This month’s National Renaissance Student of the Month is Julianna Clouser from Kingman Academy of Learning High School in Kingman, AZ. Nominator Erin Schreurs writes (lightly edited):
“Julianna has been a driving force in our Renaissance program since her freshman year when she attended JRGC. Since then she has been involved in almost every Renaissance activity, and has served as a co-captain the last two years. She is the first person to volunteer in any capacity, serving on committees, planning events, and supporting other students and staffulty. Most notable, this year Julianna planned and executed one of biggest events of the year, our annual Fall Carnival event. This event is open to the public, and she managed to create an event that was welcoming to all ages in our community and encouraged families to have fun together. She organized games, gathered volunteers, created advertisements, contacted vendors, and collected donations, just to name a few things. As an advisor, Julianna is one of the first Renaissance members I contact when I need help, or have ideas I want to share. Her enthusiasm and love of the Renaissance program and mission is at the forefront of all her activities, and she is a dazzling example of a the character and actions of a student leader.“
