WOODBRIDGE >> Amity Regional High School senior Cory Sachs, a town resident, was recently honored by the Rotary Club as Student of the Month for February.

The Rotary Club and Woodbridge Social Restaurant have partnered to honor an Amity student monthly.

He was nominated by school counselor Lisa Conley who described him as “poised, focused, direct but polite, a young man who interacts with purpose. He strives in excellence in all that he does and it’s apparent in the results he has produced.”

Academically, he has been a consistently successful student primarily enrolled in an advanced college preparatory track.

His extracurricular activities include being a two- year member of the Junior Statesmen of America Club and a four-year member of the lacrosse team.

He has also participated in a lacrosse program that donated equipment and taught students in Israel how to play the sport.

In the community, he has served in leadership positions at the local and regional levels for four years at BBYO. Throughout high school, he has volunteered at the Jewish Family Service of Greater New Haven food pantry.
