Congratulations to Olivia Schaedler for being selected by the Social Studies Department as the December Rotary Student of the Month for her excellence in her studies is History and Social Studies
Olivia Schaedler is an exceptional student of history, whether studying European History or Psychology. She has a tremendous work ethic and a combination of a keen mind and a talent for creativity. A favorite example is a project she presented in which she decoded an 18th century primary resource on Peter the Great and also built a 3-d pop-up St. Basil’s Cathedral out of cereal boxes. It seems that Olivia succeeds in everything she sets her mind to. Because she’s humble, she will tell you that it’s all hard work, but she truly is gifted. Her genius extends to her peer relations in the history classroom as well. She is a champion of group collaboration in that she partners and communicates with peers showing a true interest in their process and opinions. Olivia is a thoughtful and passionate debater. She has a flexibility of mind that allows her to see the big picture and reflect on history from all angles. For these reasons, she’s also a valuable member of Lyme-Old Lyme’s mock trial team. She has impressed attorneys and judges across the state with her ability to learn the rules of law and simulate trial advocacy. The history department wishes Olivia would pursue a career in the social sciences because the world needs more minds and hearts like hers doing the impactful work. But whatever she may pursue, she is sure to be a success.
Nice work Oliva!
