Student of the Month – January

Notre Dame’s January Student of the Month is your very own Student Council School Treasurer, Claire Suetholz.  Claire, who intends to pursue a business degree and work in the fashion industry, is a key member of our Student Council as she manages the council’s budget, coordinates schoolwide events and brings new, creative ideas to the group’s planning.  

Claire is a true servant leader who practices compassion, kindness and intellect and brings with her an impressive skill set.  According to NDA’s Admissions Director, Katie Caccavari, Claire was instrumental to the success of the Panda FunFest in the fall.  Claire was able to reflect on last year’s event, make appropriate modifications and engage her peers in facilitating the event.  Mrs. Caccavari reports the FunFest, a very important recruitment event for NDA, “was fun and ran right on schedule” under Claire’s leadership.

Since the start of her freshmen year, Claire who is a member of National Honor Society, has earned first or second honors each quarter and has participated in numerous service and extra-curricular opportunities.  Aside from serving on Student Council, Claire participates in Moss Dance Academy, NDA’s Pom and Dance Teams, Investment Club and Life Club.  Most recently, Claire decided she wanted to branch out, so she began volunteering in Over-the-Rhine with an organization called Saturday Hoops.  From 10-1 every Saturday, Claire volunteers to engage inner-city kids in healthy, faith-based fun.   

Claire’s plans for next year include attending a university that will allow her to develop her passion for writing, fashion and French.  To our January Student of the Month, we wish you well in the upcoming months and hopefully one day we will be reading your work in Vogue magazine!
