May 5, 2016
Westfield Republican

Students of the Month at Chautauqua Lake Central School, honored for February achievements, are Andrew Laurita, Emily Brown, Ryan Wilson, Hannah Roush, Rachel Shiolend, and Rebecca Henry. The student recognition program honors students in grades 7 through 12 whose classroom performance, attitude toward learning, work ethic and extra-curricular activities set them apart.

Senior Andrew Joseph-Carl Laurita is the son of Wendy and James Marlinski of Jamestown and Alan Laurita of Bemus Point. History and science are the subjects he enjoys the most, especially physics, human anatomy, and economics. Andrew has been an active member of the High School Bowl academic team since his sophomore year. He was inducted into the National Honor Society as a junior and has been on the honor roll every year of his high school career. Outside of school, Andrew enjoys swimming, walking with his dogs, drawing, playing board games, and running. The person in history he most admires is Anwar Sadat of Egypt, because "he went above the religious restrictions he faced as a Muslim and made peace with Israel at the Camp David Accord." If Andrew could be another person for a day, he would choose Dr. Kathleen Bass of Buffalo, because "I would love the opportunity to save people's lives and bring eternal joy to many families, including my own." After graduation, Andrew plans to pursue a PhD in pharmacy and "make a difference for someone, anyone, who has a dire medical need."

Emily Elizabeth Brown, daughter of Thad and Leslie Brown of Ripley, is a junior who says psychology/sociology is her favorite subject. Emily has competed on the swim team since her freshman year, participated in Ski Club, and last fall was inducted into the National Honor Society. She has also been honored as a Scholar Athlete annually since her freshman year. Outside of school, Emily enjoys snowboarding. She admires Queen Elizabeth I as a great historical figure, because not only did she rule Britain, but she was one of its first queens. If she could be another person for a day, Emily would be "a world traveler because I would be able to experience different cultures and see how different people live." She plans to study early childhood development in college.

He admires a lot of people in history, but most recently National Football League quarterback Peyton Manning "for never giving up, no matter what was in his way." When asked what person he would like to be for a day, Ryan said, "It would be one of my teachers because it would be a chance to experience the challenge of teaching, which in my opinion is one of the most underappreciated professions." His plans a career in engineering.

Anthony, because "she was an important figure in the women's voting rights movement and helped women gain more equality."

Hannah looks forward to a career as an orthodontist.

Eighth grader Rachel Marie Shioleno is the daughter of Matt and Tammie Shioleno of Ripley and Danielle Raynor of North East, Pennsylvania. English is her favorite subject this year. Rachel enjoys playing volleyball, basketball and softball. She admires Alice Paul for "her bravery and commitment to women's rights."
