Family leaves its mark on NT High
Sarah and her three sisters were all members of the National Honor Society, being named to the honor roll 25 of a possible 32 times, selected as Quality Students of the Tonawandas, star athletes in their own right and each won numerous scholarships including sweeping the Dom Polski Social Club Scholarship awards.
The young Kielaszek was a scholar-athlete for two years, active in the drama club, and has scholarships from the Dom Polski and Drake School PTA under her belt. She will be headed to SUNY Brockport in the fall where she will major in business administration.
The oldest sister, Katelyn, now 26, set the bar quite high by attending prestigious New York University in New York City and graduated with a degree in music and business. She was a varsity letter winner in softball and tennis at NTHS, was an honor student all four years and graduated 11th in her class.
Emily, 22, is next in line. She graduated a few weeks ago with a degree in education, majoring in math from Niagara University. At NTHS, Emily excelled in softball and was named a scholar-athlete while being on the honor roll all four years. She also starred for the drama club, focusing mainly on dance.
Rachel, 19, was outstanding in softball and bowling and was named the team Most Valuable Player in both sports. She was also an All-Niagara Frontier League bowler. She was the drama club vice president and secretary in consecutive years. She transferred to Niagara County Community College from D’Youville and will begin classes in the fall.
“This is a great family,” Dean Vallas, the faculty advisor of NTHS’s Drama Club, said. “You would not believe the number of projects they helped out on.”
