Fahey awarded by Chestertown Rotary
Also recently awarded by the Chestertown Rotary is Laura Fahey, the daughter of Steve Fahey of Brant Lake. Those Therio said Laura is articulate and intelligent, who has focused on her pursuit of excellence.
Therio noted she was nominated or chosen as her class's Most Outstanding Female for several years running.
She's not only a member of North Warren's National Honor Society chapter, but is active in MOAS, which has influenced her present career goals of working in International Relations, Economics and Government.
This National Honor Society student personifies well-rounded in all areas. She is no stranger to hard work and a full schedule. Laura has been an integral component of the Girls Field Hockey and Basketball teams for four years. She is also active in the Interact club, for which she has served as President or Vice President for several years.
Her school involvement includes service on the Prom Committee, Student Council and the school newspaper.
She has received top awards in Global Studies, public speaking and physical education. Other honors include the school's Good Character Award, and the Sportsmanship Award for two years. She was chosen as captain of both Varsity and JV Field Hockey teams, and is considered a vital element in their success.
Laura's natural abilities in working with others are extremely complementary to her
Therio said Laura possesses an ability to work with others, which was a factor in her being chosen as one of the regional representatives to the national MOAS convention this December in Washington, D.C.
Next fall, Laura plans to pursue studies in the field of International Relations. So far, she has been accepted by Drexel College and the state universities of Maine and New Hampshire.
Therio said Laura provided an outstanding example of leadership and achievement for other students, as well as being thoughtful and loyal to her friends.
