Soroptimists honor 18 high school students at Youth Appreciation Luncheon
On April 18, Soroptimist International of Truckee Donner hosted its annual Youth Awards Luncheon, honoring 18 Truckee and Sierra high school students nominated by a department head from each school.
These students are selected for accomplishments above and beyond what is expected by someone at their level. The majority stand out to their peers and teachers for many reasons, including determination, accomplishments and overcoming obstacles.
The students were treated to a pizza/pasta lunch at Zano’s, received a certificate of recognition and a $20 gift card to Full Deli Belly sponsored by SITD. During the luncheon, students completed a one-on-one interview with a Soroptimist member. Members then introduced the student, shared what was learned in the interview and read the accolades and reasons for recommendation by the department head.
“It was a touching, fun-filled event for both students and SITD members alike,” Soroptimist Carri Wik said in a news release. “These are terrific local kids who have an inherent drive to achieve and it’s really nice to be able to recognize them for their hard work and accomplishments. Their future goals include art, engineering, medicine and horse training. “
