Each month, the Red Lion-Dallastown Rotary Club chooses two Red Lion juniors as their Students of the Month. For November, these students were Sandra Phan and Alexander Schor.
When she isn’t busy studying the makeup of functional groups like, Alcohols and Carboxyls, Sandra Phan can be seen studying the makeup of a piece on the piano.
Sandra Phan is one of the two students who were awarded the Rotary Club of Dallastown-Red Lion’s November Student of the Month.
Sandra is involved in a variety of activities, from marching band to student council to just recently, National Honor Society.
Her motivation to shine in everything that she does is what makes her stand out. “I think the general key to being successful is finding the motivation to strive for triumph,” said Sandra.
She cites her mother as not only her role model, but her inspiration to work harder each and every day. With every obstacle she has faced, she sees that as inspiration to overcome anything.
She is currently taking AP Chemistry in order to prepare her for her future major in chemistry. Her goal after college is to become a dermatologist, however she also is interested in being a pharmaceutical scientist.
Among her many academic accomplishments, Sandra also involves herself in the music world.
She marches for the Red Lion Marching Lions and has been doing props for the musical since freshman year. It is her piano playing skills, however, that make her stand out the most. For four years Sandra has been taking lessons, and has since passed the Pennsylvania State Music Auditions at York College twice.
Junior Alexander Schor, commonly known as Alex, is the other November Student of the Month for the Rotary Club.
With a diversity in interests, Alex does it all. He says, “The key to being proficient in whatever work I do is balancing my time-management skills.”
Alex states his mother as not only his number one support system in everything that he does, but as his role model as well.
Alex has been involved in Red Lion’s seminar program for years and meets with Mrs. Cozzens each morning before his AP Calculus class. In the future Alex hopes to go to college and study engineering.
Helping others is one of his biggest passions. When he’s not working hard in his AP Physics and AP Calculus classes, he spends his time tutoring sophomores in chemistry.
He also uses his nine years of tennis experience to help Coach Small in managing the girls tennis team.
Tennis is among the many things that he does when he isn’t pursuing his academic career. His greatest accomplishment was lettering his freshman year.
Tennis is not the only extracurricular that he partakes in, he also enjoys playing in the school’s guitar club. “I have been playing guitar for about a year now and love playing mainly rock and indie genres,” said Alex.
One thing many may not know about Alex, is that each Wednesday, rain or shine, he wakes up earlier than the rest of us to meet his friends at the flagpole outside of the commons. Why you ask? They all gather to unify and pray together. Alex states religion as a very big part of his life. “God is good,” he says.

Look at Jenna Kehoe.
Standing at five feet six inches, golden curls falling neatly, and bright blue eyes that shine like spotlights.
Her radiant smile lights up the room, as she exudes care and bravery.
Standing next to her, always glued to her side, is a mirror image of herself.
Hailey Kehoe holds the same warmth and identical curls frame her face.
The sisters are never seen apart, almost like creating two halves of a whole.
However, this perfect bond was almost broken four years ago when Jenna sat clutching her sister’s hand as she struggled on a hospital bed.

Standing in the Baltimore-Washington International Airport with bug spray, a water bottle, and her Bible, junior Ashlyn Smith was ready for her four and a half hour flight to the Punta Cana airport in the Dominican Republic.
From Feb. 21 to March 5, her mission was to distribute necessary supplies and share the gospel with the Dominican children and teenagers, with the help of 18 others from the Christ American Baptist Church in York, PA.
