The London Rotary Club is pleased to honor senior Natalie Zabloudil as London High School’s January Student of the Month.
Students of the month are selected by school administrators based on their academic and extracurricular achievement and positive character.
Natalie has a 4.13 grade point average, is ranked 21st in her class, and states her favorite class is physics. She is the senior class vice president, a two-year member of National Honor Society, and currently serves as National Honor Society vice president.
Natalie is a four-year member of the varsity volleyball team and has received the following recognition in volleyball: third team All-Ohio, All League Special Mention 2020, All League first team 2021-2022, Co-player of the Year 2022, and first team All District 2021-2022.

When asked to name a school staff person who has served as an inspiration, Natalie named Spanish teacher Profe Janelle Varveris.
“Profe Varveris is my inspiration because she goes for what she wants and always has a smile on her face,” she said.
About Natalie, Varveris said, “Natalie Zabloudil is an exemplary student, and I am so proud to hear of this accomplishment. I have known Natalie since her freshman year when I taught her Spanish 1, and I currently have the pleasure of teaching her Spanish 4.
“In addition to her success in Spanish, she also has shown to be an outstanding athlete and was even voted to run the L at the homecoming game. I know Natalie will excel in all of her future endeavors because she is a driven and determined person.”
Natalie plans to attend William Paterson University of New Jersey to study criminology and play volleyball. She is the daughter of Bob and Renae Zabloudil of London.
