School: South High, 12th grade
Parents’ names: William and Melody Brewer
Ellie Brewer, who is a senior at South High, was selected as Laramie County School District 1’s Student of the Week for the week of Sept. 13.
Brewer was nominated by the selection committee because they said she is a highly involved community member, not just at South High, but throughout Cheyenne.
Brewer is member of South High’s school orchestra, as well as her church’s youth orchestra.
She is a member of the South High swim team. And in her off-season, she competes in club swimming and manages the boys swim team.
Along with swimming and the school’s orchestra, Brewer participates in the Robotics Club. She recently received an award for first Dean’s list for the state of Wyoming at the state robotics competition.
Brewer is also passionate about community service. She is a member of FBLA and performs numerous hours of community service.
“Ellie manages to maintain a weighted GPA of a 4.1,” Assistant Principal Kristen Siegel said, “while balancing all of her extracurricular activities.”
After high school, Brewer would like to study marine biology in college and continue swimming. She hopes to work in marine rescue and rehabilitation in the future
