Quincy Soroptimists honor Aidan Powers as Soropti-student

Soroptimist International of Quincy honored Aidan Powers as its most recent Soropti-student during its December lunch meeting.

The Quincy High School faculty selected Aidan for his outstanding leadership, academics, community service and activities. Aidan is this year’s ASB president, four-year football team captain, wrestling and track team member, as well as active in California Scholarship Federation and the S-Club.

He has held offices in S-Club for four years and looks forward to the upcoming canned food drive and walk-a-thon. His interest in forestry led to his volunteering with the Sierra Buttes Trail Stewardship Youth Trail Crew.

Aidan described his senior project, “I am researching sports nutrition for wrestlers. Once I complete the research I’m going to compile all of the information and hold a presentation for the wrestling team to inform them on how to properly refuel carbs and electrolytes throughout tournaments and practices for maximum performance.”

Aidan has received a full ride Naval Reserve Officers Training Corps (NROTC) Scholarship to Cal Berkeley and also submitted an application to the Naval Academy.

He wants to thank everyone in the community who has helped guide him to success.
