Congratulations are extended to Minooka Community High School senior Gary Gomez, son of Amy and Vincent Gomez of Channahon, for being named the Channahon-Minooka Rotary Club “Student of the Month” for September.
In the classroom, Gary maintains a 3.9 grade-point-average (on a 4.0 scale), and is listed on the MCHS high honor roll. Gary has been a member of the marching band and pep band all four years of high school, National Honor Society inductee in 2018, and named NHS Secretary for his senior year.
Outside the classroom, Gary enjoys volunteering as a counselor at the Center’s Children’s Farm in Palos Park.
“I feel everyone in our community already provides an impact one way or another but through service, big or small, it positively unites the community,” Gomez said. “High school students have a unique perspective and experiences that allows them to view our community in a new light. This perspective allows students to find new ways to serve the community,” Gomez added.
Gomez plans to continue his education after graduation in May at Illinois State University. Gary plans on majoring in History (secondary education), while minoring in Political Science and Economics. His career ambition is to return to Minooka Community High School and teach History.
