Timothy Crowell, a senior at West Stokes High School, is the fourth-quarter recipient of the King Rotary Club’s “Good Citizen of the Quarter” award. Timothy and his parents Sam and Patricia Crowell were guests of the Rotary Club’s weekly meeting on April 28, 2016, when the club presented him with a “Good Citizen” plaque.
The Scholarship Committee of West Stokes High School selected Crowell to receive the award because of his excellent academic achievements, outstanding character, and service to the school and community. While maintaining an above average academic average throughout high school, he has been actively involved in a number of student organizations including the National Honor Society, Beta Club, concert band and marching band. He served as a junior marshal and currently ranks near the top of his graduating class. An accomplished musician, Crowell was a member of the All State Youth Choir which met at Greensboro College. He serves as the substitute pianist for his church, Pinnacle United Methodist, and plays for special events and operates the sound system for the men’s vocal group. Additionally, he will provide some of the music for the West Stokes High School 2016 graduation ceremony.
In the fall of this year, he plans to enroll in Greensboro College where he will already have some credits on his college transcript as a result of his successful completion of five advanced placement courses while in high school.
Receiving the “Good Citizen of the Quarter” award is a honor and a scholarship opportunity, as well. Near the end of the academic year, Hutchins and the other three recipients of the award will apply for the King Rotary Club Scholarship and be interviewed by club members. One student will receive a $1,000 scholarship, renewable for three years, and each of the other three will receive a one-time award of $350.
The Rotary Club of King, a chapter of Rotary International, is committed to the principle of, “Service above Self” and demonstrates that commitment through its scholarship program and other community betterment projects. Projects are funded by member donations and community support of the club’s annual fundraiser held each September. The club meets each Thursday at 7:00 a.m. at P.B. Clark’s Family Restaurant in King. Guests are welcome to attend meetings without a formal invitation or prior notice.
