RUMFORD – This year Shannon Daley and Allison Roy, both Dirigo High School sophomores, have been chosen to attend Rotary Youth Leadership Award training in June. They were selected based on careful review and scoring by a committee of Rumford Area Rotarians. Scores are based on civic and school activities, leadership skills, recommendations and the application’s completeness.

Daley is a homeroom representative and a freshman friend, who helps freshmen through their first year in high school. She helped fix up Hearts for Hope homeless shelter and coached elementary school basketball players. She plays basketball, soccer and softball for Dirigo High School and also enjoys swimming, tennis, camping and hiking.

Daley has received classroom awards for physical education, English, honors algebra, honors biology and honors English, as well as one for attaining the honor roll for a full school year.

Roy is a Student Council member, a varsity cheerleader and a member of the School Schedule Planning Committee at Dirigo High School. During the 2003-2004 dance season she assisted her teacher with younger dancers. She also created a dance workshop for young children at the library. She plays tennis and soccer for Dirigo and was chosen for the All Rookie Team in Dirigo’s conference area. Roy holds certificates of achievement in algebra and English, as well as a certificate of achievement for earning honors over three consecutive quarters. She is an assistant coach for middle school cheerleaders.

Both Daley and Roy are members of Interact, a Rotary-sponsored service club for high school age youth. The local club has taken on such service projects as a community garden, operating the kitchen at a craft fair and raising money for Rotary international projects. The young women will be introduced to Rumford Area Rotarians on May 16 when they attend the regular Rotary Club meeting held at noon at the Green Church in Mexico.
