The Mason High School senior was nominated by his science and Spanish teachers, Liz Imrie and Jane Margraf.
The teachers praised Mintz’s academic achievements, which include induction in the National Honor Society, in which he serves as vice president. Mintz also plays on the volleyball team and is a summer camp counselor.
“Peter is a very involved young man. Academically, he challenges himself to go above and beyond every day in the classroom. Outside of class, Peter is a wonderful role model and truly one of our school leaders,” said Margraf.
The Kiwanis Club presented Mintz with $50 and a certificate at a recent meeting. He is the son of Howard and Ann Mintz of Mason.
