CHESTERTOWN Known for high achievement in both academics and extracurricular activities, North Warren High School Senior Tyler Jensen has recently been awarded as Student of the Month by the Chestertown Rotary Club.
Tyler, son of Lisa and Paul Jensen of Warrensburg, particularly excels in Mathematics and science, school counselor Mike Terrio said.
“Although Tyler has challenged himself with the most rigorous course-load possible, he has done this while maintaining an exemplary academic average,” he said, noting Tyler has a lofty class ranking.
Tyler has not only excelled in Advanced Placement Chemistry, Nuclear Physics and the new Visions Engineering program, but he’s also known for outstanding work in the Model Organization of American States, Terrio said.
Tyler is also active in dramatic and musical pursuits. He played a lead role in last year’s school production of “Back to the 80’s.”
He has also served as a member of the North Warren Students Against Destructive Decisions Chapter, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, and Quizbowl.
Tyler’s free-time pursuits are a reflection of his talents and his desire to benefit others, Terrio said. In addition to enjoying sports, playing drums, and creative writing, Tyler serves as a tutor for other students, and he volunteers in a soup kitchen.
Tyler plans to pursue the field of biomedical research this fall at Northeastern University in Boston.
