Teenage volunteer honored
Soroptimist International of South Lake Tahoe recently honored Bailey Haws, a senior at Whittell High School, as its Young Woman of the Month for November. She was honored during a luncheon meeting of the service club.
Haws was recognized for her countless hours of volunteer work both at her school and in the community. Her never-ending school spirit is evident at all fund-raisers, school dances and pep rallies of which she is always an integral part. Her wonderful leadership qualities have shone through in activities like serving as vice president of Executive Council this year, organizing and running a mini-cheerleading camp for elementary school-age children last summer, and organizing a pep rally at Kingsbury Middle School last year to promote interest in playing football at Whittell. She also has tutored at Zephyr Cove Elementary School for the past two years.
Described by her teachers as mature beyond her years with a wonderful work ethic, Haws fits in well with adults as well as her peers. She has been a cheerleader all four years and has served at team captain the past two years.
Haws, along with two other girls from her squad, have been chosen by the United Cheerleading Association to cheer in the Macy’s Day Parade this Thanksgiving.
Rated 22nd in her class of 48 with a GPA of 3.47, Haws plans to pursue a career in the business side of the fashion world. She is applying to the University of Nevada, Reno, St. Mary’s, Dominican University, the Art Institute of San Francisco and California State University, Sacramento.
She plans to pursue her bachelor’s degree and eventually become a buyer for one of the larger department store chains.
