Queen Creek student wins Rotary Club scholarship

Posted

The Rotary Club of Sun Lakes, RCSL, extends congratulations to the winners of the Rotary Club’s Annual 2022 High School Service Above Self Scholarships. One of the winners is from Queen Creek, according to a press release.

Brooklyn Acton-Myers will graduate from Queen Creek’s Camille Casteel High School which she has been attending since seventh grade. She has attended Chandler Unified Schools since kindergarten.

She has served as the team captain for both the 2020 and 2021 season for Top Gun Cheer. 

Acton-Myers also has spent the bulk of her service and volunteering serving as a cheer coach to 3-to-7-year old’s three times a week, as well as coaching cheer to students with special needs. 

Brooklyn will be attending University of California San Diego studying human biology to become an orthodontist. 

According to the RCSL Scholarship Committee Chair Leo Schlueter, the $2,000 scholarship payments will be sent directly to the school/university the student will be attending this fall.

A panel of judges reviewed and scored applications from area high school seniors. Each application included a 300-word essay that provided the student’s beliefs and understanding of what “service above self” means; teacher recommendations; and student academic standing data.

Also, RCSL’s selections were based on each student exhibiting exemplary acts of service and character.
