Sam Corey: Liberty Rotary Student of the Month

May 28, 2024 - Congratulations to Sam Corey, from Liberty High School, who is Hillsboro Rotary Student of the Month. Sam received her award certificate accompanied by Liberty Theater Director, Janet Van Wess, who helped turn Sam on to the arts, including theater, choir. Her teacher, Richard Shearing, taught her ceramics, which became her career pathway. Sam has won both national and state ceramics awards. She's honored to be chosen as the Rotary Student of the Month, and plans to take a gap year to continue her work in ceramics, with the intention of making that her full-time career. Keep creating, Sam, we look forward to seeing more of your ceramics in the years to come!
