Waag named Rotary Student of the Month
Andrew Waag has been selected as the Fredonia High School Rotary Student of the Month for October.
Andrew is a senior at Fredonia High School. His father, Darrell Waag is a Fredonia Middle School science teacher, and his mother, Kimberly Waag, is a children’s ministry worker.
Andrew has been a student of the Fredonia Central School District for all of his life. He enjoys going to school each day, learning valuable skills, and preparing for college. He has been an honor roll student for all of his high school and middle school educational career, and challenges himself to do his best in every class. He is also a member of both the National Honor Society, and the Tri-M Music Honor Society. To many people in the school, he is known as the “tech kid,”, and helps others with skills learned from his summer job and two internships with the tech department at his school.
He is also very involved in the excellent music program at Fredonia High School. This year, Andrew is the lead trumpet player for Fredonia’s Symphonic Band, and participates in Chamber Choir, Jazz Band and Madrigals every week.
Andrew has gone on mission trips to help rebuild and finish houses destroyed by natural disasters, and has also played trumpet and sang Christmas carols at many nursing homes for community service.
When not working hard at school, Andrew enjoys building and perfecting high performance personal computers. Building computers is actually what inspired him to intern with the tech department at his school in the first place. He also loves to play Dungeons and Dragons, and is an avid collector of Marvel movies.
Andrew plans to go to college for Computer Information Systems or Network Administration, so he can become an IT professional in the future.
