Never succumbing - OHS Senior Cassie Muffler received the Oconomowoc Rotary Student Scholarship Award Monday. Nominating OHS counselor Susan Verhagen said that she’d witnessed Cassie growing from a “timid, shy girl to a confident, engaging young adult.” “She never succumbed to obstacles,” said Verhagen, “….she is an example of kindness and empathy in action.” Cassie was diagnosed with a rare auto immune disease as a young girl and fought to stay healthy, attend classes, and raise her GPA in high school. “Cassie recognized her own strengths.” Initiating a Valentines for veterans project, serving as youth apprentice with the Downtown Oconomowoc Business Association, active in Students for Service and liaison to the Oconomowoc Junior Women’s Club, “Cassie shows an incredible passion to give back to her community,” said Verhangen. Cassie plans to attend UW-Milwaukee this fall to become an event planner. “This student deserves the best that life has to offer,” concluded the counselor. Cassie thanked members for recognizing her strengths and advocacy role. Rotary honors students who have overcome challenges in their high school career, providing funding for continuing education.
Talented Youth - The Nature Hill band, choir and orchestra offered segments of their outstanding music program. Instructors described students’ sense of discipline in adhering to the extensive practice requirements. Students told Rotarians how they had “grown so much as musicians. We never give up and we stay confident in ourselves.” Students also paid tribute to their teachers. “Our teachers are there to support us. They are there to help us become the best people possible.”
