Posted on 03/11/2016
Daniel Lovell's star has shown bright in his four years of high school and the Pepperell High senior added some luster by garnering two STAR designations recently.  Lovell was named the STAR student at Pepperell High and he tabbed science teacher Jonathan Ingram as his STAR teacher.  Lovell was also named the STAR Student for Floyd County at the most recent meeting of the Rome Exchange Club.  The award was presented by Al Hodge, president of the Greater Rome Chamber of Commerce.  The county title will allow Lovell to move on to regional STAR competition later this month.

To be named a STAR student, a senior must have the highest SAT score in the school on one test date through November prior to graduation.  The student's SAT scores must be equal to or higher than the national average, and the senior must be in the top 10 percent or top 10 students in the senior class based on grade point average.

The STAR teacher is selected by the STAR student for having made the most significant contribution to the student's scholastic development.

Lovell has excelled in the classroom and in academic honors.  He has led the Pepperell High Academic Decathlon team to two consecutive victories in the Floyd County competition.  Lovell was also highest individual scoring student in the competitions.  He recently placed third in Healthcare Administration at the state Future Business Leaders of America competition to advance to Nationals for the third consecutive year.  Lovell was a nominee to Governor's Honors in 2014, an AP Scholar with Honors, and a National Merit commended student.

Not only has Lovell been active at Pepperell, he is also busy lending his talents to the community.  He developed a youth outreach program to teach mechanical/robotic programming through Silver Creek Presbyterian Church, and developed an application for the training of Emergency Medical Technicians.  His training application generates random emergency medical situations called Dynamic Emergency Technician Simulation or DETS.  Lovell is also chief student aid in Pepperell's athletic training department working with the school's athletic trainer.  

Lovell is interested in attending Johns Hopkins University, Yale or Northwestern after graduation.  He plans to study pre-medicine.
