NORMAN — Emily Soreghan, of Norman High, and Morgan Wardlow, of Norman North, have been named Norman Rotary Club students of the month for January.
The two attend weekly luncheons hosted by the Norman Rotary Club at the First Christian Church. They are eligible for a year-end scholarship.
Soreghan, the daughter of Michael and Gerilyn Soreghan, of Norman, has a 4.0 grade point average. In her application, she said she is most proud of her involvement with the Norman Ballet Company. She has danced in every performance and has solo dances.
“The artistic director of the company is having me teach ballet to the beginners, run rehearsals for productions and help organize community outreach — but the payoff is enormous. Learning how to teach and serve as an example is both incredibly humbling and the best feeling in the world,” Soreghan wrote.
She is active with the Rotary Interact Club, the Vegetarian Club, the National Honor Society, the French National Honor Society, the Green Society, Global Awareness Club, Mu Alpha Theta, the Norman Ballet Company and the Catholic youth ministry.
Soreghan is active in ballet, chorus, piano and orchestra and was accepted into the Oklahoma Summer Arts Institute, the Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet and the Miami City Company for ballet summer programs.
She has volunteered at the Norman Public Library, Sam Noble Oklahoma Museum of Natural History, Secret Santa and the Norman Ballet Company. She is considering attending the University of Oklahoma, Stanford, the University of California at Berkeley, Pomona College, Reed College or Indiana University.
Wardlow, the daughter of Chris and Kay Wardlow, of Norman, has a 3.844 grade point average. She is most proud of her membership and leadership on the Norman North fastpitch softball team.
“As a freshman, I earned the starting pitcher position on the varsity team,” she wrote in her application. “This experience showed me that even though I was the youngest player on the field, I could still be a leader.”
