Chaparral, Ponderosa students honored by Rotary

Sydney Tyler, Sarah Gates recognized for September

Posted

Sydney Tyler of Chaparral High School and Sarah Gates of Ponderosa High School were each earned Student of the Month honors from the Rotary Club of Parker for the month of September.

Teachers describe Tyler as a kind, responsible young lady who does everything the right way. English teacher Mike McEwan described Tyler as one of the “kindest, most empathetic young people I have ever known.”

“When a student is in need of support, Sydney throws herself wholeheartedly into support mode,” McEwan said. “While others stand by and wonder who to help, Sydney doesn't wait for someone else to take over.”

Gates ranks fourth in her class of 295 and is a member of the National Honor Society, is the Future Business Leaders of America chapter president, Technology Student Association chapter president and founder, Yoga Club president and founder, has been on the student council sophomore and junior years and is a student intern at Air Academy Federal Credit Union and Link Crew.

“Sarah Gates is a model student who approaches learning more like an artist than a scientist,” said Gary Cordray, a teacher of Gates'. “She understands that education is not just a means to a job, but an opportunity to expand one's world view by exploring the ideas of great men and women who came before us.”
