WOODBRIDGE >> Woodbridge First Selectman Ellen Scalettar and Woodbridge Youth Services congratulate Audrey Grotheer, a dedicated senior at Amity High School, for earning the 2016 First Selectman’s Youth Award.

The daughter of Jeanette Glicksman and Laurence Grotheer, she will receive her award April 28 at the Human Services Volunteer Tea.

Ashley Mozealous, a school counselor at Amity, nominated Grotheer for her many accomplishments and her efforts in the town of Woodbridge. According to Mozealous, cheerfulness, graciousness and a kind-hearted nature are attributes that Audrey displays as she approaches her work. Her community service includes Town Library programs such as Reading Together, which pairs teens with younger

students, and Crazy 8’s Math.

Grotheer is also a student member of the Woodbridge Youth Advisory Board, and has shared her time with Youth Services at various youth evening programs decorating, registering students, and cleaning up after events. Also, she volunteers as a peer tutor at Amity High School, and is involved with volunteer work through the Art Honor Society and the Spanish Honor Society.

She is a pleasant, unassuming young woman who remains true to herself as she pursues her goals.

She is a dedicated member of the Amity Theater program, and has volunteered as a camp counselor for the Amity Creative Theater summer program.
