18 Under 18 Honoree: Ethan Povlot

Jewish Atlanta 2020's 18 Under 18 Honoree: Ethan Povlot, 17, North Atlanta High School

Ethan is intelligent, thoughtful, kind and extraordinarily involved in the community. He was a key participant in AJC’s 2018-2019 Leaders for Tomorrow cohort. Articulate in expressing his views, Ethan has an understanding of issues affecting the Jewish community that surpasses that of a normal high school student. In 2016, at the age of 13, Ethan started a company called Trash Can Movers. He brings neighbors’ full trash cans to the curb on trash day and returns them when emptied. Ethan has been fencing for four years and has been on the varsity high school team for three years. As a junior, he was elected captain of the team of 10 men and nine women. In addition, Ethan has a passion for robotics and has been a member of the North Atlanta Warbotz Robotics Team for three years. Through his hard work and dedication, he was chosen as chief programmer, responsible for writing Java code that controls the robot and he collaborates with the full team, including the design and build team. His weekly mentoring of the middle school robotics team was a foundation for being elected to lead the Warbotz team.
