Hometown: Honeoye Falls
School: Honeoye Falls-Lima High School
Peter is an Eagle Scout, a member of the National High Honor Society, and captain of his school’s Robotics Team. He also is the student representative on the Honeoye Falls-Lima District Teaching Learning and Technology Committee. Peter has been described as a “problem solver, passionate leader, and inspirational visionary.” Proof of this is the creation of the online HFL Sports Network, which televises live athletic events. For this project he worked with available electronic equipment and Internet connections and recruited fellow students to play key roles as producers and camera operators. Now the athletes’ families worldwide can see them in action.
What the judges had to say:
“Peter proves that through collaboration, hard work, and persistence, anything is possible. And also that the head of the robotics team can also be a football player and produce a sports TV show. Take that, teen stereotypes. Well done, Peter!”
