Andrew Buttolph, named the 2014 Scholar of the Year at a ceremony Wednesday night at the Puritan Backroom, is the second of three brothers to win the honor — his older brother, Michael, won the distinction in 2011. Buttolph’s win, like his brother’s before him, came after he’d been selected as a Scholar of the Month three times.
And he may not be the last. Buttolph’s younger brother, Stephen, a freshman, was a candidate for the top honor this year after being selected the March Scholar of the Month. The other candidates were Samuel Vaal of Manchester High School West, Karina Ithier of Manchester High School West, Aidan Molnar of Hopkinton High School, Seunghyun “Angela” Yeo of Moultonborough Academy, Kayla Vieten of Gilford High School and Lilly Friedman of Plymouth Regional High School.
Buttolph, who is applying for admission to Cornell University, is involved in so many school and extracurricular activities that he needed three sheets of paper to list them all. He plays the trumpet, is on the ski-jumping team and trivia club and is a member of the student senate. He’s a member of the National Honor Society, has received the national Presidential volunteer service award three times and is an Eagle Scout.
“There is nothing better in education than to celebrate student success,” she said. “You are people who have amazing futures ahead of you. You are all the kind of people who we want to come back to New Hampshire after your journeys.”
