Dagny Streit '22 has been selected as a 2021 Carson Scholar. The Carson Scholars program is a widely known program devoted to recognizing students who excel in both academics and humanitarian efforts. Streit’s name appears on page 19 of the published 2021 Scholars list. Carson Scholars receive a $1,000 scholarship. SM can only nominate one student; therefore, being selected to represent SM is quite an honor.
In addition to Carson Scholars, Streit, along with three of her peers, was nominated by the SM Social Studies Department to interview for a spot with California Girls State. California Girls State is a prestigious program that allows students to be a part of a mock-government while developing leadership skills and networking with other students from across the state. Delegates are nominated by their school, interviewed and selected by an American Legion Auxiliary representative. Four SM junior girls interviewed with the representative and Streit was selected to represent SM this summer at California Girls State.
