CHESTERTOWN North Warren High School Senior Amanda Millington, daughter of Donna and William Millington of Chestertown, was recently named Student of the Month by the Chestertown Rotary Club.
North Warren Central School counselor Michael Terrio said Millington has earned awards for citizenship and character, including garnering the “Most Outstanding Female” of the Class of 2012 for the past three years.
“Amanda’s care and regard for both friends and family, combined with personal accountability and responsibility, are evident in all areas of her life,” Terrio said.
Millington, a National Honor Society student, also possesses considerable athletic and musical talents, school officials said.
Millington has been a key contributor to the Girl’s Varsity Field Hockey team, and has regularly participated in Skidmore College’s Field Hockey camp at Skidmore College each year. She is an active staff member of the school newspaper, and noted for her thoughtful and stirring writings about current events, Terrio said.
Community service has also been important to Amanda, Terrio continued, noting she has volunteered in many roles.
“Amanda has made significant and lasting impacts upon those fortunate enough to have her assistance,” he said.
Among academic honors she has received was the University of Rochester Humanities and Social Sciences Award.
Millington plans to pursue studies this fall at Russell Sage College in the field of Dietetics and Health Sciences — a reflection of Millington’s interest in assisting others in following a healthy lifestyle, Terrio said.
