Saige Shoudt, a freshman in the Gifted and Talented Honors Dance Program, has been selected as Somerset County Vocational & Technical High School’s (SCVTHS) Student of the Month for March 2022. Saige is the daughter of Dawn Em of Frenchtown.
SCVTHS English Instructor Mr. Miller nominated Saige for the Student of the Month award stating, “Saige is a hard worker, a good student, and a valuable teammate for her peers. Saige is quite conscientious, not only about her grades, but about the quality of her work. Her classmates can count on Saige to be helpful and insightful—always with a good attitude.”
Dance Department Coordinator Sheila Sullivan added, “Saige is an enthusiastic student who always brings 120% to her dance classes. She is a pleasure to teach and we look forward to her future growth in our Dance Program both technically and artistically.”
Outside of SCVTHS, Saige is very involved with the Epic Dance Company in Flemington. Each day after school, Saige attends the Epic Dance Company to assist with the younger dancers and work on her skills. In her free time, Saige enjoys spending time with her family and friends, going down to the shore and exercising.
After graduating from SCVTHS, Saige plans on attending college at either the University of Southern California or the University of Arizona and eventually hopes to work in the Dance industry. Additionally, Saige is considering taking additional classes to become a therapist. Saige stated that she is interested in helping young adults with loss, anxiety, and depression.
