Simona Stalev is an outstanding leader in the Schaumburg High School community, showing exemplary devotion to her studies. She fully engages herself in the classroom, making invaluable contributions to discussions and exploring the content to make it her own. Simona balances demanding Advanced Placement alongside coursework in the arts. As a visual artist and musician, Simona shows exceptional creativity and a keen attention to detail. She is a true lover of learning, finding joy in both the process and final product.
Simona Stalev is also an active leader in the SHS community outside of the classroom. As a drum major for the marching and pep bands, she regularly leads over two hundred students in rehearsals and performances with a sense of overwhelming dedication. Simona’s peers are eager to work with her because of the kindness she shows and the personal connections she makes with others. Simona also serves as the Band President, guiding the student leadership team and helping set the direction of the program. She is also a member of the National Honor Society, Modern Music Masters, Principal’s Advisory Board, Spanish Club, and Theater Guides.
Simona Stalev has had a great impact on many individuals at SHS; however, she would counter that she is even more grateful for the inspiration she has received from the people around her. Simona plans to major in business with a minor in art at the collegiate level. Given her outstanding work over the past four years, we are excited to see the path she takes in the future. A true servant leader in our school, we are proud to announce Simona Stalev as the February Senior of the Month.
