On Tuesday, February 13th, we honored our February Student of the Month, Chelsey Kim.  Chelsey is a resident of Mequon and is the daughter of Jake and Young Too Kim.  Chelsey also has two sisters.
Chelsey is a senior at Homestead High School where she is the co-president of the Rotary Interact Club, an organization for young people ages 12-18 that focuses on Rotary’s motto of “Service Above Self” by developing leadership skills through various school and community service projects.  Through Rotary Interact, one of the events that Chelsey led raised money to purchase over 100 books for St. Marcus in Milwaukee.  She shared a heartwarming story with our club describing the gratitude and emotion from these young children as they delivered the books to children, most of whom had never before owned a single book.  She also launched a new “Trick-or-Treat for Hunger” project which raised over 760 pounds of food for the Ozaukee Food Pantry.
For the past 4 years, Chelsey has played the violin for the Milwaukee Youth Symphony Orchestra.  She also plays violin for her church and several local nursing homes.  She is an active member of Best Buddies, the Spanish Club, Girls Exploring Math & Science and Forensics, among several other clubs.
As for college, she is planning to study Psychology and is still deciding between Rochester University, Emory University and University of Wisconsin – Madison. 
Chelsey, we thank you for your “Service Above Self” and all that you have done to make your school and community a better place!
