Outstanding Young Adult award
BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – The Melbourne Chamber of Commerce recently awarded Kelly van Woesik, a senior at Satellite High, with the Outstanding Young Adult award.
The Outstanding Young Adult award program has a long history, as it has recognized exceptional students at BPS high schools for more than 25 years. Seniors are selected from each of local high schools and one student from each school is recognized each month at a Chamber luncheon.
While the student’s scholastic record weighs heavily in the application, the Chamber of Commerce looks for well-rounded individuals that have exhibited strong leadership skills during their high school career.
“Selection for this award is not easy; there are many students that have exceptional scholastic and service records,” stated Sarah Sulski, Melbourne Chamber event coordinator.
Van Woesik is a 4.0 student who majors in technical design within Satellite’s fine arts academy. She is the 2016 captain of the girl’s swim team and will graduate in June with an industry certification in AutoCAD.
She is very involved in several academic organizations including the National Honors Society, the Mu Alpha Theta Math Club and she was one of five students chosen to represent Satellite at the 2016 Indian River Lagoon Enviro-thon.
