This week's Liverpool High School Senior of the Week is Student Council President Tyler Sadonis.
The LHS senior is also president of the Concert Chorale, a member of the LHS Model UN Club, and a member of FAME, an annual school musical.
Last year, Sadonis volunteered for the Otis Jennings mayoral campaign. He also volunteers at the Liverpool Public Library during the summer.
In his free time, Sadonis enjoys playing ultimate Frisbee with friends. In summer of 2008, the LHS senior traveled to China as a delegate with "People to People."
Sadonis has been honored with such awards as the AP Scholar Award, the University of Rochester George Eastman Young Leaders Award, LHS Scholastic Achievement Award for Excellence in Spanish 2 and Spanish 3.
This Senior of the Week has high aspirations for his post collegiate career, and has his grandmother's influence to fuel his determination.
"My grandmother 'Omi' (Virginia Sunheimer) has been my greatest influence because I would not be where I am without her loving care," Sadonis said.
With his family's support, Sadonis said he hopes to run for political office one day. Sadonis has been accepted to a few colleges already, but is awaiting more acceptances in the months to come. He plans to major in political science for his bachelor's degree.
