Senior Spotlight: Stephen Spicuzzi

Congratulations to senior Stephen Spicuzzi is graduating summa cum laude as one of the top students in his class. He will be attending the University of Michigan and plans to major in one of the sciences.

Stephen has been active with several DLS Clubs, including four years with the DLS Robotics team, working on the CAD (Computer Assisted Design) team since his freshman year. 

He has also been a member of the National Honor Society and Student Council, and became involved with the DLS Medical Club after earning a 5 on his Advanced Placement (AP) Biology exam. 

Stephen has also taken several other AP classes, including U.S. History, American Government, Calculus AB, Calculus BC, Chemistry, MicroEconomics, English Language and Composition, English Literature and Composition, and Psychology. 

His favorite class has been AP Psychology, and Stephen cites Mr. Rob Black, Mr. Dave Kirck, and Mr. Brad Robinson as his favorite teachers, although he says, “I basically like all of my teachers a lot.” 

Faculty member Mr. Thaier Mukhtar has high praise for Stephen. 

“Stephen Spicuzzi is an academically driven young man who can accomplish so much in his endeavors,” Mukhtar says. “He comes from a great family who have instilled the foundations in him to be so successful. He was one of my highest-achieving students in AP Government and earned a 5 on the AP Exam. Stephen is a perfectionist and does not stop or slow down unless it's perfect. He sets high goals for himself, and achieves them.” 

In addition to his heavy class load, Stephen has worked for the last two years at the Christian Financial Credit Union (CFCU). He took Honors Banking as a junior and was able to take teller training during the summer of 2022. He continued working for CFCU on occasional Saturdays during the school year and all summer in 2023. 

Counselor Mr. Anthony Albani said, “It has been my pleasure to have worked with Steve during his time at DLS. He has always challenged himself to be his best as a student and as a peer. Academically, he has put the work in to stand out among his peers. He has been third in his class since his freshman year. I hope he has valued our talks as much as I did; his personal growth was great to see each year. He will be successful at Michigan and wherever path he chooses to follow after his time at Michigan.”

Stephen attended St. Thecla Grade School and came to DLS due to the influence of his father Steve, DLS Class 1991. 

His younger brother James is a current DLS sophomore. Stephen’s two older sisters are both graduates of Regina High School. Stephen’s mother Emily has been a regular volunteer with the DLS Advancement Department. 

The family lives in Clinton Township.
