Aiden Ingenthron accepts a Student of the Month award from the Rotary Club of Castle Rock. With him are Wes Schuneman, president of the club, left, his father Jason, mother Autumn, and Castle View High School Principal Rex Corr.
Aiden Ingenthron has been selected as the November Rotary Club of Castle Rock Student of the Month.
Ingenthron, a senior at Castle View High School was introduced to the club recently by Castle View Principal Rex Corr who called the student one of the most accomplished scholars in the school’s history.
He said Ingenthron was a skilled athlete, a consciences citizen, is successful in every endeavor and leaves things better than they were before he was involved.
Ingenthron participated in rocketry and rock climbing, making nationals in rocketry and state finals in rock climbing. He also won numerous academic awards including a National Merit Scholar Commendation, AP Scholar with Distinction and certificates of excellence in math and science. He has taken more than 17 Advance Placement classes and is number one in his class with a 4.33 grade point average. He is a member of the National Honors Society.
He has completed enough course work to give him 40 hours of college credit.
Corr said Ingenthron takes every opportunity he has to help those in the school and the community. 
He said teachers said Ingenthron has an infectious humility, grace and is kind and funny. They say he is the most dedicated student they have seen. He recalled one incident in which Ingenthron rolled his car in a snowstorm and called his father to get him to school.
An example of his community spirit is when he went to the Douglas County Commission to speak about the potential pollution of an asphalt plant being considered.
Ingenthron told the club he is considering attending either Colorado College or an Ivy League school to major in science and math. 
“I want to make a difference in the world,” Ingenthron said.
