Student of the Month – Emily Meatty

The Triton School Committee recognized their first Student of the Month for the 2019/2020 School Year at their meeting on October 16th. Congratulations to senior Emily Meatty who was nominated by the entire staff of the REACH program at the high school.

Emily has faced a variety of obstacles over her 17 years but hasn’t let any of them hold her back. Rather than use any of her challenges as an excuse to fall behind, Emily has worked very hard so that she can graduate with her peers this spring. Not only will she graduate, but she was also an honor roll student all last year, even winning the end-of-the-year award for her English class. “Emily is a rock star and a true example of hard work, fortitude, commitment and dedication to graduate from high school,” said Lenora Swerling, Evaluation Team Chairperson. 
 
While students often struggle to determine their path after high school, Emily already has a plan. She will be attending Northern Essex Community College, will be starting her own dog walking business, and eventually hopes to own a doggy day are.  “Emily is one of the most resourceful and hard-working people I know who does not take ‘no’ for an answer,” said Triton teacher Joshua Noble. “In a time when many criticize this generation for not working hard, Emily is an exception.” Congratulations, Emily! We can’t wait to see how your future unfolds.
