Megan Lam, a freshman in the Graphic Communications Program, has been selected as Somerset County Vocational & Technical High School’s (SCVTHS) Student of the Month for October 2020. Megan is the daughter of Patrick and Mya Lam of Bound Brook.

SCVTHS Spanish Instructor Mr. Guillermo Reina nominated Megan for the Student of the Month Award because Megan is, "an outstanding student who excels virtually as well as in the classroom. She has been very committed to succeed in her studies since day one. She is the highest achieving student in the class. Kudos to Megan!”

As a freshman, the Student of the Month Award is Megan’s first high school award. However, last year, Megan served as the vice president of her school’s National Junior Honor Society and was also a member of the National Junior Art Honor Society.

Outside of school, Megan enjoys playing tennis, as well as playing games online with her friends. Prior to the Covid-19 pandemic, Megan was very active volunteering at a nursing home and other events in her home town.

After high school, Megan plans on studying environmental business in college, in hopes of finding a career as a sustainability specialist.

“I’m thankful for receiving the Student of the Month award and am looking forward to my time at SCVTHS,” said Megan upon receiving the award.
