Stevenson School Senior Shops First Novel While Working on Second

Accomplished Stevenson School senior Alex Welton was recently featured in The Monterey County Herald (Student Author Awaits next Chapter).

Welton has finished his first novel Dawn and is currently working on a second novel “set in 1940′s China.” (MCH)

A disciplined student, Welton organizes his time and focuses on being productive. He worked at least five hours a day while working on Dawn during his summer vacation. (MCH)

“…Welton is a straight-A student who played three years of high school tennis and two years of water polo, became an Eagle Scout at age 16, has a weekly radio show at Stevenson, and has composed several piano and orchestral pieces…” Welton’s SAT scores (perfect in math and reading, and almost perfect in the writing portion) qualified his nomination for Presidential Scholar award.” (MCH)

Welton told Monterey County Herald writer Latih Agha, “‘My friends like to joke that I failed nap time.’” (MCH)

Still finding his voice, Welton seems to love story telling and his still searching for medium that best fits him- movies, books, etc. Speaking again to writer Agha, “‘I have many mediums through which I would like to express them (stories)….I can be interested in so many things…It’s going to be tough to narrow it down.’”
