The Youth Achiever of the Month Award was established in September to allow residents to nominate who they believe to be outstanding young Hooksett residents so they can be honored by the Council. Council member Donald Winterton said while presenting Cote with his certificate that the award has quickly become one of his favorite parts of being a town councilor.
In honoring Cote, Winterton pointed out that the studious musically inclined jock plays both the tuba and trombone in West’s concert band, marching band and jazz band, is a member of the National Honor Society and captain of the school’s hockey and lacrosse teams.
Cote, whose age belies his 6’2 height and full beard, said being given the award was an honor.
“It’s definitely nice to be recognized for everything I do. I have to do everything I do very carefully. It really comes down to knowing what you need to do and when it needs to be done by or you fall behind,” Cote said.
“As most people know (West) is the smallest of the Manchester schools, but I don’t think it takes away from the quality of the education there. I probably wouldn’t be where I am if I went to another school,” Cote said.
“As parents we are more than happy with the Manchester high schools, the quality of education has been outstanding for all our children,” Tom said.
Speaking to the award, Lynn said she was very thankful it was created because it helps to celebrate children like her son who are great achievers but very modest.
“I want to study music therapy. I have always loved music and people and I have been fascinated by how it impacts people’s minds and thoughts.”
