Ten Thomas Jefferson High School students were recognized by the West Jefferson Hills School Board for a variety of recent achievements, service and dedication.

TJ Jaguar LEAP leaders
TJ freshman golfer Maggie Allan
TJ senior officers Kendall Pielin and Shanice McNeil

Nine students were lauded for their efforts in successfully organizing, running and leading the Freshman Jaguar LEAP orientation program in August, prior to the start of classes. LEAP stands for Learn, Empower, Achieve, Persevere.

The Freshman Jaguar LEAP leaders recognized by the Board were: Jacob Christian, Kiley Dorrian, Emma Martinis, Shanice McNeil, Kendall Pielin, Jillian Piscitelli, Drew Schliebner, Sydney Schreiber and Gavin Sweeney.

The TJ freshmen orientation included fun team-building activities, small group information sessions, a club and activities fair, hearing from WJHSD Superintendent Dr. Janet Sardon and the TJ principals, breakfast and lunch, a Q&A session, touring the high school and the students locating where their classes would be held. The team building activities included two obstacle courses, bumper balls and relays.

Also recognized during the Board meeting was freshman Maggie Allan, a member of the Jaguars’ Golf team. In her second career match, Allan scored a hole-in-one at the 145-yard, first hole at the Mt. Lebanon Golf Course in a match between TJ and Mt. Lebanon. Allan’s successful season has continued since her August 18 ace, as she has qualified for the WPIAL Girls 3A Individual Golf Championships, to be played October 4 at Valley Brook Country Club. 

Senior class representatives Shanice McNeil, the class president, and Kendall Pielin, a Student Council officer, provided the Board with an update on some of the activities, achievements, and upcoming events at the high school.
