Congratulations to Cascade Christian High School Juniors,
Jack Boisen and Madelyn Scott,
our 2015 Rogue Rotary Students of the Month for April, 2015!
They were recognized at a luncheon on Friday, April 24, where they had the honor of hearing guest speaker, Medford Mayor, Gary Wheeler (pictured in background).
Son of Brian and Kerry, is pursuing the Scholar’s Diploma by taking multiple AP classes, while keeping a GPA of 3.89. His current favorite class is AP English. Jack was recognized by Cascade as a Medford Kiwanis Student of the Month in October, 2014.
Jack is a natural leader – he’s currently the current Junior Class President and a student leader in his church’s youth group. For several years, Jack has been the Games Leader for Vacation Bible School as well. He has been on two Youth with a Mission (YWAM) mission trips during high school, serving the homeless and poor. An excellent student and role model to his peers, Jack strives to seek truth and make the morally correct choice, even when that choice is not the easiest.
Jack has participated in many athletic programs including basketball and football, and is currently in club soccer and running varsity track. His hobbies include reading, running, drawing, writing, fighting for justice, hanging with his people, loving his family, friends and his God!
Jack’s future plans include becoming a lawyer and possibly going into politics. He attended a 10 day law focused Leadership Conference at Stanford University last summer. He is interested in being a Criminal Prosecuting Attorney in order to make a difference. In politics, Jack aspires to serve God by striving to make our society a better place.
Daughter of Thomas and Theodora, is a 4.0 student and has maintained exceptional grades throughout her academic career. She is passionate about learning and is currently challenging herself with many rigorous classes, including AP Calculus and AP English 11. Madelyn has received awards of academic excellence in the majority of her classes and has also been recognized by Cascade as a Medford Kiwanis Student of the Month in May. She desires to represent her school satisfactorily through academic achievement and, most importantly, to honor God through everything she does.
In addition to maintaining academic excellence, Madelyn engages in extracurricular activities, such as volunteer work and athletics, which have provided her with opportunities for leadership and personal growth. She currently volunteers at the Southern Oregon Humane Society and on the kids’ worship team at Table Rock Fellowship. She has played competitive soccer for many years, and is a member of the Cascade’s swim and track and field teams. Her volunteering and athletic experiences have taught her the importance of respect and responsibility, as well as how these qualities translate to leading others compassionately.
Madelyn is also very passionate about music – she sings, plays both the French horn and guitar, and leads chapel at Cascade with her own worship team once a month. As the leader of a worship team, Madelyn has strengthened her interpersonal skills with both her peers as well as her teachers, and has learned patience and responsibility when leading a team of peers.
After graduating high school, Madelyn plans to attend college and medical school to become a general practitioner. After becoming a doctor, she would like to spend time working in a third world country because she wants to embrace the diversity of global cultures in a helpful way.
Madelyn is incredibly grateful for the honor of being recognized by the Medford Rogue Rotary in such a special way and would like to thank everyone involved for this phenomenal privilege.[/one_half_last]
