The Rossmoor Woman’s Club recently honored Los Alamitos High School seniors Kaitlyn Wong and Lachlan Keller as Students of the Month for April and May, giving each a $500 scholarship.

Both students are multitaskers with wide-ranging interests.

Kaitlyn is president of Los Al’s Model United Nations, president of Students Against Hunger, a leader of the GWAM diversity program and a tutor with the Spanish Honors Society.  She also volunteers during the summer at Weaver Elementary School and enjoys calligraphy and journaling. After high school, she hopes to study environmental engineering at UC San Diego.

Lachlan says he is no stranger to pushing himself, both physically and academically.  He is a member of the Los Al surf team, drums in a heavy metal cover band (with gigs at the Gas Lamp in Long Beach) and has published a fantasy novel, Starshatterer.  He enjoys travel and has visited seven continents, including spending a semester in Switzerland, going skydiving in Canada and eating pizza in Iran.  Lachlan plans to study computer science at Yale.
