By Special to the Monitor

Noah Sandoval, the son of Peter and Cindy Sandoval, has been chosen as the Rotary Student of the Month for April. Sandoval is involved in many school and community organizations. At the high school, Sandoval is the senior class president of student council, which he has been involved in for three years. Similarly, he serves as the National Honor Societys vice president, and has been a member for the past two years. Outside of school, Sandoval is a youth representative to the Los Alamos Juvenile Justice Advisory Board, and just graduated from his first year in the Los Alamos Youth Leadership program.

Some of Sandovals passions are the sports in which he is involved. At the high school, Sandoval has participated in both soccer and track and field for all fours years of his high school career. Sandoval played two years on the boys varsity soccer team, and this past year he was selected by his coaches to serve as a captain. Likewise in track and field, Sandoval has been chosen as a captain for the three years that he has been on the varsity squad. Sandoval views the achievement of serving as captain in these sports as one of his greatest honors. When Sandoval is not participating in soccer and track, he enjoys skiing and kickboxing.

Other hobbies of Sandovals include reading and making, listening, and dancing to music. He is dedicated in his academic studies and plans on pursuing a degree in biomedical engineering. Sandoval would like to thank all of the people who have encouraged him to try harder and reach to further. Most importantly, Sandoval would like to thank his track and field coach William Stolpe and his parents and the rest of his family. Other influential people in his life include Sherry McGregor, Cheryl Roth, Morris Pongratz and Sherry Anderson. Sandoval would also like to express his thanks to the Rotary Club, the oldest service organization in the United States, for this honor.
