The Kiwanis Club of Evanston concluded its student recognition program for the 2014-15 school year by honoring student athletes from Evanston Township High School in April and May.
ETHS seniors James Allen, Remy Amarteifio, Lauren English, Tommy Haughey, Olivia Post and Millie Rosen received the Ted Van Zelst Award.
Remy (Girls Track & Field), James (Boys Baseball), and Millie (Girls Water Polo and Girls Swimming) were recognized in April. Remy, a hurdler, is looking to study biology after high school. James, who has accumulated more than 150 service hours, credits his sports activity for helping him get to know other ETHS students. Millie will pursue a future in engineering and has enjoyed the collaborative efforts with her teammates.
Lauren (Girls Lacrosse and Cross Country), Tommy (Boys Lacrosse), and Olivia (Girls Soccer) were recognized in May. Lauren, who is a member of SOAR (Students Organized Against Racism), plans to become a neurosurgeon and said that playing sports has made her very aware of how to manage one’s time. Tommy credits sports as a source of his diverse group of friends and plans to study sociology and economics. Olivia, who founded the charitable organization Cents4Soccer, said her experience as captain and four-year goalie taught her that hard work truly pays off.
