2013 Young Female Citizen of the Year Award Recipient
Since her arrival at Kelowna Secondary school, Pauline Schrott has been heavily involved in the ‘Me to We’ program where she served as vice president last year and is currently president. The program’s goal is to improve lives, both locally and globally, of those in difficult situations. She’s also been an active member of the Interact club, part of the Green Team and was chosen as the Public Relations Rep for the 2014 Grad Council.
From co-organizing a Halloween Monster Bash for kids to handing out hot chocolate and free presents at the Rutland Christmas Light Up, Pauline’s list of volunteering at events spans nearly two pages. From drive-thru breakfasts to performing at a CUPE Christmas party, she’s touched the lives of thousands with her thoughtfulness.
At school her volunteer hours have included the English as a second language department where she’s helped with the integration of newcomers. She also spent 50 hours on the Write for Rights global letter writing event for Amnesty International.
Outside of school, Pauline has been volunteering at the Kelowna airport as a junior ambassador. With her knowledge of German, she’s also volunteered as a tutor and helped out at the Kelowna Waldorf School.
