Soroptimist recognizes Whittell senior

Sasha Silver was recently honored at a luncheon at Harrah’s as Soroptimist International of South Lake Tahoe Young Woman of the Month for January.

A senior at George Whittell High School, she is the daughter of Allen and Charna Silver of Round Hill.

Silver is a true leader both in her school and in the community. Her sincerity and non-judmental personality have developed her into an extremely compassionate young woman who had done countless hours of community service. From coat or canned food drives, to walk-a-thons for the Women’s Center, to collecting money for Red Cross, she is always positive and encouraging to everyone around her. In recognition of this community service outpouring, the Tahoe-Douglas Rotary Club recently awarded her the “Jack Dayton Service Above Self” award.

This eagerness to serve has been evident at Whittell High School, where she has served as class representative for the past three years, Key Club treasurer in ninth and 10th grades, served on Peer Court, and this year is the secretary for the National Honor Society and the Executive Council’s rally commissioner.

She has performed with the Black & White Choir all four years, and has participated in three of the school’s plays.

Her athletic qualities have not gone unnoticed, either. She has played varsity softball all four years, run varsity cross country, and is a varsity cheerleader, serving as co-captain the past two years.

Silver plans to attend a four-year college in the fall and has applied to several schools from Indiana to Colorado to the University of Nevada, Reno.

Her big heart, and even bigger smile, will take her far in life.
