Stephanie Blair, a junior at Los Alamos High School, was recently honored as Rotary Student of the Month for May. Blair is the daughter of Barbara and Stephen Blair.
Blair, who maintains an exceptional grade point average, is a member of the National Honor Society, as well as Los Alamos Youth Leadership, a program for high school students in which teams design, plan and implement projects that benefit the community throughout the year while building strong relationships with family and friends. Blair’s concern for others is marked by her volunteer service to the Los Alamos Heart Council since 2010.
She has been a member of the high school’s Girls Varsity Soccer Team since her freshman year and a valuable player on All-District and All-State teams each of those years. In 2012, Blair was named the All-District defensive soccer player of the year and received an honorable mention at All-State soccer competition the year before. An Albuquerque club soccer team on which she played won the state championship in 2009 and was state runner-up last year and in 2010.
