Academic Integrity - OHS Senior David Vowels received the Rotary Scholarship recently at the Oconomowoc Club’s regular noon Monday meeting at Olympia Resort. OHS counselor Jennifer Hoffman said Vowels was resilient through a family’s medical crisis and “unfathomable stress and medical expenses.” “He took on adult responsibilities, and was still an outstanding student with his work ethic and motivation.” Member of German Club, Broadcasting Club, National Honor Society and swim team, Hoffman said Vowels always retained “academic integrity.” Vowels will attend Northern Michigan University, compete on the swim team, and will pursue a Physician’s Assistant degree. Rotary honors students who have overcome challenges in their high school career, providing funding for continuing education.
