News Release – Loveland Schools
The Loveland City School District is pleased to announce that Daniel Zamagias, member of the senior class at Loveland High School (LHS), has been selected as Student of the Year by the Rotary Club of Northeast Cincinnati. In 2018, Zamagias attended the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards – an intensive leadership training – and he served as a student delegate to the Rotary Club World Affairs Seminar in Waukesha, Wisconsin, in June 2019.
“I’m honored to be selected for the Student of the Year Award and for the amazing opportunities the Rotary Club has offered me,” said Zamagias. “The Worlds Affairs Seminar this summer was truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience. More than 300 delegates from over 30 nations attended the seminar for a full week of discussion and activities around the promises and perils of social media. It was really interesting to share views and work through issues, like ethical dilemmas and the economic and political ramifications of social media use.”
Zamagias, an LHS varsity soccer player and member of the National Honor Society, was also chosen by Loveland High School to be a student delegate to the Loveland City Council, which involved shadowing a council member and subsequently running a council meeting in accordance with city government rules and regulations. He has volunteered for several organizations; among others, serving as a photographer for the Joe Nuxhall Miracle League and as a counselor in training at the Cincinnati Nature Center.
Zamagias’ future ambitions involve a college education in psychology and biology to later undertake research on mental illness. At the annual Rotary Northeast Cincinnati Community Awards Dinner on Thursday, October 17, he received a $5,000 scholarship as part of the Student of the Year Award.
