Lauren Lowry is presented with the May Student of the Month plaque from club President Rick Nelson. Lauren was accompanied at the meeting by her family and members of the Castle View High School staff.
Lauren Lowry has been selected as the Rotary Club of Castle Rock’s Student of the Month for May.
Lowry, a just-graduated senior at Castle View High School, was recognized for her strong academic record, her school leadership and her athletic achievements while playing volleyball.
Amanda Malson, a dean of students who introduced Lowry to the club, called Lowry an accomplished scholar, athlete and leader.
Besides being on the National Honor Society for four years and maintaining a 4.14 grade point average, Malson cited Lowry for her leadership at school because of her work on the Link Crew, being in the chemistry club, and being on the Student Athlete Leadership Team for four years. Lowry has taken five Advanced Placement classes. She was also cited for her skills and leadership on the volleyball court. Lowry lettered in volleyball four years and was first team All Conference and First Team All State. She set a school and state record for single assist sets while helping to lead the Castle View team to a state championship in 2017.
Malson said Lowry’s teachers said she was a student that loved to learn and who was humble and had a strong work ethic. Her volleyball coach called her quiet and steady and the heartbeat of the team. Others called her exceptional as a student and a leader in the classroom.
Lowry said she plans to attend Minnesota State University Mankato with scholarships in academics and volleyball. She said she will study exercise science and physical therapy. Her favorite subjects are math and chemistry.
Lowry also was the recipient of one of the Castle Rock Rotary Club’s student scholarships.
Lowry was joined at the club meeting by her parents, Lacy and Chris Lowry, her sister Leanne, her grandmother, CVHS Dean Amanda Malson and CVHS teacher Amy Montague.
