Scholarship Spotlight

Celia Rothermel

2019 Kim & Ruth MacCloskey RAMI Music Scholarship

I am Celia Rothermel, a senior at Durand High School. I play the flute, piccolo, and tenor sax, and have been involved in Band and Jazz Band. Other important involvements for me have been Scholastic Bowl, Science Olympiad, National Honor Society, Cross Country, Track, WYSE (Worldwide Youth Science and Engineering) and Show Choir. I will be attending Rockford University in the fall to study biochemistry and then want to go on to obtain a degree in pharmacy.  

Though science will be the focus of my future, I do want to continue to play music in college and long after college. Read more.
