Mason High School senior Amy Satterthwaite was recognized as The Kiwanis Club of Mason's August Student of the Month. Satterthwaite was nominated by MHS teacher Debbie Gentene.
"I am nominating Amy Satterthwaite for the Kiwanis Student of the Month because Amy is a selfless worker who spent the entire summer meeting customer needs as a part of the Comet Zone," shared Gentene. "Amy does not get paid, nor has she received credit for the work she has done. She is an example of that person who always goes above and beyond because it is the right thing to do. She chose to not close the student-run business during the summer, but instead followed up on emails and order requests because she felt a commitment to the community. She is a busy young lady, but she never once acted as if any of the Comet Zone/MHS business was an intrusion to her summer. She is a quiet leader who could easily go unrecognized, but once you meet her, she will easily make one feel like the only/most important person in the room. That's how selfless and committed she is!"
Along with her work in the Comet Zone, Sattherthwaite is an accomplished member of the MHS Cross Country team, and involved in SIBS. She hopes to study occupational therapy at the University of Alabama, the University of Georgia or The Ohio State University.
On August 25, the Kiwanis Club presented Satterthwaite with $50 and a certificate commemorating her achievement. Satterthwaite's parents, Steven and Cynthia Satterthwaite, assistant principal Dion Reyes, and nominating teacher Gentene joined the Kiwanians in recognizing Satterthwaite's accomplishments. The Mason Kiwanis Club meets weekly at the Houston Restaurant in Mason.
