(Minooka) - Minooka Community High School congratulates senior Rachel Kirkolis, daughter of Jim and Laurie Kirkolis of Channahon, for being named the Channahon-Minooka Rotary Club “Student of the Month” for January.

Academically, Rachel maintains a 4.42 grade-point-average (on a 4.0 scale), has been named to the honor roll throughout her high school career, has won the MCHS Academic Excellence Award for the past three years, and has been named an Illinois State Scholar.

Outside the classroom at MCHS, she is a member of the following teams and student organizations: girls’ golf, girls’ soccer, Indian Athletic Leadership Club, National Honor Society, and Spanish National Honor Society.

Away from MCHS, Rachel also plays travel soccer for Chicago Rush South.

“Your community is the home where you grow up,” she said. “It is important to give back and help maintain it, and to also help members of it that are struggling.”

In the fall, Rachel plans to attend Western Michigan University, where she will major in exercise science and minor in Spanish.
