Student of the Month

September 2020

Congratulations to this month's TransOptions & Visions Federal Credit Union Student of the Month: Ralph Rocco!

Ralph Rocco just graduated as class valedictorian for Sussex Tech's Class of 2020. He's dreamed of being a commercial airline pilot since he was a little boy going on vacations with his family. This month he will start attending Emery Riddle Aeronautical University in Daytona, Florida. In addition to class valedictorian, Ralph was also class president, president of the student council and vice president of Sussex Tech's Chapter of the National Honor Society. Last year Ralph helped build a submarine while in shop class. Then, he traveled to Maryland to help race the sub in a national competition. Ralph and a group of other Sussex Tech students recently enjoyed volunteering at area nursing homes. They visited and read to the residents. He was nominated by his mom Darlene. Ralph was recently awarded a certificate of recognition along with (2) $50 gift cards from TransOptions and Visions Federal Credit Union.

Each month of the school year, TransOptions honors an exceptional student in Sussex County by awarding the "TransOptions Student of the Month Award." The award is given to students recognized for their scholastic achievements or community involvement and is presented live, on-air, during the "Morning Show with Steve Andrews", on WSUS 102.3.

Award recipients receive an Amazon.com gift card and a framed certificate of recognition. Their comments are recorded and replayed on-air throughout the month as a celebration of their achievement.
