WAXAHACHIE — In last week’s Rotary meeting, Rotarian Clyde Melick had the pleasure of introducing Global High School Principal Ken Lynch as a special guest. Lynch then presented the Global High School Student of the Month Award for January to Macy Reese.
Reese is the daughter of Scott and Kim Reese of Waxahachie. She is a sophomore at Global this year, and Lynch said the school is very proud to offer this award to such a deserving student. He also noted that Reese excels both academically and personally in all that she does.
Reese is on the A and B honor roll for both her college courses and high school classes. She has been given this honor, not only for her academic accomplishments but for her many hours of service in the community.
As a first year member of Interact, Reese said her favorite service activity is Hidden Miracles. Hidden Miracles is a service provided by the Cowboy Church of Ellis County to parents of mentally and physically challenged children. Interact members volunteer to entertain and care for these children for several hours a month so their parents can have an evening out.
In her free time, Reese said she enjoys painting on canvas. However, as a serious science student, she plans to continue her studies at Texas A&M University and become a forensic scientist.
"It is an honor for Rotary to acknowledge such an outstanding student as Macy Reese with a plaque with her name engraved on it," Lynch said. "This plaque will hang in the halls of Global High School for many years to come."
