The Rotary Club of Westerville, which sponsors a Student of the Month program, recognized recipients at a luncheon at Villa Milano held on Thursday, March 6. March students are: Morgan Beck, Westerville Central High School; and Katelyn Pollock, St. Francis DeSales.
The purpose of the program is twofold: to recognize outstanding students who have distinguished themselves by serving their school and to expose them to the Rotary Club and its ideal of “Service Above Self.” Students selected join Rotarians for lunch every week for a month, and have the opportunity to interact with members.
Beck, a junior at Westerville Central, holds a grade point average of 4.54 and her favorite subjects of study are Language, Composition, Psychology, Chemistry and Art. She is currently involved in the National Honor Society, Key Club, and is a staff member for “Arts Alive.” She also sings with Jazz Central and participates in the symphonic mixed choir. Beck volunteers at the Westerville Public Library. She hopes to major in Early Childhood Education and eventually become an elementary school teacher.
Pollock is a senior at St. Francis DeSales who holds a grade point average of 4.231. She is studying Advanced Biology, Calculus, AP English, Chemistry, AP Psychology and Physics. She, too, is a member of the National Honor Society, along with the French National Honor Society. Pollock is a Math Club officer, a student ambassador core team member, and a football and basketball varsity cheerleader. She has volunteered in soup kitchens, at Vacation Bible School, at Cheer Camp for Kids and as a canned food collector for the Westerville Area Resource Ministry. She plans to attend The Ohio State University and major in Pharmacology.
