Easton Silva Named April Rotary Student of the Month
Terra State Community College student Easton Silva has been named the College’s Rotary Student of the Month for April.
Silva lives in Fremont, Ohio, with his family. He has two older siblings, a brother and a sister, and enjoys spending family time with them snow skiing and snowboarding, mountain bike riding, hiking, and rock climbing. Easton will graduate from Fremont Ross High School in June 2023 and has received the MVP award twice in Track and Field for Pole Vaulting. He has achieved perfect attendance since the third grade.
While attending high school, Easton chose to join the Manufacturing Technology program at Terra State Community College. His family lives on a small farm with a workshop, where he gained his knowledge of tools and welding, as well as helping his dad, a land surveyor for the Sandusky County Engineer’s office. He credits his dad for teaching him how to operate equipment and for his learning experiences.
Easton started Boy Scouts in second grade and was awarded Eagle Scout in 2022. His Eagle Scout project was cleaning up mile markers along Route 20. Growing up, he has been actively involved with the Association of Letter Carrier Food Drive and helps feed the community during the summer at Share and Care.
Veronica Miller, Welding Instructor, nominated Easton. “Easton has been an excellent student. He has never missed class and has always been prepared when arriving early. He is a high school senior working to earn not only a high school diploma, but also an associate degree in manufacturing technology”.
“I chose Manufacturing Technology because I enjoy working with the different equipment the program offers. It is amazing what you can make with just metal, the proper tools, and knowledge”, said Silva.
After graduation, Easton plans to continue to work and use what he has learned at Terra State Community College while employed at J.S. Fabrication located in Fremont, Ohio. This fall, Easton will attend Ohio Northern University to major in Engineering and plans to find a job working in fabrication during his downtime.
