Jordan Guerra, a senior at Grafton High School, is the first Grafton recipient of the Student of the Month program recently launched by the Cedarburg-Grafton Rotary. He was honored during today club luncheon meeting at the Peter Wollner American Legion Post in Cedarburg.
The program recognizes students from Cedarburg and Grafton High School who demonstrate hard work through school, employment, or other activities. They must show a strong dedication to community service or have made a meaningful or lasting contribution to their community.
In selecting Guerra, Grafton School Superintendent Jeff Nelson said he is actively involved in many school activities including varsity soccer, Leo’s, Military History Book Club, and Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA). “He is a strong student enrolled in Advanced Placement classes while also being a Youth Apprentice at Controlled Dynamics,” Nelson said. “You will often see Jordan volunteering at high school events with a video camera and microphone recording students and performers/athletes in action and then editing the clips for social media. He worked with me last year on creating our annual staff retiree videos and did a great job capturing our staff and their memories of working in our district.” Nelson said Guerra is a “giving person who will do great things” after leaving GHS. 
The award is given monthly, alternating between Cedarburg and Grafton High Schools. The students receive a $50 chamber gift check for their own use, and a $50 donation is made in their name to a charity of their choice. Guerra selected the Susan G. Komen Foundation as his designated charity.
