Adam Jackson is Rosemount Rotary's Student of the Month

Adam Jackson is Rosemount Rotary's March Student of the Month.

Rosemount High School senior Adam Jackson, son of Joel and Nicki Jackson, is Rotary Club of Rosemount's March Student of the Month.

Adam is perhaps most known for his achievements as a wrestler at RHS. He was runner-up at state in the 152-pound weight class the last two years, named to the Guillotine's Academic First Team and received a number of honors from his team - including MVP two years in a row. He will wrestle at the US Air Force Academy next year.

Adam was nominated to the Air Force Academy by Congressman John Kline and was very deliberate in making his choice. He attended a leadership camp at West Point Academy after his junior year, but realized the Air Force was a better fit for him after visiting both.

In addition to his athletic credentials, Adam is a 4.0 student, is ranked first in his class, is a National Honor Society member, a Spanish Honor Society member, and serves as student council secretary. Adam also strives to give back to his community as much as he can. He has worked as a tutor, organized and participated in a number of blood drives, volunteered at Lewis House in Eagan and has participated on mission trips with the Church of St. Joseph.

Perhaps Adam's most notable achievement, though, is his reputation. His parents, coaches, teachers and friends all comment on his incredible work ethic, drive and character.

Each month the Rotary Club of Rosemount recognizes a student who exemplifies Rotary International's motto of Service Above Self. The club meets for lunch at noon Thursday at Fireside Restaurant. Visitors are welcome.
