NORMAN — Clancy Cox from Norman High School and Alexander Brigham from Norman North High School have been selected as February Students of the Month by the Norman Rotary Club.
The two attend weekly meetings this month and are eligible for a scholarship in May.
Cox, the daughter of LaKeta Palmrose and Roger Cox, has a 4.0 grade point average. At NHS, she has served as stage manager for the school’s theater performances.
“As a stage manager, I am the director’s technical liaison backstage for every rehearsal and performance,” she wrote in her application. “I manage a crew of between 6 to 12 people, and the cast (from 10 to 40 people)_ comes to me with any questions or problems they might have. I have learned many great leadership skills from the opportunity, being in charge of so many young cast and crew members.”
At NHS, she is involved in Mu Alpha Theta, National Honor Society, Key Club, Aegis Math, the National Forensics League, musicals and the school’s academic team. She has been listed on the honor roll for four years and is an AP Scholar with honors.
She operates a snowcone stand during the summer, has helped with debate and acting tournaments and has volunteered for the Reunion Run. Cox is considering OU, Stanford and West Point for college
Brigham, the son of Dennis and Elizabeth Brigham, has a 3.6 grade point average at Norman North. He spent his past academic year in Belgium as part of Rotary International’s Youth Exchange Program.
“Through this program I’ve learned how to accept differences between beliefs and cultures as well as how to be representative of my own beliefs and my patrimony,” he wrote in his application. “While overseas I acted as an ambassador for the United States of America and its culture, helping dispel stereotypes held by Belgians. I can only thank Rotary through future service for what Youth Exchange has granted me.”
At North, he is a member of the French Club, Engineering, Math and Science Club, National Honor Society, Spanish Club and Rotary Interact Club. He is an AP Scholar and served as a Rotary counselor for inbound exchange students. He has also volunteered for Meals on Wheels.
Brigham is considering OU, Rice, Brown and Columbia universities.
Norman Rotary, Norman’s oldest civic club, meets at noon each Thursday at the First Christian Church.
