Hailey Casillas, daughter of Rodney Taylor and Melissa Casillas has been nominated as Bellaire Public Schools May Rotary Student of the Month. Hailey exudes confidence in herself whether it be in the classroom or in her participation of cross country, basketball, and track & field. She continuously strives to train harder and be the best competitor she can. This same attitude can be seen within Hailey and her high academic achievements in school holding a 3.65 grade point average. Hailey takes pride in her studies and works to educate herself in subjects that both interest and move her. Hailey has taken many elevated online courses in Environmental Science as a high school student in pursuit of her goal to work within the field. She strives to take part within activities that surround the environment, and has even served as the lead survey student for four years working with the Grand Traverse Watershed program.
Hailey’s continuous work with others as a member of the Bellaire chapter of the National Honor Society is only a glimpse into this amazing young female student-athlete who truly embodies great leadership, self-motivation, and the will and drive to succeed. These qualities will only continue to drive her to succeed in her future as a student at Lake Superior State University next Fall.
