Cherokee Trail High School senior honored by Aurora Rotary Club
Earning early admission to Stanford University is just one of Janei Maynard’s many accomplishments.  The Cherokee Trial High School senior has also been accepted at Purdue and Regis universities, is a semi-finalist for the National Achievement Scholarship, and is maintaining a weighted grade point average of 4.5 in her challenging schedule of International Baccalaureate and Advanced Placement classes.  It’s no wonder she received the Aurora Rotary Club’s “Outstanding High School Student Award” on February 15.

“Janei is a kind, hard-working leader and role model,” said Rebecca Moehring, an assistant principal at Cherokee Trail, in her nomination of Maynard.  “As a member, state qualifier, competitor and choreographer of many clubs and activities at Cherokee Trail High School, Janei consistently models the motto of this school, ‘Our actions will ignite the genius and nurture the goodness within us all.’”

Maynard participates in the CTHS Hip-Hop Club, Math Team, French Club, National Honor Society and theatre program.  She has also served as Step team co-captain and was a DECA state qualifier.  Her many community service activities include being a mentor and presenter for middle school students at the Especially Me Conference, a teacher’s aide at Second String Child Care and Aurora Quest K-8, and a volunteer for Bessie’s Hope, an organization that provides companionship to senior citizens.

Each year the Aurora Rotary Club recognizes one high school and one middle school student from Aurora Public Schools and Cherry Creek Schools in Aurora.  The students receive an award and their schools receive $100 to be used by a school club or organization.  Chelsi Keaton, a student from Gateway High School in Aurora Public Schools, was honored with Maynard.

“The criteria for the Aurora Rotary Club Outstanding High School or Middle School Student Award requires that students excel in four area of achievement,” said Aurora Rotary Board Member Wendy DeBell.  “Those areas are Scholarship, Community Service, School Citizenship and Significant Improvement.”

The Aurora Rotary Club is an organization of business and professional leaders involved in a variety of community service projects, including the eradication of polio world-wide.  They are also involved in efforts to help children at risk, fight poverty and hunger, and support the environment.  The Rotary motto is “Service Above Self.”
