Central High School junior, Lauren Holm, is the 2018 recipient of the American History Award presented by the Woodmen of the World.
Woodmen of the World is one of the largest fraternal orders in America today. The student selected for the honor must have a proficiency in American History. The Woodmen of the World organization encourages the study of our country’s history by challenging students to make their best grades and demonstrate outstanding performance in American history.
Lauren has demonstrated both love of country and community as a student at Central High School. Josh Smith, Lauren’s Advanced Placement U.S. History teacher, said, “Lauren is the highest achiever at CHS in U.S. History, not only in test scores, but more importantly in character and hunger for knowledge.” David Rooks, the Social Studies Department Chair, also had high praise for Lauren, saying, “Lauren embodies what a premier student is all about. She is extremely smart, works incredibly hard, and is enthusiastic about learning. We are so lucky she is a part of the Lion Family.”
