Mason High School senior Juan Tramontin was recognized as The Kiwanis Club of Mason's April Student of the Month. Tramontin was nominated by MHS business teacher Cindy Donnely.
"It is an honor to recommend Juan Tramontin for the Kiwanis April Student of the Month. Juan is such a special person who has brought a whole new level of leadership, commitment and happiness to Mason High School. No matter what event is going on at school, you will most likely see Juan cheering, organizing, planning, and most of all enjoying every minute of it. His leadership has impacted students in so many ways, whether it’s getting the freshmen to feel comfortable enough to cheer on their classmates, to welcoming new members to clubs, to standing in front of 3500 students for two hours leading our Fall Pep Assembly. In such a large school, Juan has definitely made a difference!" shared Donnely.
Tramontin was selected as co-president of Mason High School's Comet Savings & Loan and is responsible for running and operating CS&L, which has more than 650 accounts and $250,000 in deposits. The staffing at the financial center consists of 55 employees/managers, and Juan is in charge of overseeing and evaluating each bank department VP, making sure daily procedures are followed. Tramontin has also presented to more than 500 Financial Literacy and Baking & Investment students in the Harvard Room.
Tramontin also carries a 4.55 GPA, and has maintained these outstanding marks while staying very active in Spanish National Honor Society, Mason High School Student Government, and the Mason Cross Country team. Tramontin also gives back, as he chaired the Student Government Kids Count where the first bell classes bought Christmas gifts for families suffering from medical hardships, he tutors weekly to students needing help with Spanish I, II, III, or AP, and he was selected this year to mentor one of MECC's first grade students who was needing a positive male role model in his life. In addition, Juan traveled to a remote location in Costa Rica and spent four weeks building a community kitchen from scratch, babysitting the community's children, and teaching English classes.
In the fall, he plans to pursue International Relations at The Ohio State University or South Carolina University.
On April 21, the Kiwanis Club presented Tramontin with $50 and a certificate commemorating his achievement. Tramontin's parents, Angel Tramontin and Liliana Gebran, assistant principal Kevin Mays, and nominating teacher Donnely joined the Kiwanians in recognizing Tramontin's accomplishments. The Mason Kiwanis Club meets weekly at noon at the Houston Restaurant in Mason.
