Peter Cook, a senior at JH Classical Academy, was one of four Teton County high school students to be recognized as a Jackson Hole Rotary Club Spring “Student of the Season” at the Rotary Club’s recent virtual meeting.
After being introduced by JHCA’s Dean of Faculty, Dr. Joe Rudolph, Peter presented an essay addressing a prompt and then spoke about his accomplishments, how he contributes to the community, and his leadership abilities.
JH Classical Academy nominated Peter for the award due to his demonstration of our six core virtues — faith, hope, love, prudence, justice, temperance, and courage — and for exemplifying the Rotary’s motto of “Service above self.”
Dean of Students, Mr. Samuel Lunz, has known Peter for the past five years and said, “There are so many things Peter is doing and has done that fit perfectly with the Rotary’s guidelines for a Student of the Season. His character and the fact that he’s an Eagle Scout, has earned his pilot’s license, and is a member of our first graduating class make him an excellent representative of our school for this award.”
Peter has also applied to several Rotary scholarships, for which preference is given to a Student of the Season. “Receiving a Rotary scholarship will help me achieve my dream of attending college to major in business management and finance,” Peter said.
