Student of the Month: December – Tyler Ashmore


It is my pleasure to nominate Tyler Ashmore as THS Student of the Month for December. Tyler is the type of young man that any high school would want to represent their values and credentials.

Tyler was always one of my top physics students. Tyler shows a strong desire to learn and a great interest in his academic studies; he is a very eager student who is always searching for new knowledge and is always looking to improve. In class, he has proven to be a highly motivated person who is able to successfully excel in science and has been able to relate physics to real-life experiences. You will find his commitment and attitude to everything he does is astounding. Tyler always devotes total dedication to all activities; his devotion goes well beyond any high school senior.

Not only is Tyler a superior student, he is also a dedicated volleyball and basketball player and club participant. He is involved in several clubs such as Student Against Destructive Decisions, Youth Traffic Safety, Rachel’s Challenge, Model UN, Dreamer’s Club, National Honors Society, Student’s Helping Others Club, and Pennsylvania Junior Academy of Science. As the sponsor of the Pennsylvania Junior Academy of Science, I was able to see Tyler successfully demonstrate remarkable communication and leadership skills, which were displayed in his second place award at the PJAS Regional Competition. Tyler also shows leadership and commitment skills as one of the most involved Students Helping Others club member. He is always willing to give his time and talents to help in any way. He has volunteered several hours every year for this club to help the Teen Outreach Program in Washington, PA. Tyler displays a work ethic like no other and displays amazing school spirit and pride. He is a true leader. With  all these activities, he still maintains his high academic achievement and a wonderful attitude.

When Tyler has free time, he also performs several duties of community service. He has volunteered for the Dreamers Club where he has done lawn work, demolition, and construction to better the community of Washington. As a member of the Students Helping Others Club, he has helped with Washington’s Got Talent and the Seesaw Marathon which are fundraisers for the Teen Outreach Program. Not only does he participate in these activities, he takes an active role in planning, organizing, and running these events here at Trinity and for the Washington community. Clearly, Tyler is a true leader with an amazing work ethic and a heart of gold; he  deserves to be Student of the Month.
