October Student of the Month - Angela Deposki
Angela Deposki is an outstanding student at Lindbergh High School where she carries a heavy class load and excels in her studies. But her dedication, enthusiasm, and focus do not stop when the bell rings at the end of the school day. She is also quite involved in the extracurricular program at Lindbergh, immersing herself in such activities and programs as National Honors Society, FCA, RAK Tribe (Random Acts of Kindness), Project Self, Green Machine, Sports Medicine, HOSA, and Link Crew. Angela is an excellent example of what it means to be an active and involved citizen at LHS.
Outside of school, Angela takes the few hours not already occupied by classes and homework and dedicates them to other pursuits. She participates in competitive gymnastics and is involved in Worthy STL.
In addition, Angela helps the community around her by volunteering at Kids of Victory Camps and the Amazing Pageant for kids with special needs. In all, Angela Deposki embodies what it means to be a well-rounded, caring, and active young woman in our community.
Congratulations on your past endeavors and good luck with your future!
