The Rotary Club of Penticton Sunrise’s Student of the Month for March is one of the youngest to receive the award.
Annie Harries is a Grade 9 student at Penticton Secondary School, where she is a member of the leadership class.
As part of the leadership class, she led the Santa-gram project, handling purchasing supplies, selling the goods and organizing her peers for distribution. One of her biggest achievements was selling $28,000 of Purdy’s Chocolates for a net profit of $11,000 that went to the ALS foundation, a cause near and dear to her heart.
In class, she is always asking questions, fully engaged and is never distracted by technology. She works with every single student in her class, and helps students that are in need.
Harries currently maintains a grade point average of 96 per cent.
The Rotary Club of Penticton Sunrise understands the importance of the community’s youth and wishes to recognize outstanding students for unique combinations of achievement in scholastics, extracurricular activities, community involvement, leadership and service to others.
The club works with Penticton Secondary School and Princess Margaret Secondary School to select students who have overcome problems, made significant gains in their lives and are examples for others to follow.
This initiative is made possible with financial assistance from Gateway Casinos as part of their proactive involvement in wide ranging community service projects.
