Samuel Stewart, a senior at North Technical High School, is a multi-talented student who is more than willing to share those talents with others through volunteering and belonging to school clubs and organizations.
“Sam is a great communicator who inspires my other students,” said North Tech Graphic Design teacher David Bohannan. “When his classmates have questions or a problem, he is quick to help. He is always courteous to his teachers and classmates and his school citizenship record is spotless.”
As a member of the North Tech baseball team, he helped lead the Eagles to the district semifinals last season. He also volunteers with the Redbird Rookies, an organization that promotes free, noncompetitive baseball and softball programming, as well as support in the areas of health, education, mentoring, cultural arts and scholarships. He earned the Redbird Rookies Saigh Scholarship.
With a perfect 4.0 GPA in the Graphic Design program, Samuel has earned entrance into Drake University where he has been offered a Presidential Scholarship. He’s a member of the National Technical Honor Society, North Tech’s Anime and Art clubs, and is active in the University of Missouri-St. Louis Bridge Program. UMSL’s Bridge program’s Saturday Academy requires members to get up early on Saturday mornings to perform rigorous college prep studies.
