Rotary Club of Renton Youth of the Month

Good afternoon, RHS 12th graders! I hope that this finds you doing well!

The Rotary Club of Renton traditionally recognizes a Student of the Month from each RSD high school, September through May. While the program had been paused as a result of the pandemic, I am excited to announce that the Rotary Club of Renton is now prepared to celebrate Students of the Months, from September through December!!! That means I need you to apply! 

The Rotary Youth of the Month (RYOM) for September is always the Senior Class President. For the months of October – May, students (you!) will need to apply.

Download the application from the Rotary Club of Renton website. The application may pull from information that you may already be gathering for other applications. It can take about an hour to complete. If you have questions about how to complete your application, please let me know.

Applications received afterwards will be need to be received by December to be considered for the January RYOM, by January for the February RYOM and so on.

Selected students will receive a certificate, plus are able to showcase this accomplishment on applications. Beginning in January, there may even be the option of joining the Rotary Club of Renton Zoom luncheon.

Questions? As always, reach out to me!

All my best,
Ms. Fulmer

Rotary Student of the Month 2020-2021

Catherine Dang

September Student of the Month

Thank you for the honor of being selected as the Rotary Youth of the Month for September. I am a senior and a fulltime Running Start student at Bellevue College carrying a GPA of 3.5 
Over the course of high school, I have been heavily involved in RHS’s gymnastics team. I have fallen in love with the sport and the team; I was elected as a co-captain. Unfortunately, with the pandemic, this journey has been paused. I have also been a member of Key Club for three years, with this being my second year as president. I am also a member of the Human Services Advisory of Renton and have been a part of this committee since 10th grade. Being the only youth among 11 other members has taken me out of my comfort zone and made me gain confidence in how I interact with adults in a professional setting. This committee discusses the needs of the community and how funds will be allocated to fulfill those needs.
Although my hobbies revolve around creativity and include dancing, singing, and painting; my future career goals include earning my Real Estate license and earning an MBA through UW Foster School of Business. I am aspiring to focus on the logistics behind business administration and Information Systems.
 

Jenny Huynh

October Student of the Month

Thank you for the honor of being a Rotary Youth of the Month for October. I am a senior at Renton High School, hold a cumulative GPA of 3.9, and I am a part of the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme.
I am currently the Vietnamese Student Association (VSA) Vice President and the Treasurer for Junior State of America.  In my high school career I have been Vice president for the Freshmen class of 2020 and Class President during my sophomore year. I earned a letter on the RHS' tennis and gymnastics varsity team, and you may have seen me perform at the Multicultural show the last three years.
Outside of school, I am involved in my church's Vietnamese classes and also volunteer with the Student Conversation Association.
My future career plan is to become a dermatologist to be able to help people who struggle with skincare.

 I am now in the process of enrolling in South Korea's Silla University to study the Korean language for two years. Then, I intend on pursuing a BA in Fashion Design at Seoul National University. After, I may continue and earn a PhD in Fashion Management. I hope to become a fashion designer for my own company based in South Korea, or work for a major fashion company I love  so I can input my creative pieces into the work-space.

Richie Doan

December Student of the Month

Thank you for the honor of being the Rotary Youth of the Month for December.

I am a senior at Renton High School, I have a cumulative GPA of a 3.99,  and am a student in the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme.

Playing the violin and running are my hobbies and really help in stretching my physical and cognitive capabilities. I am president of RHS' Running Club and previously participated in cross country and track & field, as well as Key Club and HOSA. I take violin lessons through Keys for Change and have been able to perform at a multitude of venues and for esteemed musicians.

I have a great sense of humor and enjoy making other people laugh.

As for my future plans, nothing is set in stone, however, I am considering a career either in the field of neuroscience or international studies.
