ACT STUDENT OF THE MONTH
Making an Impression
Emily Chromik is now a senior and Audio Video major at ACT. She has been a huge asset to the video department contributing to a number of projects. Regardless of the difficult circumstances she has endured outside of school, Emily continues to help others be successful in her chosen art classes, while holding herself to a high standard.
Dan Boisvert, Audio Video teacher says, “Emily exhibits a keen sense of responsibility and accountability. She helps students in video by providing positive reinforcement.” She has taken on a leadership role for Community Video Projects class and DMV projects and has helped foster an optimistic viewpoint of ACT’s community both inside and outside of school. Emily holds others accountable for their behavior and performance to ensure her group functions properly.
Emily has created commercials for local businesses. One commercial she produced individually and the other was made with a partner in class. Last year Emily helped with the ACT recruiting video which is used when Tracy, our Principal visits sending town schools. Each year, Emily has had a video in VideoFest performances. Dan Boisvert also noted, “In the past six months there has been a great growth in her maturity. Her communication with staff and students is effective and professional.”
In addition to her full academic and video course load at ACT, Emily is also taking a Women’s Studies course at Eastern CT State University. She has a job and works between 10-15 hours a week. Her ability to manage time and demonstrate success in multiple facets has not gone unnoticed. Emily is looking to pursue Women’s Studies as a major and attend a four year college or university once she graduates from ACT.
