Twins receive MAHS Student of the Month honors

Posted

A pair of Middletown Area High School students — who happen to be twins — are Students of the Month for May.

They are the children of Dennis and Yvonne Hursh.

John is involved in band (jazz, concert and marching), chorus, WMSS, Brainbusters (captain the last two years, team made quarterfinals), performing arts, Science Olympiad, Harrisburg Regional Chamber of Commerce Business Challenge (first-place team) and National Honor Society.

He is a member of his church praise band (bassist), a youth representative for the Oliver LaGrone Scholarship Committee, and a member of his church youth group.

As part of WMSS, he has won the Pennsylvania Association of Broadcasters’ Outstanding Coverage of a Local Sporting Event award three years in a row. He has been on the honor roll every marking period and was first alternate bassist for District Jazz Band.

He plans to attend Union College but has not decided on a major.

“When I heard that I was student of the month along with Lydia (my twin sister), I couldn’t help but laugh. It seemed a little coincidental.”

Lydia Hursh is in band (marching and concert), chorus, WMSS, Brainbusters (team made quarterfinals), performing arts, Science Olympiad, National Honor Society and is GSA treasurer.

She is involved in the church handbell choir, is a youth representative on the Religious Exploration Committee, is part of a church youth group, and is involved in Girl Scouts.

As part of WMSS, she also has won the Pennsylvania Association of Broadcasters’ Outstanding Coverage of a Local Sporting Event award three years in a row. She also has been on the honor roll every marking period.

She plans to attend Union College in the fall, and major in Environmental Studies. She has been invited to Union College’s Scholars Program.

“I can double park in the Student of the Month parking spots,” she said upon being told of the honor.
