Chelsea High School Principal Howard Hill says Chance “has demonstrated a commitment to the total school program,” adding that “Chance has been a leader in many school activities during his high school tenure. He has been a member of FFA four years, along with numer- ous other school organizations. His personality has con- tributed much to his success as an outstanding student. Added Hill: “Chance has been actively involved in community and church activities. Chelsea High School students participate with local organizations to help those in need. Chance has been one of our actively involved students. He is a very reliable and responsible leader. By every standard, Chance is one of the most outstanding students at Chelsea High School.”


Brooke Romine Wyandotte High School’s Brooke Romine accepted the 2012 NEOEC College Scholarship for the Ottawa County area. The daughter of Darwin and Jamie Romine of Miami has set her sights on Oklahoma State University, where she intends to pursue studies in microbiology. Brooke graduated Wyandotte High School with a


grade-point average of 4.42 and scored 26 on the ACT. Her impressive list of academic achievement includes completion of AP Calculus BC, and AP Physics C (Me- chanics). Her studies have also included AP U.S. History and AP Statistics.


Brooke holds a diploma from the Oklahoma School of Science and Math and was the recipient of an award for achieving high grade in U.S. History. She is a member of both the Oklahoma and National Honor Societies, serving as historian and president for the latter. Brooke was named to the superintendent’s honor roll and received recognition as student of the month at Wyandotte High School. She held the office of vice- president on the WHS student council and was a member of Fellowship of Christian Athletes.


An active student both academically and athletically, Brooke achieved All-American status as a cheerleader and was an All-Conference Honorable Mention in softball. Her busy schedule included participation in church, tutoring, basketball and the Gifted and Talented Program. “Brooke is a very intelligent young lady,” says Jeremy Radebaugh, instructor at the Afton Regional Center for the Oklahoma School of Science and Mathematics. “She couples this intelligence with an outstanding work ethic and the motivation to succeed.”


Radebaugh commended Brooke for pursuing the challenge of college-level AP courses “that require a strong academic committment from the student” over a two-year period while juggling her regular studies and concurrent enrollment at a local college.


“It would have been easy for Brooke to take an easy academic load as a senior. This makes her performance in such a difficult academic setting all the more impressive. She did not shy away from an intellectual challenge. She instead chose the most challenging path, knowing that this path would prepare her for the rest of her life. It takes a mature and driven individual to make such choices.” Adds Radebaugh: “It was clear from day one that Brooke was committed to becoming the best possible student before graduating high school.”
