Our Jackson High School Student of the Year and Maria and Steve Matthews Scholarship Award Recipient 

Our Youth Services Chair, Becky Daily, presenting the award to Kenneth Clarke

Kenneth Clarke was recognized at this Wednesday's meeting as our club's Jackson High School Student of the Year and receives the Maria and Steve Matthews Scholarship Award.  Kenneth was chosen for his tremendous reflection of the Jackson Way: Pride, Excellence, and Character.  He has maintained a GPA of 3.945 over his four years at Jackson High School, and he has done so while challenging himself with 7 Advanced Placement and University of Washington courses.  He is a well-rounded individual, serving as an officer in the school's National Honor Society and the Model U.N. Club.  He participated in Mock Trial for several years as well as Knowledge Bowl and recreational soccer. In addition to volunteering with his church on a regular basis, Kenneth has tutored students at Heatherwood Middle School during each of his four years in high school. 

 Kenneth will be attending American University in Washington D.C. this fall where he plans to major in International Studies with a focus in Environmental Sustainability and Global Health.  Congratulations Kenneth!
