Eastern's Student of the Month an Abington Senior
Gregory Garvin still finds time to volunteer in Glenside.
Gregory Garvin is the April 2012 Student of the Month at Eastern Center for Arts and Technology in Willow Grove. He is in his second year of Eastern’s collision repair technology program and a senior at Abington High School.
Garvin maintains an A average in his collision repair technology program and is active in SkillsUSA as the Collision Repair Technology 2011-12 Class Treasurer. He received second place for collision repair technology at the SkillsUSA District Competition held earlier this year at the Western Center for Technical Studies in Limerick.
Throughout the year, Garvin volunteered his time representing Eastern and his collision repair technology program at recruitment events such as Eastern’s Tenth-Grade Career Expo, and Garvin is the 2011 – 2012 student representative for Eastern’s Collision Repair Technology Occupational Advisory Committee. Last summer, Garvin was a teacher’s aide for Eastern’s Summer Fun Auto Mechanics and Collision Repair program for middle-school students.
Garvin received his SP/2 certification for collision pollution training and collision safety. Both his father and sister attended Eastern.
At Abington High School, Garvin is a distinguished honor roll recipient. Outside of school, Garvin still finds time to participate on the Abington Township ice hockey team, and volunteers for the Glenside Youth Athletic Club baseball team and Rau Animal Hospital. He has also been providing landscaping services locally since 2006.
After he graduates, Garvin plans to attend Montgomery County Community College for business and eventually, he said he would like to take over for his collision repair technology instructor, Steve Parke.
Eastern’s faculty, joint committee and the Willow Grove Rotary Club sponsor the Student of the Month program to highlight student excellence, success and service.
