Zoe Trakas, Chesterton High School (Chesterton, IN)
With a current cumulative grade point average of 4.6, dedicated athlete, and avid volunteer, Zoe Trakas is an exceptional member of the Chesterton High School community.
Zoe is a four-year team member and scholar athlete for the Chesterton High School golf team. In the community, she cleans the high school greenhouse, makes dog toys for local animal shelters, volunteers at the elementary school fun fair, and has helped with the American Heart Association walk set-up.
She is a participant in the International Baccalaureate program and loves any opportunity to travel aboard.
“Zoe is a quiet yet driven student,” said her nominator, Dave Kasarda. “She chose to enter the International Baccalaureate program as the curriculum prepares students for college and the emphasis on community service.”
You can find Zoe at the Sand Creek Country Club outside of school, working as a part-time golf attendant.
