Judy Lee, a junior at Los Alamos High School (LAHS), was recently honored as Rotary Student of the Month for March.
Lee is the daughter of Myung Choand Sang Yoon Lee and the sister of Dong Hun Lee.
Lee, an exceptional student, is a member of the National Honor Society, as well as Natural Helpers, a national program through which she was selected by her peers as someone with a natural skill for helping others.
Lee’s sensitivity to others is also marked by her service to the Retired Seniors Volunteer Program where, for four years, she has assisted director Irene Powell with office work, setting up events held at the Betty Ehart Senior Center, serving lunches, posting flyers throughout the community, and ringing the bell for the Salvation Army.
Through National Honor Societyand Key Club, the high school service and leadership organization sponsored by Kiwanis International, Lee has volunteered with the Empty Bowls Project and in making gingerbread houses for children.
As a well-rounded individual, Lee has found a place for sports and the arts in her life.
She is a member of the LAHS Diving Team, and she plays both violin and viola in the Symphonic State Orchestra and the Los Alamos Symphony Orchestra.
Of all her many interests, Lee finds her participation in the LAHS German Club the most engaging. As club president, she has worked to build the club’s presence on campus by holding frequent meetings and by arranging club activities that include watching German movies, playing traditional German games, and listening to German music.
Under her leadership, the German Club has recently initiated a Christmas celebration, Sweets für deine Schätze.
In addition to her mother, Lee was joined at the awards ceremony by LAHS German teacher Anita Boshier, whom Lee selected as the teacher who has had the most positive influence on her life.
The Rotary Club of Los Alamos selects one student each month of the school year to honor as a Student of the Month.
In addition to high school seniors, high school juniors are now eligible for the recognition.
Students are nominated by their teachers and chosen on the basis of their academic achievement, extra-curricular activities, and, in particular, their service to the community.
As a part of Rotary International, the oldest and largest service organization in the world with more than 1.2 million members, the Rotary Club of Los Alamos gratefully acknowledges the contributions Students of the Month and their families make to our community, a principle reflected in the organization’s motto, Service Above Self.
