Tabernacle, NJ – Seneca Senior Julia Greeley is being honored as the Senior Student Spotlight winner for October.
The award is given by Assemblyman Ryan Peters, who celebrates a different senior each month, “in light of the difficult year they are navigating and the achievements they are accomplishing.”
Julia was nominated by Chad Devino, a School Counselor at Seneca. Devino explained that when he heard of the award he, “thought of Julia first thing because of her academic and athletic prowess. Julia is a scholar athlete and I knew she was a force when she first came out for XC in the fall of her freshman year. Julia moved over to pole vaulting her sophomore year and has been dominating every year. Julia is the full package and my favorite thing about her is that her accomplishments don’t go to her head. She is humble, kind and will always strive to be better. She is personable, outgoing, and will go far in this world.”
In the Facebook Post through which he announced the winner, Assemblyman Peters noted that, “this award fits Julia perfectly. She’s been described by her peers and faculty as, ‘never taking the easy way out, never doing anything halfway and never quitting.’ Those traits will carry her well through life beyond high school.
“Julia is a scholar athlete who ranks #1 in her class and is one of the best pole vaulters in Seneca’s school history. Although she has broken a ton of records, she’s described as humble and puts her all into her education as well. I have no doubt Julia is destined for great things.”
