Student of the Month

At this Wednesday's meeting, we recognized Chanwook Park as our Rotary Student of the Month in "Academic Excellence" for Henry M. Jackson High School!   
Chanwook has maintained a perfect GPA of 4.0 that includes 12 Advanced Placement/UW courses as well as advanced computer science courses and Korean language courses.  He will be receiving the Washington State Seal of Biliteracy and has submitted a research paper that was reviewed by all the major Ivy League schools. He was elected Secretary of the ASB executive board, and in the Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) he was a state finalist in the "Community Service Project," and a national finalist for "Organizational Leadership." He also served as the president of Key Club, the school's largest club and volunteer organization, where he lead projects that raised funds to support causes such as the Kiwanis Children's Cancer Program (KCCP) and the Thirst Project. 
Chanwook will be joining the Yale University class of 2024 and is currently planning on majoring in economics and political science. Chanwook's goal is to become a U.S. Foreign Service Officer.
Congratulations Chanwook!
