Ashland Kiwanis recently recognized Berkeley Skuratowicz as its March Student of the Month.
Berkeley is a senior at Ashland High School. She is a member of the National Honors Society, has been in honors math for four years, and was named AHS’s 2017 Outstanding Chemistry Student by the American Chemical Society.
She has been involved in both sports and clubs throughout her high school career. She has participated in track for all four years, competing in pole vault and sprinting. She was a goalkeeper on the high school soccer team until her junior year.
Berkeley is the founder and president of the AHS Filmmaking Club, in addition to co-founding the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) Club. She has a passion for science which led her to be elected to the Chief Science Officer position for her high school.
Berkeley has volunteered for a number of organizations. She is the videographer for the AHS Robotics Club, was a summer counselor for Project Up, and was a counselor and videographer for the Talent Maker City summer STEM camps.
Her interests include photography, filmmaking, traveling, camping, mountain biking, hiking, volleyball, reading and drawing.
Berkeley’s college plans will likely include studies at Oregon State University in Corvallis, although she has interests in other schools as well. In college, she is going to pursue a major in either engineering or digital media.
Berkeley received a Kiwanis award certificate and $50 in cash from the club’s Chad Smith. In May, the $1,000 Tommy Laird Kiwanis College scholarship will be awarded to two Youth of the Month recipients.
