the Amalfe center in Roselle. While at the meeting, Keyes shared her knowledge and explained to Mayor Dansereau how to use Google Docs on her cell phone.
“I have had the privilege of working with this amazing young lady since she was a freshman here at Abraham Clark,” said Vanessa Mayor, the school’s counselor.
“Over the years and learning more about the story beneath the student surface we see everyday, I learned her fortitude, determination and outgoing nature sets her apart from her peers.”
Mayor went on to say, “Throughout the years, I have watched her grow and develop both academically and personally into a mature, dedicated and hard-working individual eager and ready for her endeavor onto and through her collegiate years. Tamia is an amazingly resilient young lady with life experiences, which speaks volumes of her ability to overcome adversity and undeniably strong mental and emotional inner-strength to rise above difficulties that would make many falter.”
Currently a member of the schools National Honor Society and Secretary of the student government for a second year term, Keyes hopes to attend East Stroudsburg University in the Fall of 2016 in pursuit of a career as a Social Worker.
