Claire Traverse named Teen of the Month

Claire Traverse has been named Teen of the Month for April by members of the Steamboat Springs Teen Council. The Steamboat Springs High School junior is a strong student and also a member of the cross country team and is captain of the high school Nordic skiing team.

Traverse is also a leader of Wildlife, a version of Young Life tailored to kids in middle school, and she plays piano for the high school drama troupe, jazz band and Steamboat Springs Christian Center.

Travers said her motivation to be involved in the community is driven by the desire to make Steamboat a better place for everyone.

After high school, Traverse plans to attend college but has not chosen a major. She wants to do something with math, specifically statistics or calculus. She also would like to travel on a mission trip.

“I have had many people that have been a huge influence for my life,” Traverse said. “The biggest thing that all of them have taught me is that worry is useless because God has a plan for my life. He has a direction, so I just need to trust in him.”

Traverse loves to ski, enjoys reading teen romance novels and also spends free time cooking and baking.

Steamboat Springs Teen Council is sponsored by the city of Steamboat Springs and Grand Futures Prevention Coalition and funded through a grant from Routt County United Way and Yampa Valley Community Foundation.
