Butler County Chapter NSDAR honors BCHS Senior Lydia Wilcox as Good Citizen

Lydia Wilcox is the 17-year-old daughter of Tonya Wilcox of Morgantown and William Wilcox of Bowling Green. While attending Butler County High School, she has been an active member of the Chamber and Madrigal Choirs and has participated in a multitude of choral events including singing at local churches, sporting events, WKU Honors Choir, Quad State Choir, All State Choir, KSBA annual meetings and the Boys State Basketball tournament at Rupp Arena. She is a member of BETA club and placed first in Creative Writing at the District competition and second at the State Competition which made her eligible to compete at the National Convention this summer in Savannah, GA. Lydia serves as president of the STEAM club where she has been active with Super Saturdays and other outreach programs in the community with the STEAM Bus. She is also the president of FCA and participates in Courts for Christ, See You at the Pole and local meetings. Other clubs and organizations include the National Society of High School Scholars, WKU Educational Talent Search, Educators Rising, Principal’s Advisory Council and Sources of Strength. Lydia was chosen to participate in the Hugh O’Brian Youth Leadership Conference (HOBY) and took a trip to Chicago with ETS where she toured many landmarks and museums.

While attending high school Lydia has also completed several dual credit classes which will give her a head start as she has committed to attend EKU in the Fall and has been admitted into their Honors Program to study Chemistry and Physics with a concentration in Education. She plans to return to Morgantown to teach at BCHS and hopes to lead more students in her community to see that they can overcome their circumstances and live up to their full potential.

In addition to being a leader in school Lydia is also active at Richland Baptist Church where she sings in the Worship Team, volunteers for VBS, packs and delivers Thanksgiving meals for shut- ins, helps pack shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child, and is active in the Youth Group. Over the past summer she was able to attend a mission trip to Oklahoma where she helped to staff a Summer Camp for low-income families in the Pawnee Tribe and children in the surrounding area. Lydia helped with camp by teaching a science special interest class and leading worship through music.

Lydia was selected by the faculty at Butler County High for the qualities of Dependability (truthfulness, honesty, punctuality); Service (cooperation, helpfulness, responsibility); Leadership (personality, self-control, initiative) and Patriotism (unselfish loyalty to American ideals). Lydia Wilcox will be recognized at the Butler County NSDAR Chapter’s Silver Tea. The tea will be held on Tuesday, April 23 at 7:00 PM at the Butler County High School Commons Area. Several other Butler County students will also be recognized for their achievements at this time.
