Meet AHS’ Ian Rivera – A role model to Amsterdam youth

Amsterdam High School senior Ian Rivera returned to his former elementary school this spring to visit with Tecler students and make some new friends. Now a member of the Class of 2022, Ian came to Amsterdam from Puerto Rico at the age of 9 knowing very little English. He says the teachers and principal at Tecler helped him find his way in life and he wants to give back the same to other youngsters that are like him. Today, Ian is a role model to many.
