  • Phillips named February Student of the Month

    Emma Phillips, a junior at Los Alamos High School, was recently honored as February’s Rotary Student of the Month. Phillips is the daughter of David and Edie May Phillips and sister of Nate and Elyse.
    The Rotary Club of Los Alamos selects one student each month of the school year to honor as a Student of the Month. This year’s recipients reflect a combination of both LAHS seniors and juniors; next year, only juniors will be recognized in hopes of inspiring their interest in Rotary programs that fall during the summer following junior year. Students are nominated by their teachers and chosen on the basis of their academic achievement, extra-curricular activities, and, in particular, their service to the community.
    Phillips’s involvement in school and church activities demonstrates the important role community service plays in her life. With interests in serving the disadvantaged, Phillips has traveled with the youth group from her church, Bethlehem Evangelical Lutheran, to feed homeless people in Denver. Through similar church activities, she has had the opportunity to cook meals for the needy at St. Elizabeth Shelter in Santa Fe, which provides emergency lodging, food and counseling for the homeless.
