This week's Liverpool High School Senior of the Week is Adam Rothenberg.
He is a member of the National Honor Society and Student Council, in which he is the school-wide treasurer. His favorite classes are AP calculus and AP chemistry.
Rothenberg's favorite activity is music. At LHS, he is a pianist in the jazz ensemble and symphonic band, cellist in the symphonic orchestra and piano accompanist in concert chorale. He was also a member of the pit orchestra during the school's production of the musical, Fame. Outside school, he is a cellist in the Syracuse Symphony Youth Orchestra.
In his free time, he volunteers for Read It Forward literacy program and the Salvation Army.
Rothenberg said the greatest influence in his life has been his tenth grade English teacher, Patty Miller, who taught him to "question everything and accept nothing."
During his time at LHS, Rothenberg has won many awards, including the Harvard Prize Book Award, a National Merit Letter of Commendation and the Frank Mantooth Outstanding Musician Award. He is also an AP Scholar with Distinction, All-State Pianist and Cellist and Syracuse Symphony Orchestra Concerto Competition winner.
With all his musical achievements, it's no surprise Rothenberg would like to pursue a career in music.
"I would love to conduct an orchestra someday," he said.
