The Wyandotte Figure Skating Club recently received notification from United States Figure Skating that four high school graduating senior club members have received special recognition for their dedication to the sport.

This recognition is applied for by the skaters and is reviewed and selected by USFS officials.

USFS’ Graduating Seniors Program was developed to recognize the achievements of those individuals graduating from high school who have made the commitment to continue their training in figure skating while pursuing their studies.

“This is the first time anyone from our club has been recognized, so having four at one time receive this honor is incredible,” said Julie O’Connor, a spokeswoman for the club.

The award recipients are:

●Haley Elliott, Silver level — Roosevelt High School.

Lauren Harven, Gold level — Cabrini High School (Allen Park).

●Cameron Lindstrom, Gold level — Roosevelt High School.

●Allyson Trombley, Silver level — Roosevelt High School.

Paula Chinavare, president of Wyandotte Figure Skating Club, said participating in extracurricular activities such as figure skating can make a positive impact on student outcomes.

“Figure skaters such as Haley Elliott, Lauren Harven, Cameron Lindstrom and Allyson Trombley dedicate much time and effort to training for major competitions, testing sessions and ice shows, all while juggling their studies and other important activities,” Chinavare said.

“These four young ladies have shown much dedication to the sport of figure skating while maintaining excellent grades throughout their high school years. We are proud of all their accomplishments, and look forward to watching them achieve their goals in college, as well as continuing figure skating as they pursue their dreams.”

USFS student athletes are rewarded based on their highest level of achievement. A total of 700 figure skaters received the Graduating Seniors Program award this year.
