Colton Kuzdzal named Rotary Student of the Month
Colton Kuzdzal is the December Rotary Student of the Month from Fredonia High School.
He is currently in his senior year at Fredonia High School.
“It is a tremendous honor to be selected as the Rotary Student of the Month. First and foremost I would like to thank my parents Mike and Heather Kuzdzal for their continuing support for everything I do and for constantly pushing me to grow as a person. Without their backing I would undoubtedly not be where I am today and I owe the majority of my successes to them,” he said.
“After attending multiple schools early on in my life, we eventually settled down and have been attending the Fredonia Central School District since fourth grade. I have always challenged myself, which has led to me being an honor roll student all throughout my educational career. My drive and determination has been rewarded with selection into the National Honor Society, as well as multiple small scholarships to in-state engineering schools. The lessons and skills that I have learned during high school will invariably help me in my future endeavors, no matter what I end up doing,” he said.
In addition to academics, Kuzdzal spent a good majority of his time playing sports. He is a three sport Varsity athlete, playing football, basketball, and baseball. “It is a large commitment, spending at least three hours everyday at practices or games, but it is something that I love to do as something that challenges me and helps me grow,” he said.
Kuzdzal is involved in Fredonia’s Model United Nations club as a student leader. He is also an Eagle Scout within Fredonia’s Boy Scout Troop, which has led to many hours of community service in many different areas, something that he says is very rewarding.
“When I’m not in school, I enjoy playing videogames or hanging out with my friends and family. I also enjoy watching movies and reading when I have time in my busy schedule to allow it,” he said.
Kuzdzal plans on attending college to receive a degree in Mechanical Engineering or Computer Sciences.
“I do not know what my future holds, but I cannot wait to see and to face those challenges head-on,” he said. “This is a huge honor, and I am very grateful for being selected as Rotary Student of the Month.”
