Alaina Hardin was honored this month as Castle Rock Rotary Student of the Month for April.
Hardin, a senior at the school, was presented the honor at a joint meeting of the club and the Castle View High Interact Club, a youth Rotary organization, at the high school.
Hardin was introduced to the club by CVHS Principal James Calhoun who called her the kind of student who makes the school stand out.
Hardin is heavily involved in music, student government and other activities at school. She was in choir all four years of school and was in the Music Honor Society grades ninth through 12th. She also has been in the school’s select choirs since her freshman year. She was active in the Friends of Rachel society from ninth to 11th grades and in the Sign Language Honor Society for the 11th and 12th grades.
Calhoun said Hardin’s teacher had nothing but praise for the student. The choir director called her hard working and a valuable member of the school’s two top choirs. The Student Government advisor called Hardin a quiet leader who does a great job. Her Advanced Placement advisor said Hardin is a talented student, creative, collaborative and one who can be counted on doing the right thing. She carries a GPA of 4.0.
In addition to her school activities, Hardin is involved in the community by helping the homeless through her church and mentoring middle school students in math and assisting them during track races.
Hardin told the club she plans to attend the University of Colorado at Boulder and major in engineering.
