Junior Qi Li has been named one of the students of the month.
When he was just nine years old, Li discovered his passion for music. His parents got him into playing the piano after receiving one for Christmas.
Since then he has continued playing piano and is the rehearsal pianist for the school musical. In addition to participating in the school music programs, Li is also a York College prep piano student and a musician at his church.
Li plays the trumpet in the Red Lion marching band and is a participant in Madrigal Choir.
“I started playing the trumpet because I wanted to get involved in music at school,” Li said.
Not only is he involved in music but he is also a member in National Honor Society and the historian for the robotics club. He joined the club because he, “wanted to help start something new.”
He plans to go to college to major in information technology and hopes to attend Penn State.

Junior Carrie Knight has been declared one of the two Rotary Club Students of the Month for December. Her academic involvement and achievements made her a deserving candidate for this position.
Since the start of her high school career, she has been on the Distinguished Honor Roll. “I make sure to do my homework and study a lot,” Knight said. She strives to do her best in each class she’s involved in. “I got a physics tutor this year and it helped me a lot.” Despite receiving straight A’s, Carrie is still an everyday student like her peers.
Carrie credits her academic success to her older sister Kelsi who graduated from Red Lion Area Senior High School in 2015. Her sister has been her role model ever since she was young. “She always had Distinguished Honor Roll in high school. She’s probably the reason I do well,” Knight said.
Aside from academic achievements, Carrie likes to spend time with her her family and friends. She lives on a farm and has an interest in farm culture. She has a pet cow named Maggie that she likes to feed and spend time with. She also enjoys taking pictures at home.
Photography has been an interest of Carrie’s since sixth grade. “I’d like to go to York College to major in business and minor in photography,” Knight said. “It’s close to home and my sister currently goes there.” She hopes to have a profession that involves taking pictures when she is older.
