VALHALLA, N.Y. – The Mount Pleasant Rotary Club recognized Westlake High School senior Emma Sheehan as October’s Student of the Month. The club recognizes one student each month for contributions to his or her school or community that exemplify “service above self.”
Sheehan is an honor student who is active in athletics, service, and art. As president of the school’s service club, she is responsible for planning and organizing the club’s activities, such as a blood drive, collections for U.S. troops overseas, backpack drivers for the homeless, drives for local veterans, and several other projects. She is also involved in outreach through the school’s art club and in non-school activities.
Sheehan’s commitment to service is summed up by her statement, “My mom always taught me to ‘put others before yourself… I’ve been so lucky in my life, I’d like to help people be lucky in theirs.”
