Braxtyn Ellsworth: Hillsboro High Rotary Student of the Month

January 9, 2024 - Congratulations to Braxtyn Ellsworth, a junior at Hillsboro High School, who is Hillsboro Rotary Student of the Month. Braxtyn received her award certificate joined by Hilhi Activities Director Sarah Cole, and Athletic Director/Vice Principal John Matsuo. Braxtyn is proud of her success at Hilhi. She is currently the girl's basketball captain, vice president of the Hilhi Black Student Union, and director of spirit for student government. She attributes her growth to the culture of outreach at Hilhi. During the holidays, students adopted families in need, providing gifts and necessities for over 40 district families, and now, they're getting ready for the winter formal next month. As for her future plans, Braxtyn is still figuring things out, but plans to attend a four-year university, with Oregon schools definitely in the running, and hopes to pursue a career in education. Congratulations and best wishes to Braxtyn in all of her future endeavors!
