Savannah Geary, of John Carroll High School, was nominated as the Woman of the Year in the Rising Star category for the Junior League of Indian River County. The JCHS senior was nominated for demonstrating outstanding commitment in her community with fresh ideas, energy and enthusiasm.
Savannah was honored at an awards luncheon in April at the Moorings Club, along with the other distinguished nominees and winners. This talented and philanthropic young woman is committed to helping others. She is an Altar Server at St. Helen Catholic Church, volunteers for Youth on a Mission and Habitat for Humanity and tutors those in need.
Savannah is a proud member of the JCHS lacrosse team, History Club, Anchor Club, Drama Club co-president, National Honor Society, Student Government Association, Alpha Peer Ministry Group, and the award-winning Envirothon Team, earning first place at regionals and second place in state competition last year.
In addition to Savannah's having the highest GPA in her senior class, she is the editor of the yearbook, an Advanced Placement Scholar, member of the Duke Talent Identification Program, a Merit Commended Scholar, Wofford Scholar, winner of the Bausch & Lomb Rochester Science Award, and the highest scorer in her class on the NEDT exam. Savannah has also earned the John Carroll American Literature Award, Chemistry Advanced Placement Award, and World Literature Award.
It is for these reasons that John Carroll High School was proud to nominate Savannah Geary of Vero Beach for this distinction.
