Tim Young, a Laguna Beach High School student, was recently recognized by the Laguna Beach Rotary Club as Rotary Student of the Month for his excellence in social studies. Tim accepted the award alongside his teacher, Kristen Parker.
Every month, the school nominates a new student to be recognized in eight different categories of academics, such as math, science, social studies and English.
The 17-year-old hopes to attend American University in Washington, D.C. He recently applied and is waiting to hear back, according to a Rotary press statement.
