Amy Nickerson, a junior at Mystic Valley Regional Charter School, has been recognized for her exceptional commitment to academics, extracurricular activities and her community.
An avid performer, Amy is a member of multiple musical groups including the Young Opera Company of New England and the Handel and Haydn Society Young Women’s Chorus. Her commitment to music is evident as she will be performing Vivaldi’s Gloria at Symphony Hall in Boston with the Handel and Haydn Society chorus this March.
When Amy is not practicing music, the International Baccalaureate Diploma candidate and her Girl Scout troop are volunteering with senior citizens and supporting veterans within the Melrose community.
Balancing academics with extracurricular activities can be challenging, but this High School Hero plans accordingly and maintains an organized schedule. Amy also attributes having a healthy diet to her success.
For now Amy is focusing on her academics and music and eventually plans to major in Vocal Performance with a concentration in Baroque music. Ultimately she hopes to teach classical music to children, just as her mother did.
We wish you all the luck on your future endeavors, Amy! Break a leg!
