School: Treser will be a senior at North Hills High School in the fall.
Hobbies/interests: Treser plays varsity basketball at North Hills. She participates in the National Honor Society; Hands for Service, which does volunteer work in the community, and in the French Club.
Noteworthy: Treser recently was selected to receive the Harvard Prize Book by the Harvard Club of Western Pennsylvania. The Prize Book is awarded to an outstanding student in a junior class who displays excellence in scholarship and high character combined with achievement in other fields. North Hills High School gifted teacher Regina Moorby and school counselor Nicole Weber nominated Sarah.
Quote: “I am thrilled to receive the Harvard Book Award, and I appreciate Ms. Moorby and Ms. Weber for nominating me. I would specifically like to thank Ms. Moorby for working with me over the past two years as my educational adviser to advance my skills in school and in extracurricular activities. Additionally, had it not been for my parents and siblings' encouragement of good studies, I would not be the driven person I am today.”

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.
We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
