Matt Howard
Avon High School

It's impossible to look at Matt Howard's resume and narrow down the one subject he's most interested it.
<br><br>
He enjoys nature and hiking as an Eagle Scout and founder of his school's outdoors club. He excels in graphic design and reporting as co-editor-in-chief of the high school yearbook.
<br><br>
He umpires for Avon's Little League, does web development for a California start-up company and he's passionate about choral singing.
<br><br>
And he still has time for a part-time job at Larsen Ace Hardware.
<br><br>
As the Avon High School valedictorian heads to the University of Pennsylvania this fall to study engineering, he plans to continue every one of those interests through different student organizations.
<br><br>
In high school, Howard was able to take his interest in nature and the outdoors to form a club promoting outdoor activity. The club publicized the area's trails and forests, and improved them through community service project.
<br><br>
For the yearbook, he produced a 120-page book and two DVD's worth of interviews, photos and footage of athletes and different school events, such as prom and pep rally. He supervised the filming and editing, as well as the graphic design.
<br><br>
Howard is a Connecticut all-state singer, as well as a member of the Connecticut Children's Choir based out of The University of Hartford's Hartt School.
<br><br>
"I have different interests and skill sets, but I try to use them all toward different applications," he said.
<br><br>
He looks forward to studying in Philadelphia, which he said is a diverse city.
<br><br>
"I want to take a more active role in the world around me," he said. "I'm excited for new opportunities, and want to go out and see more of the world than what I've been able to see in central Connecticut."
