Baker, Redwine Rotary students of the month

NORMAN — Hayley Redwine from Norman High School and Abigail Baker from Norman North High School have been selected as November Students of the Month by the Norman Rotary Club.

The pair, both holding 4.0 grade point averages, attend weekly club meetings on Thursdays at the First Christian Church and are eligible for a year-end scholarship from the civic club.

Baker, the daughter of Chuck and Amy Baker, lists the U.S. Senate Page program as one of her top activities. She spent a month on Capitol Hill serving as a page.

“I have developed an understanding of politics and government in our nation’s capitols,” she wrote in the Rotary application. “I have also improved my leadership skills through meeting personally with both of Oklahoma’s U.S. Senators as well as by working on the Senate floor and in the Senate cloak room observing, interacting and learning firsthand from our nation’s leaders.”

She is involved in the National Honor Society, Student Council, French club, SPUD committee and Key Club. She has been honored by the AP Scholars program, Oklahoma Honor Society, President’s Education Award, Norman Masonic Lodge Student of Today.

Additionally, Baker has been involved in Tomorrow’s Leaders, Teen Advisors of Norman, Junior Class treasurer, OU High School Leadership Conference and Norman North and Fury soccer.

Baker has been employed at Interurban Restaurant and is active with her church youth group. She is considering attending the University of Oklahoma, the University of Virginia, Penn State University and the University of Pennsylvania.

Redwine, the daughter of Philip and Dedra Redwine, singles out her participation in the Norman High cross country and track teams as her top school leadership activities.

“As a senior, I am the top girl on the cross country team as well as the top long distance runner in track,” she wrote in her application. “I demonstrate leadership on my teams by encouraging everyone, getting to know my teammates, leading the prayer before races, having a positive attitude, giving teammates rides to practice, hosting a girls’ team breakfast and setting a good example not only at practice and races, but in the classroom as well.”
