Jada Wesenberg recognized by Assemblyman Colin Schmitt as a Student of Achievement

Assemblyman Colin Schmitt (R,C,I,Ref-New Windsor) held his inaugural 99th Assembly District Students of Achievement event at the Washingtonville Middle School Auditorium. This official State Assembly government event was created to recognize students from across the Assembly District who have made significant contributions to their school communities and the 99th Assembly District. 

Assemblyman Schmitt said, "It was a genuine pleasure to honor such an impressive group of young women and men from the school communities that shape the 99th Assembly District.  Parents, teachers and administrators that have shaped this group of students are also to be applauded." 

For Valley Central School District, Assemblyman Schmitt honored Jada Wesenberg.
"Jada is a student dedicated to service. She has volunteered a number of hours with numerous organizations in her community. Jada presently volunteers as a volunteer musician as well as spending time as a child care volunteer in Walden, aids with the school plays at Walden Elementary, a nursing home helper at Montgomery nursing home, and an elementary school student reader to first and third grade students. In addition to her volunteer work Jada is part of Revelations Magazine, Set Design Club and the Valley Central High School Pep Band. Jada has also excelled in the classroom as a member of the Gradus Honoris, Rho Kappa Social Studies, Valley Central National English, National Art and Tri-M Music Honor Societies."

Jada is the daughter of Carolyn and Melvin Wesenberg.  Her sister, Sonia is a graduate. 

Assemblyman Schmitt went on to note that these students are the future leaders and community members that will shape our towns and villages in fundamental ways.  

It is worthy to note that Assemblyman Schmitt is a Valley Central graduate himself.
