Trace and Jared Erwin, sons of Mike and Carrie Erwin, have been named Aberdeen Rotary Students of the Month.
The twins are both Eagle Scouts and National Honor Society members. Both also serve as field marshals in the Aberdeen High School Marching Band, supporting the drum major.
Trace is most proud of his Eagle Scout project at Amazing Grace Church, which “took over 150 hours to complete extensive landscape clearance and new plantings, installation of a handrail and 5-foot-long raised bed.” He is ranked 10th in his class, with a GPA of 3.98. He plans to attend Central Washington University’s aviation program to earn a professional pilot degree, followed by enlistment in the military to learn how to fly military aircraft.
Jared is valedictorian of the AHS Class of 2019 with a 4.00 GPA. He tutors students in geometry and plays on the AHS boys tennis team. As a student leader at Outdoor School this past fall, he taught sixth-graders about the environment. He also is the current senior patrol leader of Aberdeen Scout Troop 4005. “I put in the extra time and effort to mold the younger Scouts into mature and successful Scouts, just like other Scouts did for me,” he said. Jared would like to attend Embry Riddle Aeronautical University for a BA in aerospace engineering.
Each year, the Aberdeen Rotary Club honors Aberdeen High School seniors through the Student of the Month recognition and scholarship program. One senior is recognized each month between October and May. In June, two of these students are selected for scholarships to the school of their choice.
