From an April 29, 2021, Rotary Club of Mill Creek press release.
The April 2021 Students of the Month were selected with the theme of Scholar/Athlete.
During his time as a Wildcat he has excelled both in the classroom and on the athletic field, and is a most deserving winner.
Bo has virtually a perfect GPA in the classroom with a cumulative GPA of 3.96 while taking a plethora of AP and college level courses.
On the athletic field he is a four-time varsity award winner in both cross-country and track and has been the best runner at Archbishop since his sophomore year.
Bo capped off a decorative prep cross country career earning 1st team All-Wesco in the 2A/3A division, winning three out of four races by an average margin of 57 seconds.
He is eyeing a standout track season this spring with goals of running some of the top times in school history in the 1600 and 3200 meters.
Off the track, Bo is an outstanding young man, with an exceptionally strong character. He is a focused hard worker, with a strong moral compass and distinctive leadership skills.
Bo Carlton is truly an extraordinary young man full of potential, drive and promise.
He has decided to attend Boise State with an ROTC scholarship.
The Rotary Club of Mill Creek honors Students of the Month from Henry M. Jackson High School, Archbishop Thomas J. Murphy High School, and Sno-Isle TECH Skills Center at the second weekly meeting of each month during the school year.
After being chosen by the principal and staff of their school based on the month's theme, the students and their families are invited to the meeting where each student speaks about their accomplishments and receives a Rotary Club of Mill Creek Student of the Month Certificate.
Rotary Club members can also ask questions of each student about their interests, goals and future plans. Although the meetings are held via ZOOM during COVID, hopefully the students will soon be able to return to live meetings.
