Schaumburg High School is proud to recognize Jacob Hacm as the March Senior of the Month. Jacob Hacm excels in every capacity from direct classroom interaction with teachers and students to extra-curricular athletics and activities. As a scholar, an athlete, and as a debater, Jacob has honed a myriad of talents and skills to evolve into a Renaissance person and our March Senior of the Month.
In class, Jacob improves the culture and climate of any room. His relaxed attitude, coupled with his razor-sharp mind, allows him to participate and elevate the academic rigor of everyone throughout any entire course – in any discipline from Math and Science to the Humanities. In fact, many students often come to him to revise essays, to solve mathematical inequalities, and to consider scientific quandaries because they recognize his extraordinary aptitude. To this day, he still willingly helps other students even though it does not directly benefit his situation.
He helps because he cares.
His selfless nature and his undying dedication won him the trust of everyone on the Schaumburg Track Team and the Presidential Election of the Schaumburg High School Debate Team. Jacob Hacm is truly a man of the people; and, like all good presidents before him (both political and educational), he wants what is best for his constituents. Jacob will root for everyone on the Track Team and develop research with everyone on the Debate Team – even when he could be practicing and researching for himself. More vitally, Jacob helps cultivate the self-confidence of Schaumburg’s freshmen and sophomores because he knows that they are the future of our school and that we need them to help embody the spirit of “We Are SHS” every day. These students sincerely know that he believes in them when he willingly gives up his free time; and, while it seems cliché, they know that his presence is priceless.
Over the past three years, Jacob has improved so much, due to his dedication to our students, so he has been considered for many prestigious honors within our building. How fitting that we recognize him as our March Senior of the Month! Next fall, Jacob plans to major in Engineering at the University of Illinois or at the University of Michigan. Any school will be lucky to add Jacob Hacm to its student body because of his ability to balance the competing values of citizenry while upholding the integrity of everyone who is involved.
