Anderson named Rotary Student of the Month
Jennings Anderson, a four-year Lowell Whiteman School day student, was honored as Rotary Student of the Month at the Oct. 16 meeting of the Steamboat Springs Rotary Club. He is the son of Steamboat Springs residents Towny and Jodi Anderson.
This is not the first time Anderson has been singled out for recognition. Last year, he received an Outstanding Junior Award from the University of Colorado at Boulder. This year, the senior maintains an “A” grade average in advanced and honors classes.
As a volunteer with Comunidad Integrada, Anderson spends Thursday evenings in informal dialogues with native Spanish speakers. Through foreign trips to Bhutan, Costa Rica and Bolivia, Jennings has been a part of global service. In Costa Rica, he participated in an ecological project that tagged endangered giant turtles and relocated their eggs to safe locations. Last year, he helped create a water filtration system designed to bring safe, clean water to a Bolivian village.
Anderson also provides invaluable technical assistance to the school and his classmates. According to his teachers, he has spent countless hours – often after school and during vacations – installing systems and trouble-shooting network issues at the school. He helps students and teachers daily with wireless set-up, laptop questions, printing problems and data recovery.
“We are very proud to honor Jennings as our Rotary Student of the Month,” Rotary president Sandy Evans Hall said.
