STEVEN THORNTON
Hi, my name is Steven Thornton, and I am a Senior at the Avon Grove Charter School. Through my high school years, I have completed community service with many groups, teams, and organizations. I have just earned the rank of Eagle scout in Troop 18 in West Grove after being in scouts since the fifth grade. Many other people I know have been working on their Eagle Scout Rank and I have helped many of them with their Eagle Scout Projects. In the spring of 2019, I volunteered with the Avon Grove Wildcats Lacrosse program as a coach which was a great experience and where I learned many good leadership skills. I also have volunteered at events at my church and swim team. At the Charter School, we have a Wolf Pack Mentoring program which is when a high school student is paired with a younger student and mentors them throughout the year. I was involved in this my first two years of high school. After high school I will be attending the Pennsylvania College of Technology in WIlliamsport, PA. There I will be doing a 2+2 program in their Diesel Technology program and then their Automotive Management program.
