AHS Person of the Year 2017 Finalists:
Mr. Berube – Immensely knowledgeable in literature and passionate about his job, Berube, the AHS librarian, frequently can be found helping students in the media center with research projects. He also makes it his mission to find new young adult novels to add to the library’s collection.
Field Hockey Team – This year, the AHS Field Hockey won the MIAA Division I State Championship. After an impressive season–with a record of 22-0-1–the girls won 2-1 over Longmeadow in the state championships.
Girls’ Swim and Dive Team – This year, the AHS Girls’ Swim and Dive Team won the MIAA Division I Swim and Dive State Championship…again. It was the team’s 17th State Championship win in the past 18 years. The team is a consistent source of inspiration to younger members of the community interested in pursuing swim and dive.
Kazoo Club – A new edition to AHS’ laundry list of clubs, AHS Kazoo club is quickly and quirkily taking AHS by storm with their love of music–and kazoos.
Ms. Martini – The Warrior Way Program, which Martini started in 2010 alongside a senior who graduated that year, has inspired students throughout the community to aspire to try their hardest–whether it be on the field or in the classroom. In this program, high school athletes visit other Andover Public Schools to instill these values. Martini is its heart and soul.
Zach Mola – With his rise to stardom on the AHS News segment “Mornings with Mola,” Mola has captured the attention of the AHS community and sparked laughter in all.
Ms. Pina – Emphasizing cultural awareness in her social studies classes by promoting open dialogues between students and teachers, Pina has inspired many students and faculty to take a more active role in society–whether it be AHS’s community or the world’s.
AJ Roberts – Although known by many as the face behind the camera at various school events, Roberts has made a significant contribution to maintaining the AHS Garden, which is located in the courtyard. Roberts has spent more than 100 hours this year tending to the produce, all of which is donated to the AHS Cafeteria and the program Neighbors in Need In Andover in order to alleviate the cost of purchasing healthy food options.
