Thornton and Dr Maitland


Avon Grove Lions Club November Student of the Month winner is senior, James (Steven) Thornton.

Throughout his high school years, Steven completed community service with variety of  groups, teams, and organizations. Steven just earned the rank of Eagle Scout in Troop 18 in West Grove after being in scouts since the fifth grade. Steven collaborates with many scouts who have been working on their Eagle Scout Rank, helping them with their Eagle Scout Projects. In the Spring of 2019, Steven volunteered with the Avon Grove Wildcats Lacrosse program as a coach, which was a great experience where he learned strong leadership skills. He's also volunteered at events at his church and swim team.

Steven was a Mentor in the AGCS Wolf Pack Mentoring program, which pairs elementary students with high school students who mentor them throughout the year. 

After high school, Steven will be attending the Pennsylvania College of Technology in Williamsport, PA. There he will complete the 2+2 program in Diesel Technology & Automotive Management programs.

Congratulations, Steven!!
