This week's Liverpool High Senior of the Week, Michael DeMauro, is a student of musical talent. He is a member of the high school Jazz Ensemble and an electric guitar player.
DeMauro's academic honors include Superior Achievement in U.S. History, a silver medal at the Earth Science Symposium and an academic letter of achievement. Winning the All-Star Award at the Oneida Jazz Festival is among DeMauro's recent achievements, as well.
He has also been named LHS Student of the Month.
Although he is undecided on the major he will choose in college, DeMauro said he has decided to attend Syracuse University next fall.
DeMauro said he chose SU because of its proximity to his family and for the quality education he would receive.
With great interest in the field of science, DeMauro said his favorite class at LHS is global environmental science and forestry.
DeMauro's greatest influence in life is his older brother, LHS social studies teacher Frank DeMauro.
"He [Frank] is a great role model and is always there for me," Michael said of his brother.
