Class of 2017 Graduate Spotlight

The Class of 2017 has certainly left its mark on Mount Olive High School. From academics to sports and extracurriculars, the students in this graduating class will surely be missed. As the students prepare for commencement exercises, which will take place on June 23rd at 6:30 p.m. in the MOHS Gymnasium, several students of the Class of 2017 are being acknowledged for their accomplishments.

Erica Lengyel has been recognized as the Valedictorian of the senior class. Erica, will be majoring in Physics at Renesseler Polytechnic Institute in New York, said that her Physics teachers at MOHS, Mr. Khalil and Mr. Holton, had a strong influence in her decision to study Physics at the post-secondary level. Erica said, "School is how I found out I was passionate about Physics. I took it as a freshman with Physics First, and now I'm in AP Physics as a senior. These classes helped me decide my college track."

Ashish Bhat is the Salutatorian of the senior class. He will be attending the University of Pennsylvania in the fall, where he will be majoring in Computer Engineering. He's interested in the field of cybersecurity but is unsure of where his future career path may lead. Ashish said, "The classes that I took at MOHS helped me interact socially and academically. My classes here, especially Physics and AP Euro and AP US HIstory, helped me become a better critical thinker, which will help me solve real world problems."

Alec Talanca and Alyssa Mathura were recently recognized as Morris County Scholar-Athletes. Alec, who will be attending The Ohio State to study Finance said, "I believe that sports develop teamwork skills and help build relationships with people you'll remember for the rest of your life. Academics here at Mount Olive have taught me to be a better thinker and have allowed me to be a more knowledgeable, global citizen." Alec is looking forward to playing Club Baseball in college.

Alyssa had similar positive experience with sports and academics in Mount Olive and said one of her most memorable moments was last year when their softball team beat the number one seed in the state. Alyssa said, "It was a highlight because we weren't expected to win against them. As a member of the softball team I learned that we need to work as one unit to reach a common goal." Alyssa will be attending Florida International University in the fall, where she will be studying Civil Engineering. She looks forward to playing Club Softball at the university.

Richard Huisa was recently awarded the title of "Senior of the Year" at the annual Renaissance Banquet. Richie, who will be attending Brown University in the fall and majoring in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, was nominated for the honor by many of his teachers, who recognized him for his strong work ethic and dedication to education. Richie said, "For me, being named Senior of the Year means that I made the right choices throughout my high school career. Going into high school I adopted the mindset of being optimistic and pushing myself and my peers. It comes as second nature to help other students academically. My hope is that more students will help their peers out academically."

Theodore Goodman is also being recognized for having perfect attendance all four years at MOHS. Theodore said, "I was determined to never miss anything in my school career." He plans on attending DeSalles University in the fall, where he will be studying Forensic Science. Theodore wants to go into a career in Forensic Science but is undecided on which aspect at this time.

Best of luck to all of the members of the Class of 2017 as they move on to bigger and better things after graduation!
