The Education Council of the Fayette Chamber of Commerce recently honored Amber Blanish of Somerset, a junior at Geibel Catholic High School, as a student of the month for February.
A daughter of Mathew and Dianna Blanish, she is undecided about the post secondary school she will attend, but plans to study English with the career goal of becoming an english teacher.
She is a member of the French Honor Society, Junior National Honor Society and Penn State 4.0 Club.
Blanish is a lector at her church and a trail guide at Teen Quest with work experience selling bingo tickets at the fire hall.
She is a manager for the cross country team at Geibel.
Elected by their schools based on academic achievement, extra curricular activities, and citizenship, students of the month are honored by the chamber’s Education Council. They will be presented a recognition certificate at the Students of the Month Dinner in April.
