Nick Wilson, Pottstown High School (PHS) senior, was named the first ever Co-Curricular Student of the Quarter at Pottstown High School. You can learn all about his achievements in a video interview between him and Mr. Steven Anspach, Director of Co-Curricular Activities.

Wilson has earned a 104.8 GPA. He is involved in many athletic and non-athletic activities, including cross country, track and field, jazz, concert, and marching band, pit orchestra for the Pottstown School District musical, National Honors Society, and Student Government.

Several PHS teachers nominated Wilson for this honor. In his nomination, engineering teacher Andy Bachman described Wilson as a “dedicated student-athlete and talented young man. Nick is a leader in the classroom and hallways.” 

Wilson describes the importance of “performing on both the field and in the classroom” and believes that his teachers see him as hard-working. He wants to attend college for civil engineering and has already been accepted by three schools.

Recently, the Pottstown High School DECA Club, an association of marketing students, elected a new slate of officers and inducted 32 new members at a program held at Pottstown High School cafeteria. The evening’s ceremonies were conducted by DECA Advisors Mr. Kevin Pascal and Mrs. Lyndsay Hashem.

Jen Hainsey was elected President along with Vice-President Julian Weber, Executive Director Dennis Morales, and Management Director Emmanuel Toussaint. Newly elected President Jen Hainsey encouraged the inductees to take full advantage of the opportunities and activities that are a part of the DECA experience. The newly elected officers conducted the induction ceremony where 32 new members joined the ranks of the organization.

Victoria McShea, a Pottstown High School graduate and former DECA member, made some brief remarks to the students and family members in attendance. “Students who participate in DECA learn specific career technical skills, communication skills, human relations, and employability skills that will be valuable for the rest of their lives.” 

Emmanuel Toussaint led the group in the pledging of the DECA Creed and said, “I am proud to have you join DECA and look forward to an exciting year of district, regional, and state competitions.”

Julian Weber provided a PowerPoint presentation highlighting all of the activities that DECA students participated in during the previous year.

Mr. Pascal and Mrs. Hashem welcomed the newly inducted students and praised the efforts of the Executive Team in organizing the event. “Induction is one of those events during the DECA year that is stressful but our officers rose to the occasion and have made this a memorable event for both inductees and their family members.”

Congratulations to Courtney Parry. Courtney is all smiles because with less than a quarter of the way through her senior year she has already been accepted at Gwynedd Mercy, Chestnut Hill, Rosemont, and Widener. Adding to her holiday cheer is the fact that she has received presidential scholarships from all four schools. Courtney is a member of National Honor Society and runs on the Cross Country and Track teams. She is also learning about civic responsibility as a Student Representative to the Pottstown School Board. No question her hard work is paying off. Courtney Parry, another reason to say Proud to be from Pottstown.
