Student of the Month

At our December 11th meeting, we recognized two incredible students.  

Aiden Rufer

The theme for our Student of the Month for December is "Musical Excellence."  Our Student of the Month from Henry M. Jackson High School is Aiden Rufer.  Aidan is a senior at H.M. Jackson High School.  His is a tremendously well-rounded student with a 3.7 GPA that includes five Advanced Placement courses. He has also been actively involved in many aspects in our performing arts department, most notably in Honors Wind Ensemble, jazz bands, percussion ensemble, drum line, and most recently the school musical (The Addams Family). He is a fabulous role model for his peers and remains humble and compassionate in spite of his talent and success. Aidan truly embodies the characteristics of the Jackson Way: Pride, Excellence,
Aidan aspires to attend Cornish right here in Seattle to further his studies in music.  We look forward to hearing him perform in the future.  Congratulations Aiden!
