The Prescott Valley Rotary Club, Prescott Valley Town Council and Bradshaw Mountain High School honored senior Tyler Silva as Student of the Month at the March 27 council meeting.

"We ask all our students to be involved," said BMHS Principal Kort Miner. "Tyler has taken it to the next level."

In addition to taking Advanced Placement classes, dual enrollment classes through Yavapai College and earning a 4.156 Grade Point Average, Tyler also is a member of numerous clubs on and off campus. This year he joined the Air Force Junior ROTC program through Prescott High School and is a member of its Kitty Hawk Air Society.

In addition, he competes at the state level with the Health Occupation Students of America, where he placed fourth in Medical Math at the 2013 state competition, and with DECA (business and marketing student organization). He is a member of the National Honor Society; Mu Alpha Theta, a national honors math society; and LINK Crew, juniors and seniors helping incoming freshmen.

He has graduated from the Yavapai College Computer Networking program with certifications as Net+ and A+ technician.

Academics may play a large role in Tyler's life, but he still leaves time to serve as captain on the town league basketball team for the past four years, and maintaining a daily workout routine. Also during the past four years, Tyler has worked part time for Outlaw Larry's as a firearms salesman and computer data entry employee.

Community service work is another important aspect of his personal life, and his hours of volunteering includes assisted living facilities, tutoring, Operation Clothe-a-Child, American Cancer Society, picking up trash, car washes, and church activities.

Tyler's mother, Melinda Silva, said she never had to ask her son to do his homework; he has always done his best.

"He's a great kid, and he takes after his dad," quipped Larry Silva, Tyler's father.

Future plans include attending Arizona State University in the fall majoring in biochemistry. Tyler plans to become a physician's assistant.
