Marlton, NJ – Assemblywoman Jean Stanfield has selected Cherokee High School senior Ava Betson as “Senior Student Spotlight” winner for the month of October.
I chose Ava because she is a well-rounded student who has achieved President’s List and Honor’s List consecutively since freshman year.
She is also a member in the National Honors Society, the Renaissance Program, and the Latin Honor Society. Ava is actively involved in her school by being a part of Student Council, the Environmental Club, andvshe is a leader of the Art Club.
Not only is Ava very involved within the walls of Cherokee, she displays her kindness by volunteering her time to various groups in her community.
Ava is a mentor for a local organization called Girl Talk Marlton, where she guides weekly meetings for middle school girls to learn important skills. I know Ava has the determination to carve a very successful path for her future with Psychology.
